Just released this month, Hi-Tec’s Yeti II 200i proves to be a great addition to any trekking collection. Other hiking boots I’ve worn had significant break-in periods. Heck, I’ve even worn those sorts of boots around the house for a few days before actually taking them out on the trail.
The Yetis? I had no second thoughts as I stepped out on the gravel path. They just have an out-of-the-box comfort that you don’t get from regular tennis shoes or lower-end hiking boots. And it’s not like these boots are ridiculously pricey. Actually, as far as hiking boots go, the Yetis are extremely affordable.
You get a lot for the price, too. I was impressed with the insulation. It’s something that I don’t need quite yet, but in the thick of winter, I won’t be able to live without it. When icy conditions appear, my feet will be nice and toasty with that 200g Thinsulate as well as a legion of waterproofing materials. Seriously. This boot boasts Thermo-Dri waterproof/insulated construction, waterproof bootie construction and ion-mask waterproof technology. Needless to say, when water splashed up on my boot, I expected it to not seep in. Let’s just say these boots exceeded my expectations and then some.
The only negative comment I can come up with about the boots are that I wish it came in more colors. Sure, black and brown are typical boot colors, but I really appreciate how a bright orange or blue can spice things up. Other than that, I look forward to sloshing through the snow in these bad boys. Great traction, excellent feel = even happier trails ahead.
