Garmont Amica Mid

An all-terrain boot that's supportive enough for big-load backpacking.

Brand: Garmont

Model: Amica Mid


[heavy-duty support]

If you need an ATV of a boot that’s supportive enough for big-load backpacking or mountaineering, the Croda (Syncro is the women’s) is your ride. “When I hiked the North Fork Quinault River Trail in Washington, the Croda bulldozed through river crossings, branches, mud, and snow,” says one tester. The cut is the highest in the test, and the midsole is rigid and thick. Break-in required. $215; 3 lbs. 3 oz.; 8-14; Syncro GTX: $235; 2 lbs. 9 oz. (7); 6-11; garmontusa.com

A sturdy light hiker for when your load is light, the topography is technical or any time you need the extra support of a mid cut. The Amica Mid combines the ankle support of a midcut boot with our most aggressive trail sole for unmatched day hike performance or light load packing.
The upper is highly breathable and offers Gore-Tex® waterproofing for
all-weather protection.
