Gear Review: Dynafit TLT5 Mountain Boot

A boot with slipper-like comfort and weight but incredible stiffness and control

Combine slipper-like comfort and weight with incredible stiffness and control, and you get our favorite AT boot of the year: the TLT5 Mountain. We pushed it to its limit in all types of terrain from Colorado to Iceland and couldn’t find a weakness.

The boots weigh just 2 pounds, 7 ounces each, making it the lightest, most versatile boot we’ve tested.


4 lbs. 14 oz.
