Hi Tec Bryce, light hiking boot (2012-2015) (Retired)
I think they are good value for the $140 asking price. I will continue to use them for formed tracks i.e. those on the Port Hills.

July 2014:I have been using these boots for my fitness walking for about the last year, they are still holding out fine, I estimate I will need to dispose of them later this year as they have started to wear down on the sole.
2017: I am only using these in the garden now as the stitching has started to unravel- they will get chucked when no longer useful
Kathmandu Barigan, medium boot (2013-2015) (Retired)
|Kathmandu Barigan, 2013|
July 2014: I used these boot for all of the 2013/14 tramping season and found them very comfortable. Unfortunately they are starting to delaminate (a common problem), I have glued them up and will use them for day walks on the Port Hills etc. I should get a least another years use out of them on these shorter trips. They lasted as my primary boots for a year so they were worth the $100 I paid for them.
2017: Still using them around the house for yard work.
