I have been on a quest to find the perfect leather hiking boot for many years now. I have been challenged by both many miles of trail as well as changes in boot manufacturing trends, but in this video I take the plunge on Scarpa with a deep dive comparison between their Terra GTX hiking boot and their SL Active backpacking boot. Which one will win my heart?
The video below is about 24 minutes long. If you don’t have that kind of time, jump to timecode 20:10 for a 3 minute recap on shoe specs and my impressions. Thanks for watching! I’d love to hear your feedback. Which boot would you choose?
