Lowa Tibet GTX Review

The Lowa Tibet GTX boot is one that has continued to remain relatively unchanged over the past ten years or so and there is a very good reason for it - it is a great boot and there's nothing wrong with the way it is!

Lowa Tibet GTX Update Review

The Lowa Tibet is a well-established favourite of mountain hunters in New Zealand, and all over the world for that matter. I have worn the new Tibets for all the hunting we've done in the last few months, including a trip to Mt Cook tahr country. They have proved to be worthy successors to the old models, and are even more comfortable when you put them on.

Gear Review: The LOWA Tibet GTX - are they the ultimate Elk Hunting Boot?

I considered, analyzed, and tried a lot of boots, but kept coming back to the LOWA Tibet. LOWA was established in 1923, in Jetzendorf, Germany, and the Tibet is still handcrafted in Germany to this day. LOWA describes the Tibet as, “Ideal for carrying heavy (50+ lbs.) loads, over long distances in rugged terrain and extreme weather conditions.” Yeah, I would say that sounds like elk hunting!

Lowa Tibets - Great fitting boots

The LOWA Tibet Pro GTX is a rugged boot ideally suited for the roughest of New Zealand’s terrain and for carrying heavy pack weights. The WXL stands for extra wide which is important in NZ where we tend to have wide feet. GTX denotes that the boots are Gore-Tex lined using Lowa’s patented system. This boot is packed with innovation and features all designed to give the wearer a comfortable fit while providing good ankle support. The Tibet boot is fitted with a Vibram Masai sole which has an excellent aggressive self-cleaning tread pattern and is crampon compatible.
