I wanted to give my opinion as a larger than average hiker/hunter. I am 6'5'' and 275lbs and I want a very supportive boot. I tried on Zamberlan, Han Wag, Kenetrek, Crispi, and Lowa. The Lowa Tibet GTX Hi was the most supportive boot I tried. Maybe the other boots are stiff enough for regular size folks, but for a guy my weight the other boots just were not stiff enough. The other boots were very nice, but the Lowa fit my foot best. As a side note my feet usually fall into the "low volume" category of ski boots. I am NOT brand loyal. Any of the boots in the 400-450 price range will likely be very high quality. However, when I have a pack full of elk meat, I am over 400lbs. Most boots that are comfortable enough to hike in all day, are not supportive enough to provide the stability I want when I am loaded heavy. The Lowa Tibet is very comfortable and is as supportive as it can be without being so stiff that you feel like you are in a ski boot. I would advise anyone looking for a serious high mountain hunting boot to give the Lowa Tibet a serious look. As long as Lowa makes the Tibet in the high version, this will be my boot of choice!
