LOWA’s new Tibet GTX Hi has just been announced as a winner of the prestigious Best of the Best awarded by Field & Stream. Each year, their editors review new products and innovations and choose the top performing items for inclusion in their annual Best of The Best round-up. Field & Stream has the country’s highest circulation and readership of any outdoor magazine in the world.
The testing is Seal Team 5 formidable. Testers dub the process as the “Field & Stream Torture Tests.” Anything that falters is immediately eliminated. Beyond surviving the torture tests, winning products are ultimately selected based on significance of the innovation, quality of design, and value they bring to the market. Selection criteria varies, depending upon the category, but all winning products share one characteristic: excellence in their field.
“The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest, displaying absolute excellence in their field,” says Slaton White, Deputy Editor of Field & Stream. ‘The Best of the Best is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on gear and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money.”
How many hunters have found themselves in the mountains, on a trail or crossing a field with the best that money can buy in guns and clothing, only to find that their day is ruined by footwear that does not fit, gets wet, slips on rocky terrain or just plain hurts? LOWA boots can prevent this scenario and the Tibet GTX Hi is a good example. Ideal for carrying a large pack while hunting in any weather condition and over rugged off-trail terrain, it utilizes a one-piece, water-repellent nubuck leather upper with a tall shaft for maximum ankle support and a rubber rand for durability and abrasion resistance. The GORE-TEX® lining provides waterproofness and breathability and the patented and proprietary features go on from there.
