Backpacker Magazine: The Best Gear From Outdoor Retailer Summer Market For years, LOWA has been known for high-quality, durable boots (we gave the Renegade GTX Mid an Editors' Choice Hall of Fame award in 2018). Now, the company is introducing lighter, faster, updated versions of their most reliable products. The Explorer GTX has tried-and-true features like a Vibram Megagrip outsole and a mid-cut cuff, but also boasts modern touches such as a softer, lightweight midsole package made with DynaPU and a thinner toecap to reduce weight. It will also be available in a non-Gore-Tex version.
