Have read the opinions of many on this forum regarding the Lowa boots so I purchased both the Lowa Hunters and the Lowa Tibets from Shoebuy.com.
I am trying them out right now to see which works better for me. Many have praised the Hunters on this forum but not too much has been said about the Tibet GTX--even though the only difference is that they are supposedly the "shorter version" of the well-respected Lowa Hunters.
From just walking around the house in both models, the Tibets appear more comfortable on my feet as well as in the shin area. My analysis of the pros and cons of each is as follows--interested in other opinions on which I should choose--especially from those who have worn the Tibets before.
More high-ankle protection from shale/rocks than Tibet
Can walk thru deeper water without getting feet wet
Less high ankle protection from shale/rocks, etc
Cannot walk thru as deep of water as Hunters and stay dry.
Any other pros/cons I haven't thought about on either model?
I guess since at this point the Tibets feel better as I walk around the house I want to go with them--but am I overlooking a feature that the Hunter has that I will regret later?
