Anatom - Q3 Braeriach
All I want is a lightweight boot that gives me full support….Good luck!
A lot of people want a pair of bushwalking boots that give them full support but don’t weigh a ton! It’s always been a case of making sacrifices of either a full support boot that is heavy or something lightweight that runs the risk of you straining muscles or worst still, damaging your ankles. If you are like me and enjoy both long multiday and short day bushwalks, then you have the situation where you need either two types of boots or you put up with an unnecessarily heavy full support boot for your shorter hikes. How about a full grain leather boot that offers full support, but weighs in at over 200gms less than your standard leather boot?
Anatom has released a full grain leather boot in Australia that only weighs 610gms (size 42 half pair)! It’s called the Q3 Braeriach (please don’t ask me the say this name!). It is lightweight, has a Vibram composite sole that gives you great cushioning and they have added a rubber rand across the toe for protection and super soft calf leather lines the inside of the boot’s upper for added comfort.
Wait, there’s more! This boot is also waterproof & breathable, so used with the right sock combination, these babies can be used in any environment.
So whether you are doing a quick day walk through Lamington NP or embracing the environment of the South Coast track in Tassie, this is a boot that will handle it all. The only challenge you will have is trying to get your tongue around the name! :)
