Winter is just around the corner, and to cope with the coldest time of the hunting season, we tested the new Rondane boot designed by Zamberlan for the mountains and cold weather. Modern Design and high visibility inserts make this boots instantly recognizable. Available in two versions, Orange/Black and Black/Grey, thanks to the quick and adjustable lacing system they are specially made hunters who seek highly technical, durable and practical footwear in use.
The fast BOA System allows a stable and always adjustable fit. In a matter of seconds, and even in severe cold weather conditions with hands covered by gloves, this system allows the boots to be laced and unlaced with a simple click by pressing or turning the dial that adjusts the steel lacing. Two adjustment dials are placed on the instep and at ankle height respectively to allow the hunter to choose a more snug or comfortable fit at different stages of the walk. The waterproof synthetic fiber upper provides great resistance to rubbing. The protective rubber rand covers the boots all-around, offering an additional protective barrier against bumps and scrapes in rocky terrain or dense undergrowth.
The boot's solid construction and GoreTex lining make the Rondane a boot suitable for the mountains and cold temperatures. The Vibram outsole and tread guarantee grip and stability. The dual density midsole increases comfort during hours of walking. The weight of the new Zamberlan Rondane with the features just described is to be considered standard for a winter boot, about 815 grams. The boots are available in sizes 40 to 48 in the two different color combinations. We have tested the Rondane both in walking hunts and in the long waits of selective hunting, and as for thermoregulation, stability, but also relative stiffness, we feel we can recommend it especially to those who often spend many hours in the mountains or in driven hunts exposed to the cold, waiting for the good chance. With these boots, hunters can rest assured that they will keep their feet warm and dry, which in hunting is synonymous with well-being and concentration, essential to be ready at the decisive moment.
