Farmer Review: Scarpa Ranger GTX


Reviewed by Ernie Hopkins

These are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever had.  No need to ‘wear them in’.

I put them to work straight away while fertilizing the ground on my farm – they have been subjected to lime, nitrofosca and urea.  These are so comfortable that I’ve worn them instead of gumboots and, despite working with petrol, diesel, grease and thinners, they have remained unscathed.

On a leisure side these boots have been on winter hiking/hunting trips to the rugged, rocky & muddy terrain of Stewart Island & Fiordland.

Also, in the heat I wore these boots on a 5 mile hike across the lava fields in Hawaii. 

I’ve also worn them for general protection when digging & spraying in the pumice soil of Taupo.

They have been put through the waterproof test many times due to our unpredictable weather.

Overall, I love these boots and would recommend them as a comfortable, durable boot.
