The Mountain Pass was created to be a lighter weight and more versatile hiking boot that still reflects classic Danner styling. Built with light hikes and city streets in mind, the overall design is inspired by the original Mountain Light with an updated construction method that integrates the shank, midsole and lasting board into a single piece. This new, unified platform, combined with a low profile Vibram outsole, allowed us to significantly reduce weight and create an out-of-the-box comfort that doesn't come standard with most classic hiking boots.
Fits more true to size than other danners. Had to go up 1/2 size over my danner lights. Boot feels amazing out of the box. Almost no break in. Looks sharp. Great tread. Good boot for city or mountain wear. Wish it was waterproof.
