Austrian boot brand arrives in NZ

Dachstein's Torstein GTX

Austrian boot brand Dachstein is now available in New Zealand, distributed through Outfitters.

Established in 1925, Dachstein claims to combine “urban style with alpine functionality” and produces a range of tramping boots.

One of the most recent releases is a new three-four season boot. Produced in Europe, the Dachstein Torstein GTX Graphite ($499.95) is an extra-stable backpacking boot, with a higher-cut shaft for a firm fit on uneven terrain. Dachstein says it is suitable for tramping through tough terrain with a heavy load.

The boot is light for a three-four season model, weighing in at 1380g. The boot also has a waterproof/breathable Gore-Tex membrane.
