Capra Bolt Mid (Waterproof) Ladies Hiking Boot Review

These boots are my first pair of hiking boots, prior to this I was just wearing a pair of running shoes. I searched long and hard to find a pair that fit my feet, finally finding these guys. The boots were an affordable price from Cabela's and seemed pretty comfortable. Here are some pros and cons for the boots.

  • Extremely comfortable. There was no break in time, I put on the boots and was ready to go.
  • Light weight.
  • Waterproof? Well they were at least water resistant until the seems started to come apart. Now they still seem fairly water resistant. I defiantly wouldn't say waterproof though.
  • Reasonably affordable
  • Fit is true to size.
  • Durability, or lack there of. They only lasted me one season of moderate hiking before the seems started to come apart on them.
  • They are more like a trail runner than an actual boot so they ankle support doesn't do much besides protect from scratches or bruises.
  • I am not certain of them actually being 100% waterproof.

I used the boots for mostly day hikes, I was pretty disappointed when they started to wear out. I think I will get at least one more season out of them but they are no longer waterproof. Based on comfort they are great! but based on the durability I think I would invest in another pair of boots.
