I learned from one of you recently that the Hanwag Mountain Light GTX boots are no longer available. UGH! I checked it out myself and while they are still on the website they are indeed sold out with no more coming in. Double UHG! It was a unique boot, one of the very best out of the hundreds that I tested, and tied as my favorites.
The Mountain Light GTX has not been in the main Hanwag product offering for quite some time but it was brought in by a US company and sold well since 2006. I recommended this boot and them until two years ago when they pissed me off. See that is a good thing about not doing this for money, I don’t have to kiss your ass and be nice. I can just move on. I will not name the company because they don’t deserve the free advertising from me but it wouldn’t be hard to find out who it is. Sure would have been nice to get a heads up so their customers could buy another pair if they wanted to.
You should know that they are not the only people that sell Hanwag and other high quality boots in this country. I recommend that you go directly to Lowa. You will be very happy.
Anyway, I have told you many times and it was one of the only good pieces of advice my father ever gave me. If you really like a piece of gear, buy extra because sure as shootin they will stop making them or screw them up somehow. And once again they did. Damn. I only have one extra pair.
