Elk NetworkGear 101 – Danner Mountain 600

Gear 101 | July 14, 2020

A lot of hunters would like to spend the entire fall chasing elk in the high country. But that’s just not a reality for many of us. Maybe we’ll get a week or a couple weekends. And thanks to our friends at Danner, there’s a boot for us weekend warriors. 

The Danner Mountain 600 is a boot that weighs, feels and fits like a gym shoe. The Vibram SPE midsole delivers the comfort and cushioning of a running shoe while the Vibram outsole gives you contoured traction that flexes with the terrain underfoot, be it a scree slope or rocky trail. Vibram’s mega-grip rubber technology gives you the traction of a snow tire on wet and slushy terrain.

But unlike a running shoe, the Mountain 600 is going to keep you dry. Made with lighter weight leather and minimal seams, plus being lined with Danner Dry, the Mountain 600 is obviously made by a company based out of the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. 

At four and a half inches high, D-ring laces and a shock cord to hold the laces down, these boots have the look of a traditional hunting boot, but don’t require a six-month break-in period.

With around a dozen styles, Danner’s Mountain 600 is worth a test drive at your weekend elk honey hole.
