Patagonia Wins Outside 's Gear of the Year for Multi-Sport Shoe

May 10, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

I don’t know about you, but I’m forever on the hunt for the perfect light-weight hiking shoe that carries me up into the tiny watersheds of nearby mountains and doubles as a wading shoe. That means it’s got to be super-breathable and have a “toothy” sole. Throw a line in any direction today and you’re likely to hit a pair of “light-weight hikers,” so that’s why Outside‘s stamp of approval for Patagonia‘s Drifter A/C in their Spring/Summer Buyer’s Guide may be worth a blueliner’s attention.
“The Drifter A/C is a breathable, durable multi-sport shoe and the air conditioned sibling of the popular Drifter GORE-TEX® that was born with the launch of Patagonia Footwear.”
