    I have a couple pairs of Zephyrs as well. I have only tried on the Renegades at REI, they were nice but my cousin ended up buying the last pair they had. I ordered another pair of Zephyrs from Amazon instead.

    Angel's Landing is really nice. I hiked it once in the Summer a few years ago, and liked it so much I decided to stop by Zion on my way to Utah just to hike Angels Landing again. This time was in the winter though, and it was so slippery that we didn't get to make it to the very end. We got about half way through the last segment with the chains (that are bolted to the cliff sides) and drop offs. Our fault, since we didn't have chains.

    That segment of switchbacks was a ***** with no chains. I think everyone in the group ate it pretty hard at least twice on that ice.

    Nice video..That trail looks nuts! Beautiful, but I wouldn't be comfortable with that much exposure. Not a big fan of heights as it turns out.

    I haven't tried Renegades, but I'm on my 3rd pair of Zephyr GTXs. They're excellent boots. I wear them all day every day and they've been pretty bomb-proof.
    When these wear out, I'll almost certainly get a 4th pair.

    Excellent review. What I want to know is who makes that hat you are wearing. Really like the look of it

    Hi Broko, thanks brother! The hat is from Outback Trading Company, it's called the Grizzly model. It's really nice, well made good materials.
    I make non-monetized videos and share them on YouTube.

    I have a pair of Lowa Tempest low-cut for non-weight bearing hiking. They have taken a beating and are still good to go. I had their predecessor, on which the soles delaminated. I shipped them to Lowa and they send me a box of the new Tempest. They did right by me.

    I swear by Lowa's. They are just tops. My brother is an Interagency Hotshot (forest fire fighter) and he swears by Meindl's. He switched to them from Lowa because of of Cabela's replacement policy on the Meindls, as those firefighters are hell on boots.

    I am constantly recommending these boots to people who complain about whatever boot they are usually buying. Those I manage to convince are all hooked.
