"An all-leather boot still made in Germany! Such a thing is rare these days. We were happy to see these dark brown beauties - even happier when we slipped them on. The all-leather liner is a special touch... instantly comfortable. Beefy alloy lace loops won't rust and a full rubber rand. These boots should last a long time, if cared for." -Vermont Sports

Reviews - LOWA Boots Men's Baffin Pro Hiking Boot
1st pair over 5 years old and still going strong. Can't wear any other boot now. Durable thru snow, mud and hay fields. No other boot measures up. The cost is outweighed by durability and comfort
Lowa Baffin Pro
I recently purchased this boot, and out of all the boots I have tried, this boot has excellent construction and quality materials. The leather lining is definitely plush. Unfortunately, I had to return them as I have a narrow heel, and I just couldn't get the secure fit that you need to have to ward off blisters. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a great backpacking boot to try this boot. If it fits, you can't go wrong. The toe box is more than ample and I have a "D"+ size width. No problems there.
I opted out on this boot because I found the fit of the Tibet to be better. Otherwise it is a great boot. It is high fitting, so it provides a lot of stability. It has a leather lining, which might be a little warm for most in the winter. I like the spacious toe-box, as compared to the narrow Asolo. It is very comfortable around the ankle, and it doesn't close down too tight so that the lace-eyelets touch each other. The fit is typical for me. I usually wear a 10 or 10.5, but for Lowa I always take a 10.5. It is Nubuck, and the high rubber wall is durable for scuffs, etc.
