Inov-8's Roclite 325 is an ultralight hiking boot offering good support and protection, available in a waterproof Gore-tex version (Roclite 325 GTX) or a super breathable non-Goretex version (Roclite 325).
Hike and run fast with confidence with this lightweight men's boot. The ROCLITE 325 delivers the ultimate in comfort, protection and increased ankle support when running over multi terrains. Perfect for fast-packing a cross between backpacking and mountain running - where users can utilize the ROCLITE 325's versatile grip.
Inov8's Roclite 325 replace the Roclite 286's and come in both Gore-tex (waterproof) and Non-Gore-tex (not waterproof) versions. Considering the 286's were a fast hiking classic we were keen to get our hands on the 325's to see how they compared. Firstly they are a bit heavier but Inov-8 have made several improvements that we think are worth the extra weight - the toe section has been improved offering more protection from a stiffer bumper and the sole has been completely replaced with a slightly thicker and more protective unit. The padding around the ankle has been beefed up as well.
We like the improvements and the boot feels a bit more substantial than its predecessor - it offers more protection with little additional weight and at just over 300grams per boot it has to be on your radar if you're looking for a 3 season boot that's comfortable and won't hold you back.
