Zodiac Tech GTX
Perfect for those situations when an approach shoe isn’t enough and a full-on mountain boot is too much, the Zodiac Tech GTX fuses a technically precise fit with a durable, weatherproof design that handles everything from the massive approach to the summit snow slopes.

I opted to post a First Look review of the Zodiac Tech’s as the summer season abruptly ended before a sufficient number of testing days achieved. That being said I still managed to get the boots out for 6 days in the Bugaboos, 11 days climbing around the Coast Range and 5 days in the Canadian Rockies. This included some alpine rock routes to 5.9. Lots of chossy scrambling. A bunch of glacier travel. And of course some easy alpine snow and ice climbing. Enough to get a good feel for performance but not enough to really evaluate durability and longevity. That being said, some conclusions can be extrapolated through wear patterns (educated guesses).
