Overall Score
Gender-specific fit; grippy soles
Not ideal for serious winter walking

This new Hillmaster model features an improved men’s specific fit (a women’s specific fit is also available) and as is customary with these well-established boots they’re pretty much comfy straight out of the box.

Similar to the Anatom Q3 in both appearance and intended use, the Hillmaster utilises lovely 2.2 – 2.4mm full grain leather uppers combined with a memory foam collar and tongue and a Gore-Tex lining.  The cuffs are quite low but give adequate support and your heels feel well locked in place.

A ten-point series of improvements/redesigns has among other things seen the incorporation of a new, grippy, well-cushioned and quite aggressively lugged outsole which should see out several seasons of hard use; that said, and as with the Q3, this is not a boot for serious winter days in the mountains, but if you’re more about hill and valley walking then they’re worth checking out.
