|XPG Hikers 2.0|
I've ended up being very happy with the XPG hikers. They've got plenty of miles still in them. But I was always a little sad to have not taken a chance on the Extroverts, if for no other reason than that I really liked the look of them. However, I went on a whim to the Danner site yesterday and realized that they're gone! They're no longer listed. I did a search for them, and found that you can still order them (in low stock circumstances) from a handful of retailers, but they're obviously essentially just exhausting inventory. Sad.
Interestingly, the Cabela's XPG hikers that I got are now on sale at a rate reduced even below what I paid for them: $84. Stock seems to be drying up on that too. I noticed that they were being replaced with an XPG Mid-hiker 2.0 (actually its name) that looks similar, although comes in just a little heavier.
|4MOST DRY-PLUS Hikers|
So although the brand changed slightly, you can actually get exactly the same boots that I have. Or, you can get the new and (presumably improved) XPGs.
By odd coincidence, the brown/gold color of the new 4MOST hikers kinda look a little like the old Danner Extroverts. If it were brown/orange, they would look even more like them. It's nice to know that when I want to replace my existing pair, I can basically get the same thing again, even if the waterproof lining is a different brand.
