Review by: Lita Collins ⋅ June 24, 2012  
We have not completed a full review on this boot but we have completed a full review of the Men's Merrell Moab Ventilator which is very similar. Both boots use the same materials but differ in styling details. The Men's version won our Best Buy award because it performed very well for a great price. We recommend checking out the Men's review and also checking out our full Hiking Boots - Women's Review where we put 10+ boots in tests in Yosemite, the Southwest Desert and Eastern Sierra.

The Ventilator gets its name from the large mesh panels that ventilate your foot. This both lets your foot breathe on hot days and lets the boot dry very quickly. On the flip side, this let the books get wet fast. Walk across a stream or wet field and your feet are soaked. The mesh panels also mean this boot is one of the lightest we tested. It makes hiking up steep hills as effortless as it can be but also means you have to be careful when walking through brush. This is not to be confused with a burly protective hiking boot.
