Zamberlan, the Italian boot company, is looking for a couple of through-hikers to sponsor on the AT this season. We just received the 2013 Backpacker Magazine Editors' Choice for the Crosser speed hiking boot, and we'd love to get some awesome testimonials on the Zamberlan Outdoors Facebook page from folks getting the most out of the boot on the AT. These speed hiking boots are going to be available in stores including REI late March, but we can get a few testers suited up now.

Check out the boots here:

The new Crosser collection of low-cut and mid-cut Speed Hikers are designed to be very lightweight, yet supremely supportive. Backpacker Magazine testers say that the new Crosser boots "strike the best balance of weight savings, ankle support, and heavy-duty load worthiness". See the article now in the March 2013 issue of Backpacker Magazine!
