How does the Kailash Lite compare to the Kailash Trek?
The Kailash Lite has the same chassis as Kailash Trek GTX, but the Lite does not have GoreTex uppers. Instead, it has more fabric, less leather, and has fewer metal lacing eyelets (only the top 3 on the Lite are metal). So it's lighter. Otherwise the boots are identical and offer the same level of support and comfort. The Lite is simply lighter and breathes better.
