The Hell & Back Hike Pro makes all-mountain travel easier with a Triax ultra light polymer shell—which lightens the load by 25 percent—and a quick-release cuff system for hiking or skinning. Nordica’s notable performance features include a lateral-focused, three-buckle shell design with a 45-degree closure system designed to lock in the heel and take pressure off of the forefoot. The Hell and Back has a high-traction rubber toe and Dual Density shock eraser to boot.
