I have to second the Danner Pronghorn. I have been using them for years and they are a great boot for the price. You can get a better boot if you want to spend 250+ but the Pronghorns are hard to beat. I do use My Meindl Denalis on multiple day trips because of the support they offer under heavy loads but they are by no means light. I have heard good things about the UA Speed Freaks also.
