Waterproof test

Waterproof test

Sloshed around in a shallow creek for almost a minute. No water came in through the tongue and water beaded off the moment I was out.

First impressions have been great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Have only had these for a few weeks now. I recently returned my old Asolo Fugitives that I picked up at REI for a full refund that went straight to these Khumbu's on sale and I am stoked on the upgrade. I absolutely loved my Fugitives, and the Khumbu's seem to be even better. I returned the Fugitives as the outer seam was coming apart on both boots after 3 years. I'm hoping with the different stitch pattern on the Khumbu this won't be an issue again.

So far I've just been breaking them in on a few short hikes and around town. There has been no discomfort breaking them in. They have more cushion than my Fugitives did, the full Vibram sole is fantastic, and they have passed initial waterproof testing (see picture above).

I can't say too much more about them yet as I haven't given them a serious trial. Once I feel like I've put them through the wringer I'll write a more detailed review, but my first impressions are that these boots are about as good as it gets!

I love these boot right out of the box I took them on a 3 day backpack trip that was super technical. They did amazing I can never say enough good things about Asolo boot. This is my second pair of Asolo backpacking boots. If you have never owned a pair of Asolo boot you are really missing out.

Totally agree. All Asolo products are purpose built. I have three different pair.

I was in the market for a new all round hiking boot to use for long treks and approach portion's of my climbs. I have used other top brands and decided to give these Asolo's a try...........WOW glad I did.
I used them for a training hike on Camelback in AZ and they felt fantastic right to of the box and still feel great today. Looking forward to using them on Kilimanjaro in December.
Thanks to the GREAT STAFF at Backcountry, you guys and gals ROCK!!!!

I am considering the khumbu gv. I have been using Meindl Alaskan hunter for many years. They are a very stiff soled boot. I will be using for back pack hunting. Do you think these can handle 120lbs loads for 12mi days?

Thank you, Dan

Fits Like A Glove!

After wearing these to work for about a week I made a bold move and laced them up for a 34 mile weekend. These boots did not disappoint. Kept my feet nice and dry as we hiked down to Union Falls (18 miles round trip in Yellowstone National Park), which was extremely swampy at the bottom. The boot stays tight, I never had to stop and re-tie them. The soles grip anything and the anti-shock mid-sole is a definite savior after miles down the trail. Going down the 7 mile hole trail in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, which is steep and loose gravel, I had sure footing the whole way in . This is my 3rd pair of Asolo boots and again they have impressed me.

Exactly what I was looking for

Ordered the La Sportiva Pamir with these to pick one.

These arent nearly as rigid, much narrower, much more nimble.

Exactly what I was looking for. Great fit.
