I'm considering buying these for 3 week...
I'm considering buying these for 3 week backpacking in Patagonia's spring/early summer. How do they do with a heavy pack - 60 to 80 pounds? Would Lowa's Mountain Expert GTX be better for the heavy load?
The Lowas are both great boots. For this kind of load and terrain, you may also want to consider the Salewa Raven Combi GTX(beefier) or Rapace GTX.
