Walked/hiked serious mountain and canyon trails with some bushwacking involved. All in and around the Tetons. All day long carrying fly fishing gear and packs into and out of remote areas hopping boulders, stream and river crossings and serious up and down in rocky terrain. Ten hour plus days on many occasions. Still look like new. Muck and water proof but also an accidental knee high river crossing.
The results: Contragrip is awesome, comfort was good and great after the first day, the orange color gets mixed reviews from others but looks a lot better than you would think. The durability has exceeded expectations for such a light weight. I mean I punish these especially on the descents into fishing areas and they are still like new after 40+ hours of use. They dry quick. If you are a person who Salomon fits perfect like me. You can't go wrong with this boot. It has exceeded my expectations. I love 'em!
