Gear Review

Seems good, so far

The shoes are great looking, sturdy feeling; there's a bit of heft in them (not overly heavy). They are comfortable, although I haven't taken them out on a serious hike yet, so I can't discuss performance under stress/heat yet. (still winter and using winter hiking boots).
That being said, they are a bit "high volume" (seem a bit roomy all around) -- I have to crank down the laces and the edges are close to touching. May need to get a smaller size, that I see on patagonia store but backcountry.com doesn't seem to offer. . .
