Lowa Vajolet GTX Mountaineering Boot
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.
I asked the opposite question on the Scarpa...
I asked the opposite question on the Scarpa Charmoz GTX page, but I'm wondering how this boot compares (fit-wise) to the Charmoz? Which has a roomier toe box, etc? Thanks!
well the lowa has a reputation for fitting narrower feet and scarpa usually fits wider feet, and both boots have good arch support.
