What a great boot!!
5 5

Coming from a full leather Vasque Summit GTX i cant say enough about the kailish. Obviously its going to have the Scarpa quality the world has come to know, but i would have never thought they would be so comfy. I would say they compare to asolo in quality. They broke in very easily, really just took one hike up chimney tops in gsmnp to break them in. We did eatern half of AT in GSMNP and mt leconte in the snow and ice and my feet stayed dry and mostly warm other than sitting around shelter at night. The boots worked great with katoohla microspikes. This is a picture at icewater springs shelter with the microspikes on. Overall awesome boot and will diffidently buy another pair when these bite the dust.

Outstanding tent

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got caught in crazy storm camping just under the treeline on big bald. winds were a howlin and the skies were falling. To be honest i was waiting for a tree to come crashing down on me. However the tent stood there like a sherman tank and never budged. I never got wet at all. However my buddy was in an inferior tent and was taking a bath rather than sleeping. At least he didnt stink the next day!

Bought a week before a trip to the smokies and broke them in on chimney tops trail. Next day we started a hike from Fontana to hot springs on the AT in the snow and ice. The boots did great. Feet stayed dry and warm and they worked very good with the kathoola microspikes. This is my first pair of synthetic and at this point I will never switch back to leather. Plus scarpa boots are high quality.
