Great Lightweight Boot
5 5

I have been searching for a mid-range boot. I currently own La Sportiva Makalu and Glaciers and really have liked both of pairs of boots. But I wanted something not so stiff and burly. After trying on numerous Asolo's, Scarpa, Montrail, Merrill's I bought the Salewa in a size 13. I put Superfeet Blue soles in and really like the way this boot feels. I have an extremely narrow foot. With the Superfeet insoles the boot is snug, just right with a pair of lighweight wool socks and liner. The boots I felt were super grippy on wet rocks. I liked how flexible they were with a 50 pound pack bouldering in the Uintah's. My feet never hurt at the end of the day. I did need to air them out at the end of the day, but I have had to do that with my LaSportiva's. I also liked the rubber rand trim that runs on the sides of the boot. That will keep the boots in even better shape over time. Overall I very nicely built boot for backpacking. I think these boots will be a durable long term boot.

Recently took these on a overnighter to MT. Timpanogas and also for a 2 day trip to the Uintahs. These pants were exactly what I was hoping for. Pants seem to breath fairly well, especially when paired with a pair of Under Amour Boxers. We had a bit of rain and the water beaded up right away. Very comfortable and would recommend them for hiking. We had to cross a few boulder fields and the pants held up to brushing up against rocks. I just bought another pair, this time in Black. I am wear an XXL and the bit was perfect. I have owned a few pairs of "hiking pants" and these are the first pair that actually fit me right. The built in belt is an added bonus.
