NvHiker's Bio

Hiker, Rock Climber, Ice Climber, Winter Mountainering.

Love to get started very early in the morning for hikes. I'll hike in any weather. From white out conditions to desert heat. Hike very remote canyons.

I'm a gear nut!!

Like car camping at campgrounds or drive into remote areas.

Nice accessory to take on an over-nite backpack if you don't mind a little weight. Pretty strong too. I put some duct tape at the ends of the legs to protect the tent floor when using inside the tent, mine were a little sharp. The rods get easier to install with more usage. I also have the smaller version.

I too, found my right boot leaked and a lot more than than the left. During a rare down pour here in southern NV., I was five miles from camp with hail and rain, by the time I got back, my right foot was pretty wet and the left boot was letting in some water. I ended up spraying the heck out of them with Nikwax. I have a pair of Vasque Breeze's that have never let water in.

Second, the boots don't breathe very well, kind of hot for desert hiking.

The Good News:
Break-in took no time at all, large toe box doesn't crush your toes. Excellent support and light weight.

I'll still use them, but not in the rain.
