My wife bought these one month before our trip after her pair of 10 year old Vasques blew out. We thought the softer leather would break in quicker. She loved them and with some gore-tex gaiters they kept out all the scree, dust, and mud the mountain could throw at us. She was warm on the summit at 0 degrees (f). I bought the sturdier all leather vasques 8 months before our climb and I think they were just getting broken in by the time of the trip.

We bought the small and medium models. I really appreciated the light weight at 19,000 ft. The included pack cover comes in handy in the forest. The hydration pack pocket fits a 3 liter bladder. No problems with workmanship. The belt, chest and belt clips look flimsy but they've stood up for 9 months, now. The external cords and gear loop were handy for stowing trekking poles on gentle pitches. The cords also compress the pack when carrying smaller loads for day hikes in the Shenandoah and overnights on the AT. Drawback - single main chamber makes packing strategic.
