Gave as a gift but have feedback
4 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these boots primarily for backpacking and was intentionally looking for a somewhat stiffer boot than the ones I use for day hiking (which are the Salewa Alp Trainer Mid GTX boot). I tend to like softer soled boots because I like being able to feel the trail and bend my feet more. However, the Salewas were just too soft to wear while carrying the weight of a pack, so I knew I needed something stiffer and more burly. Although most reviews I’ve read about Scarpa say that they are a good brand for narrow feet, I have to disagree. My feet are slightly on the narrower side and certainly lower volume overall than the average feet and I find Scarpas to be bordering on too wide in the toe box. This doesn’t bother me too much as I know my feet will swell under the weight of a pack, the elevation, and miles trekked while backpacking, not to mention they will soften a tiny bit due to the suede outer and will then be able to be tightened a bit more. Straight out of the box they are super stiff and very hard to tighten without getting rope burn from the laces, and I’m a climber! But this tells me they are well-made and durable. They do have some bend in the foot as they do not have a shank like the mountaineering Zodiac *Tech* GTX boot. I like the locking hooks and the slightly asymmetric lacing down to the beginning of the toes, although I would say if you’re looking for to-the-toe lacing for that perfect fit the Salewas I mentioned before are better in that aspect; those laces basically go to the end of the boots and over the big toe.

I change out the insoles in all my boots for Ortholites so I can’t speak to the qualities of the standard insoles Scarpa offers here. Hoping the “Sock Fit” technology is as cool as it sounds, time will tell. I doubt I’ll ever wear these on a day hike/without a heavy pack as they’ll be too stiff for my liking and I don’t like saying it, but I do envision some hot spots/blisters as I break these guys in.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love my Salomon Trail Runners! Mine are from 2015, so they are not this current model, but they are the previous model to this! They are comfortable and the traction is awesome! I am new to trail running and they made my new experience, that much more enjoyable! (I bought a size 9, when I normally wear a 8.5)

Fit: True to size
Height: 2' 3"
Weight: 25 lbs

I bought this fleece for my toddler/son to wear around the house or to use as layering when going out and it is cold. It is soft, and comfortable and easy to put on and off him (which is a must for a wiggly little boy).

I wish I LOVED my Hydroflask, but unfortunately, I only LIKE it since they always get so dented up. I am able to rough up and drop my Nalgene and it is still in great shape, yet I drop my hydroflask from one for above the ground and now it is all dented up. It is still a great bottle, and serves it's purpose, but wish the metal was a little more durable.
