Why We Like The Quest Element GTX Hiking Boot

With the featherweight construction of a running shoe and the rugged stabilization of a hiking boot, the Quest Element GTX gets us further faster. The taller shaft and leather build barrel through rock and brush, while the patented chassis technology keeps our ankles tracking as if we were sauntering along smooth, solid ground. Armored with an airy GORE-TEX membrane, this pair stops water and sweat from soaking our socks through as we cross creeks and huff up steeps.

Truly waterproof

Wore these on a three day camping trip, two of which it rained. My feet stayed warm and dry the entire time. I only took them off to sleep. They are very comfortable and don’t seem to need breaking in like most leather boots.

Lower quality than before

I loved the Quest 4d 3 GTX. Every single thing that was changed from those to these was a mistake, down to the lace hooks and the color. That piece of leather in the middle, am I hiking or climbing trees? You have to take the laces out of the upper eyes to get the boots on, then relace them. Not something I want to deal with every morning. I don't want to have to sit down for 3 minutes and mess with my boots on my way out the door. I shouldn't have to sit to put my boots on. Bring back the Quest 4d 3 GTX, until then I'll be buying my boots elsewhere.

Very Comfortable

This is a comfortable boot that required no break in. It felt durable and seemed well made. Although it's the size of a boot, it wore like a tennis shoe, and felt very light on my feet. I had the chance to compare this to the Quest 4. The Element is noticeably more flexible and soft. Although they are near the same weight, the Element felt lighter. The inside sizing was the same - my foot didn't notice a fitment difference, but the Element seemed larger on the outside, a little less 'streamlined.' The Quest 4 seemed a little more tough or rugged, but also less comfortable out of the box. Overall, I like the Element more for my intended use.

Comfortable boot out of the box but a little soft

I have been using Solomon hiking boots for long day hikes in backpacking for over 10 years. It was time for a new pair, and I decided to try these. They were comfortable right out of the box, but upon putting them on, I realize that they were a little soft for me in terms of the support around the ankles. I returned them and bought the Forces version, which was much more supportive and just seems better made.

comfort and durability

I've worked in these for one year and i have nothing but good things to say. There as comfortable as they were on day 1. My job is demanding and its rough on footwear, The boots are holding together well although I'm getting a little wear on the tread but that's to be expected after a year and being worn on a daily basis. I also want to compliment the laces. This is my 4th pair and the laces have held up on all of them. Very happy with this brand.
