User Review: Asolo Men's Fugitive GTX
Use: Dayhikes, moderate backpacking trips
Break-in Period: Barely any. Wore them to work a couple times.
Price Paid: Don't remember
Just got back from four days and three nights on the Northville-Placid Trail with these babies. It rained the first day so the trail was generally wet and muddy, with a few stream/brook/vlei crossings. They didn't leak a drop. And the previous poster was correct, if they get submerged (mine did), they dry very quickly when worn.
Additionally, they support my 40 pound load very comfortably. I did not have one single hot spot or blister with these boots. Although they are classified as light hikers by some places, they can surely be used for moderate week long backpacking trips, which is what I was hoping for. I wanted a boot that I could throw on for a day hike yet wouldn't let me down for a somewhat extended excursion with a heavier load. And these fullfill both perfectly.
They must have worked out the hot spot problem that other users have posted. So if you are looking for a good all round boot for multi tasking, these are for you.
