User Review: Atlas 8 Series
Price Paid: $130
I bought these shoes 8 years ago, but have probably used them a total of 25 times for 2-3 hour hikes on moderately steep terrain. The screws holding the binding blew out recently and the decking material ripped on that same shoe.
At times they were used on somewhat icy snow-covered roads that may have worn the screws. The decking material seems a bit thin. My husband's is covered with duct tape where the material wraps around the aluminum to add an extra layer where it has started to wear through.
I love the binding system. It is easy to use and secure. I have hiked with others whose bindings on other brands were always coming loose.
