User Review: Galibier Super Guide
Break-in Period: First trip in the Wind Rivers I got them soaked and wore 'em 'til dry. Guess a week +
Weight: I doubt I have ever weighed them...heavier than any other boot I have but worth the weight.
In reading the reviews of the Super Guides I wanted to add my own experience. I bought mine in Lander, Wyoming, in '74 and have used them all through the Wind River Range, Alaska, Cascades, New Zealand, Antarctica, Svalbard, Italy...on and on. I often get asked why I still wear these old boots and feel if someone has to ask they won't understand the answer.
They have been resoled 4 times and liners replaced once. I've tried many other boots over the years and nothing has held up to the SG's. For the money spent for the miles on their soles...they were the best buy I probably ever made on a piece of gear.
My feet always feel happy slipping back into these boots. How many other boots or any piece of gear is still working hard for 35 years?
