User Review: Hi-Tec Men's Sierra V-Lite
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Bought at retail (about $100)
I purchased a pair 9 years ago, and had worn it extensively for multi-days trekking in the Indian and Nepal Himalaya. It is still waterproof until the sole came off 2 years ago. It fits very well and comfortably. Great for trekking and short walks.
- Fits well
- Retain waterproof
- Sole weakened by long walk over rough rock and gravel
Nine years ago, I tried a number of brands and then settled on Sierra V-Lite. Key reasons are: it fits my feet very comfortably, and come across sturdy. This was my 1st Hi-Tec.
Over the years, I had worn it extensively for numerous multi-days trekking in the Indian and Nepal Himalaya. It was waterproof, held my ankle, requires minimal maintenance. Those treks were rocky, but the synthetic body hardly wore off — it was durable. The outsole is a bit soft for my rocky treks though.
The sole came off 2 years ago during one of my treks (!) — the threads that hold the outsole unraveled. I had to let go — I really like it. I have my 2nd pair of Hi-Tec now.
