User Review: Keen Men's Oregon PCT
Use: Rough Trail - 40lb pack.
Break-in Period: NO break in period
Price Paid: $160
Drove from Canada to New Hampshire to hike Mt. Lafayette Oct 23. Forgot my boots at home. Told the gentleman from EMS I needed waterproof boots with good support, and NO break-in period since I'd have 'em on the mountain within 12 hours.
He suggested these, I bought 'em, and wore them for 7.5 hours, up and down 5000 vertical feet, in water and 10 degree weather.
Bottom line: Completely watertight, amazing non-slip sole (Keen proprietary), GREAT support, and most importantly NO break-in time required. Not a single blister....not even a chaffe.
And for $160 - AMAZING value!! Don't know yet how well they'll hold up, but sure am grateful for the quality and fit right out of the box!!!
