User Review: Merrell Men's Phaser Peak Waterproof
Price Paid: ? (Gift)
I have done numerous day hikes of 4-10 miles over some pretty rugged terrain with these boots. I haven't taken them backpacking yet but these boots are incredibly comfortable. I have not gotten a blister from wearing these boots yet.
Additionally, the ankle support is the best I have ever had. I have owned Asolo, Vasque and Timberland boots over the years, and none have had anywhere near the ankle support as these boots.
My only negative is that they are slightly heavy and bulky, but I guess that is to be expected considering the excellent support.
