Kaipo CS WP

rated 3 of 5 stars For warm winter days. Choose 1/2 size bigger. Nice and light boots with a shoe-like fit. I wear them when I go snowshoeing. A little bit too narrow for my feet. Still a nice little boot. Full review

Quest 4D 2 GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Reviews on boots are like reviews on pizza. Lots of different flavors with everyone having a favorite. The Quest 4D 2's are my favorite pizza. I only have about 140 miles on the Quest 4D 2's but with about 80 of them coming last week on a solo in the Eastern Sierras (go there....backpack there) I've been able to form a pretty strong opinion. A pretty basic one too. Best I've ever worn and I'm stoked to have found my way to them. I lean towards midweight hikers that are made for backpacking but work… Full review

X Ultra 2 GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars Good waterproof walking shoe for all round light backpacking. Fit: If you are used to Salomon fitting this is consistent with the rest of their sizing. It has a larger internal volume than their trail runners, similar length, and is a little wider than the XA Pro 3D. The heel cup is not as narrow as their trail runners.  For non-Salomon users they tend to run narrow but the length is consistent with other brands. I have a medium width foot and I find some Salomon trail runners too narrow, but this… Full review

X Ultra Prime

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight trail runner style shoe. Super grippy. Comfy right out of the box! In my quest for the perfect shoes, I tried these. From the start I really liked them. I kind of felt like I never wanted to take them off!   They feel wonderful right out of the box. The insoles are soft and comfortable but provide no support. I did swap them out for Superfeet insoles right away. I don't feel that they provide adequate arch support on their own. On my first hike, they felt really good. I had good traction… Full review

X Ultra 2 GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The best compromise when the situation calls for more ankle coverage or over ankle Gore-tex protection, but you don't want to put on boots that weigh as much as your pack. Fit: I usually wear a 9.5, but wear a 10 in these. If you're going to put some hours into these, expect to size up 1/2 a size for foot swell. Comfort: Zero break-in. No blisters. Has movement at times when not cranked down, but still no hot spots. Support: I wore heavy boots for years, and don't buy into ankle support on hiking… Full review
