Synapse

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Pretty good day hiking shoe that is easy to get on and off. They don't lace down as securely as regular laces and the last is pretty bendy. Not the best for rough terrain. Great for maintained trails though. I got these last fall and overall I've been happy with them. The quick lacing is definitely convenient and makes them easy to put on and slip off but doesn't snug down as secure as standard laces. They were comfy from day one and breathe pretty well while not letting much dust filter in. Insole… Full review

Quest 4D 2 GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars A fine boot, although a bit soft (especially for my liking). Bought this pair as a replacement for my leather boots that I’ve been using for years. This is my first pair of boots with Gore-Tex that I have tried and I can say right now that I don’t like it. They get much too moist on the inside compared to regular leather boots and I have the feeling that they dry out much slower than non-waterproof hiking boots. I might still use them for hikes that I know will get wet, but I’ve never really… Full review

Quest 4D GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars With hiking boots it's truly a case of to each his/her own. In my case these Salomons are heaven-sent. Comfortable and supportive and minimal durability issues. I'm in my 60s and my ankles feel like they are in their 80s. Both have been sprained, twisted, and turned more times than I can count. I can — and have — turned them badly on cracks in the sidewalk. In the 4+ years I've worn the Salomon Quest 4Ds I have not experienced a single major ankle incident, which is little short of amazing given… Full review

Park Hydro Handset

rated 4 of 5 stars I use this handset for trail runs. It does take some time to adjust the fit and grip, but works well after that. I've been using it for about 3 months with no visible wear. Overall, I'm very happy with the product. I use this handset for trail runs/hikes. It allows for adjustment for the length of the hand and width of the wrist. It does take some time to adjust the fit and grip, but works well after that. I can see where people with small hands may feel as if the bottle is unbalanced. (I'm female/5'7")… Full review

Quest 4D GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a very good boot for day hiking and/or backpacking up to 30 to 40 pounds. There are a few problems, but I have a work-around that should help everyone. As a solo hiker I love the freedom to hike were I want as long as I want. The disadvantage is a larger group can help you make more informed purchases and not spend countless hours or hikes with equipment failure. I read the reviews and went to Adventure 16 and REI to try these boots. They fit perfect. They are light and the lace system is… Full review
