User Review: Salomon Authentic 6
Use: Day hikes/backpacking
Break-in Period: None
Price Paid: $200 can
I climbed all the NH 4000 footers in one pair of Authentic 6 during a period of 14 months. These boots are great out of the box! Too bad they don't make the blue/gray model anymore...
I used Nikwax regularly and they stayed quite waterproof. One of the boots unfortunately died when I attempted a long section of the Long Trail in late october 1997 in 15 inches of new snow. It "melted" by our campfire at Shootin Star shelter!
