Summary

Can't buy a better all-around outdoor boot!

Pros

  • Temperature control
  • Comfort
  • Weight
  • Lacing system is superior

Cons

  • None

Bought my pair in Germany at a Salomon outlet. Hiked the Bavarian Alps and back home the White Mountains in these boots. Absolutely the best boot I've ever owned.

Great temperature/sweat control (for me), VERY comfortable...I'll never buy another brand/style again so long as they keep making this one!

Summary

I've had a pair of Quest and Cosmic boots from Salomon in the last 4 years, both boots have what I'm looking for. Roomy toe box, true to size, narrow heel pocket and good flexibility for trail and off trail hiking.

Pros

  • Out of box comfort
  • Roomy

Cons

  • Would need a desert boot for cactus country

Hands down best midweight hiker, backpacker boots they've owned. I've owned stiffer, heavier, pricier boots but I would take these over all takers from best brands out there.

Again they fit a narrow heel with a roomier toe box, the lacing is great and holds foot in place. Comfort is straight out of the box, no pressure points, handles snow, rain, mud, never leaked.  =Good high ankle support with a wide tread base for stability.

Agree with the earlier reviews. These boots break in quickly, wear very comfortably and have good grip. 

I find them slightly sweatier than leather boots, but lighter and more comfortable over the course of a day. The soles release dirt quite easily, also.

Great comfort out of the box, but noticeably more comfortable after a few miles. Never a blister or hot spot. Boots were  comfortably warm, not overly so, in 40 degree weather.  Multiple hikes in rain, water crossing and some very light rock scrambling showed great traction on all surfaces and absolutely no water leaks.

I have nothing negative to say about the boot, although I'm sure the color is going to be an issue for some people.

I believe if you want a lightweight 3 season hiking/backpacking boot this is definitely one to consider.

This boot is very comfortable right out of the box and it broke in after about 8 hours of wear.

The traction seems very good.
