Salomon Fronterra 6 GTX
Materials: suede and nylon with gore tex
Use: moderate to heavy trail with pack
Break-in Period: 1 week
Price Paid: $200 Cdn
This was a very nice boot. For walking on moderate trails I was really impressed with the ankle support. The polypropylene shank gave the boot excellent torsional rigidity. The Gore-Tex was a great addition to the boot. It allowed me to walk through small creeks. Unfortunately, after about two months the boots started to leak in the front. I sent them back and they were unable to fix them.
Use: Med trail w/ heavy pack
Break-in Period: 10-15 days
Weight: about 6lbs
Price Paid: $125
Good boot for a 10 day hike over med. trails w/ a 45+ lb pack. That's all I have to say, besides that it's a good price and comes w/Gore-Tex. A wider boot than most.
