User Review: Salomon Men's Quest 4D GTX
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $196 with REI 20% off members coupon
Fits well. Very, very comfortable. Bought for day hiking when carrying a light pack (Osprey Stratos 36) with 20 lbs or so. Good traction. Very good closure with good lacing system (keeps the stones out). Will be trying it later on multi-day backpacks carrying a Deuter 70 + 15-live near bear country, so must carry a bear box-garcia).
- Good fit
- Stays laced
- Very good ankle support
- Cost an arm and one leg
Have worn it only on day hikes so far. That is what I bought them for (to replace a 10-year-old pair of Salomon dayhikers that wore out). Looking forward to a long and enjoyable time with them.
The fit was very good (I wear Men's 11 medium and they fit like a glove).
Very, very comfortable.
Good support, although I have fitted them with orthotics as I am a serious pronator.
No chance yet to check water resistance in the field (live in Southern California which this year is more desert-like than usual). Have washed them off to remove dirt and grime and noticed no water inside.
Have climbed several very steep and dusty hills and always felt like I had a good grip on the slope.
Have not used them under cold weather conditions but they appear to breathe well.
Only tall boot I could find to really give me good ankle support. A twisted ankle on mountain trails is no fun.
