User Review: Vasque Alpine
Break-in Period: forever
Price Paid: $350 cdn
First pair leaked as soon as they got wet. The second pair have lasted three seasons of work as a ranger. The inner gore-tex liner parted at the ankle cuff and they have just started to leak. The ankle cuff has rotted (I have taken care of them applying leather care on a regular basis).
These boots are a mediocre buy. I feel they should have lasted a bit longer.
