User Review: Vasque Men's Clarion Impact
Use: heavy pack
Break-in Period: 1 week
Price Paid: $115
the wide version of the impact provides loads of comfort, great support and solid construction. However, the skywalker soles on these things are like wearing iceskates whenever you encounter moisture. Even fresh out of the box they will put you on your back, and don't even think about any watering crossings with them on.
I contacted VASQUE about the problem, they seemed unimpressed. If you are a serious packer...stay clear of these things.
