User Review: Vasque Clarion
Use: rough trails ,40lbs pack mud snow& wet
Break-in Period: 2weeks around the house w/ big socks
Weight: 230 lbs
Price Paid: $125 (not on sale)
fourth year on hi-peaks, many in winter. they see a lot of use in hunting season too. the weight ok for a heavy duty boot. mine are not gore-tex but will stay quite dry w/ waterproofing. the gore-tex are a bit tighter feeling than mine. great bite on bare rock. hold instep crampons well too. my wife's got the all-leather ones and work well but have seen less use. broke one lace 3 years in. great boot for someone with WIDE/BIG feet (12EEE) See scott's reveiw. I was blowing out 2 pairs of hi-tek sierras a year! the fit well but couln't hang in the tuff stuff. The vasques are real warm too. go get some, i've seen them on sale for under$100.
