User Review: Vasque Men's Wasatch GTX
Materials: gore-tex lined leather boots
Use: Backpacking in Colorado
Break-in Period: 2 days at work
Weight: 170 lbs
I don't understand the bad ratings. I have worn Vasque, Lowa, Asolo, and Montrail boots. Vasque always works for me. These boots required very little break in time.... just a couple days wearing them at work then off to the trails. Whether I am on rocky trails, climbing extremely steeps ascents and coming down crazy descents, wading through snowmelt, or kicking steps in snow slopes, these boots do it all.
Fit is great right out of the box. Even without the Gore-tex, the leather stays totally dry while crossing streams and while post holing in slushy snow or while hiking in rain, snow and slush storms (mushy snow and rain mix).
