    An agile, lightweight backpacking boot, Vasque's St. Elias combines all-leather comfort with a cutting-edge, weight-optimized outsole that conforms to the irregularities of the trail for ridiculous traction and feel.

          First ordered my normnal size (9-1/2), but had to return and go to a size 10, which fit good. Haven't worn them much yet, but fit is good, stiff sole for heavy hiking/hunting.

            Very good boot; taking some time to break in but NO blisters! Very much worth the $$ spent.

            Not a Good Backpacking Boot

                Boots broken in on day hikes; with heavy pack for backpacking thin sole became a problem. And, the boots seemed to get wider under heavy use.

                Hiked the Multnomah Falls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge and was very happy with the performance of this boot. It is durable, stable and provided great traction on and off the trails.
