This may be a spectacular product, however it is unavailable for purchase anywhere on the web or in stores.

Comfy and so light! My one complaint is that they leaked where the upper met the sole after 30min of deep puddles. They did dry pretty quick though...

I just bought these and have never had a more comfortable shoe period. The snug fit provided by the mid-cut design and dual lacing system is key and allows for adjustments on the move, including adjusting pressure points for differences in sock thickness. Bottom line, these are a really great product.

I agree with Ryskiag,....
Where can you buy the woman's shoe?

Don't knock the rating of these shoes down because you can't find them. These are some of the best shoes money can buy with ample support and comfort for 30+ mile day hikes.

Q.} I am 6'7'' and an active outdoorsman year-round. Which 20ish degree bag has the most shoulder space and is still rather light?

A.} To get the best answer for your question, I went to two BACKPACKER staffers who can relate: Jon Dorn and Ben Fullerton, both 66. Here are a few of their three-season picks.
