I'm A Lifer

These are Outdoor Gear Lab's Editor's Choice winner for 2016 for a reason.

I have a few miles with quite a few brands and the Quest 4D 2 is EASILY the best boot I've ever worn. Rock solid with bigger loads but agile enough for day hiking. Quality construction with high marks for grip, waterproofness, lacing system (and laces), and foot protection. The high ankle cuff is unobtrusive and helpful. And despite weighing three pounds they have a much lighter feel.

Not the highest marks for sole durability but terrain has a lot to do with that as does lack of competition for Vibram.

But where these things totally shine is with comfort. I've never had anything less than total comfort in these. Can't say that about any other boot I've worn. I've still got a couple hundred miles in my current pair and I just grabbed another on this CRAZY sale STP is offering. I would have paid the $230 retail and not even blinked. Totally worth it.
