Salomon Quest

Early on, we wrote about the Salomon Quest. During the recent inclement weather here in Hampton Roads we wore them during our outings and it jogged our memories. Yes, literally “we”, as we all own a pair.

Salomon Quest - Grey

Quite simply, they rock. Ultra-lightweight, comfortable right out of the box, and waterproof they are favorites around the home office. The boot is built on the same last as the Salomon XA Pro 3D running shoe; their most popular footwear model and is a beefed up “light hiker” that is intended to protect the wearer’s foot in harsh terrain, even while carrying a heavy load. The sole uses Salomon’s 4D Chassis. The outsole has an ascending lug pattern in the front of the sole, and a braking pattern in the rear. Beneath the foot is a cushioning pad, while the chassis protects against twisted ankles, and then an additional cushioning pad to absorb rocks and roots underfoot (4 layers= 4D). In addition to the Grey shown above there is also an Orange variant that may interest Search and Rescue professionals.

The Quest is available from RP Tactical.
