Re: Patagonia Rock Grip Wading Boot-Aluminum Bar
Been wearing these for a year now.
Compared to the Patagonia Riverwalker sticky rubber boots, they do well in freestone waters.
Beware that if you step on a branch right in the instep of the boot you can slip and fall..there's just smooth rubber in that area.
The metal clasps for the laces up around the ankle are a little bit too close together. When lacing them up sometimes the laces get around the wrong clasps. Small inconvenience.
I gave it a value of 6, now that I know I can probably turn my old sticky bottom rock grips into aluminum bar rock grips. I may try that this summer.
I've found them to be heavy. Going to get a new pair of their ultralight felt bottom boots and add on the River crampons if I feel like I need it.
