Patagonia Huckleberry 2009

The Patagonia Huckleberry multi-activity shoe weighs 992g (pair, size 11); comfortable with cool climbing style; precise fit thanks to lacing extending to toe; rubber toe reinforcement; Vibram sole unit; durable upper design; made with large amounts of recycled materials. But no waterproof lining; sole lugs not quite as aggressive as some other options.

Verdict: The Patagonia Huckleberry is a comfortable shoe that is quite practical for travel, crag approaches and biking but others have more of a performance edge to them.
