The Quest 10 W struck a chord with testers for its versatility, comfort and lightness. The team praised the roomy toebox and forefoot and a balanced and workable stance that got them out of tight spots with ease. Testers also liked its on-and-off convenience and the easy-to-manage buckles and hike mode. "Loved the wider buckles and power strap, and the hike function was easy," said Jana Rogers. Notes: women's specific upper cuff is slightly lower, Ride & Hike technology with Backbone release mechanism converts boot from alpine to hike/tour mode with a flip of a lever, biovent women's specific liner maximizes warmth and even fit.
