Who should buy the Vasque Saga GTX
Vasque’s Saga GTX is designed for quick-paced treks in the mountains and other challenging trails. It is a perfect choice for those who are:
- looking for a supportive backpacking boot that is lightweight and breathable
- looking for underfoot support with adequate cushioning and protection
- looking for an outsole that can offer skid resistance on tricky terrain
Vasque Saga GTX’s grippy Vibram outsole
With its Vibram Megagrip outsole, which is based on the Megagrip compound, the Vasque Saga GTX promises surefootedness on unpredictable surfaces, whether damp or dry.
Across its surface are uniquely shaped, hardwearing lugs which anchor in on rugged terrain. Its heel and forefoot ends are engineered with ridge-like tread patterns, helping backpackers avoid slipping when ascending or descending multi-level grounds.
Vasque devises a cushy, dual-density midsole for the Saga GTX
Vasque engineers equipped the Saga GTX with the cushy yet sturdy All Terrain Compound (ATC) midsole. Its dual-density construction aids during transitions as the part where the foot rolls is much denser. Within its arch zone is an embedded shank made of TPU. This added component reinforces the medial section of the footwear and improves its arch support.
On the additional underfoot cushioning front, the boot comes with a dual-density anatomical footbed. It is designed with a high rebound rate, assisting the wearer during push offs.
Saga GTX’s comfortable upper
The Saga GTX’s upper is made with a combination of engineered mesh and 2-millimeter waterproof nubuck leather. It has Gore-Tex’s Extended Comfort liner which makes the boot both breathable and water protected.
Ventilation ports are placed on the forefoot and heel zones of the waterproof gear for more breathability.
Its closure system consists of round synthetic laces and metallic combination eyelets (closed loops at the bottom, open hooks at the top).
