    Word.

    Friends also don't let friends buy junk. 5.10 Canyoneers: rubbish at any price.

    WOW...canyoneers are ON sale! A 5% discount! That almost covers sales tax! I paid $100.00 for mine! : (

    I agree that those pricey canyoneers kinda suck. The buckles on mine fell apart after less than half a dozen canyons, and I've had to sew, rivet, and cobble them together on a regular basis. Plus they're awful to hike in! And most of the tread was gone soon after using them in sandstone canyons.

    Maybe I'm just picky but I'm sick of having to haul my hiking shoes through all the canyons!

    Anybody got a good recommendation for good hikers with sticky rubber that drain well? I'm in the market for shoes!

    PS: who wants a stinky old pair of cobbled, riveted, sewed, tread-less canyoneers!? Size 6 in men's (oh that's another thing - they don't make women's sizes). Is that company sexist?

    Damn. Rat-baitin getting harder than ever these days. It's a cryin' shame. Hey, what's the scoop on the Hybrid pack? Seen pix but no details...

    Sure. I love the 5.10 canyoneers. I love hiking in them. So comfortable. They last me dozens of canyons. They drain well. And the sticky rubber is to die for. I am such a better climber in them. Haven't had a buckle fail in the last 4 years. Just goes to show you..Different strokes fer different folks ;-) R

    I agree, I love my 5.10 Canyoneers, I did a three day backpack trip using them as my only shoe. I'd rather hike in my 5.10's than any other pair of shoes I've owned. I got a pair of Exum Rivers for free, but never wear them because my 5.10's are more comfy and the rubber seems to stick better. It all just depends on the person.

    My narrow feet fit much better in Sportivas than those floppy Canyoneers. I am glad to have someone else filling the niche, canyoneers were "good" when they were the only shoe on the market. Each shoe has its tradeoffs....the Exum Rivers just have fewer for me.

    More importantly....Tom...do share on the Hybrid pack..

    I agree. It is rare that a trip with 5.10 canyoneers doesn't leave me with either arch pain or blackened toenails. Something about the last they use for those shoes just isn't compatible with my foot. The Exum Rivers are a dream though, the most comfortable canyon shoe I've found - no pain, nothing.

    I love 5.10's Anaszi Moccasyms for rock climbing though. Best I've found for fit and stickiness. Then again I don't hike around in climbing shoes, so maybe the damage hasn't had time to set in. :)

    Someone needs to make either a 'budget' canyoneering shoe or a shoe that isn't destroyed after a dozen days out. Too bad Dunlop Volleys are hard to get in the US. I wish I'd bought a suitcase full last time I was in Oz. Live and learn.

    Last year I needed 40 pairs of Canyoneers for our rental department. Problem was, they were sold out for the remainder of the year in Europe...

    I took a look at the rest of 5.10's catalog and decided on this model: http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/6181008/c/34250.html

    Result: not a single shoe broken last season, we don't have to buy new ones for this year.

    Plusses: - much more comfortable than a Canyoneer, by an incredibly wide margin. - very good ankle support. - bombproof, not a single shoe failed (of 40 pairs). During a similar season about 3/4 of the Canyoneers would typically fail. - exactly the same grip as the Canyoneers.

    Minuses: - for wide feet. - drain and dry very slowly. The first one is a bonus is cold water, the second is not nice when doing another canyon the day after in still soaking wet shoes. Disregard this if you're into dry canyons :).

    I am all for supporting your local shop but unfortunately, most local shops don't support canyoneering.

    I live in Boulder Colorado, a town with access to more specialty outdoor shops than anywhere in the U.S. Getting any of these shops to support canyoneering has been like pulling teeth.

    Support your local shop first, but if they won't carry canyoneering gear, shop at Mountain Gear. Or better yet, buy on-line from Imlay. At least these companies support our sport.
