Christmas is arriving early, thanks to Gore’s awesome lifetime warranty! I sent a pair of Goretex lined trail running shoes and climbing boots back to them because they were not waterproof anymore. They tested them and told me that they definitely leaked and were under warranty (i.e. not totally trashed). Within a week of specifying which shoes I’d like to replace them with, these showed up at my door:
The Trango Extreme’s have been a bit harder to locate in my size. If all goes well, I should have them soon too!
