My Locale one snowball away from big trouble
About Me Hiker, rower, bicyclist. I go light because I'd rather feel like a guy walking in the woods than a pack-mule hauling a load. Now the maker of the Backcountry Boiler, undeniably the baddest way to heat water on the planet.

Re: Anyone find Inov-8 soles slippery when wet?
I have a pair of the RocLite 315s and I find their wet traction superb. The rubber is super sticky, but also soft, and can lead to a short life. Most of my testing comes from water-polished rive...
