For folks who own a pair of the Superiors, what has your experience been with the tread? It looks like it would be good on harpack, but I don't expect it to grip well in mud at all. Any thoughts?
To give you some background, I've been considering the Altra Superiors for three-season backpacking in the southeast. I would use them on trail only(not for bushwhacking). The trails I walk have some hardpack, although the trails can be pretty wet and messy in spring and fall. There are lots of roots to contend with and some small river crossings. I also encounter rock outcroppings and a lot loose stuff on the more eroded trails. I hike mainly in north Georgia, east Tennessee, and North Carolina.
