As I mentioned in my recent posts from the Inglés, we walked eight out of eleven days in the rain. Knowing that we were in for rain, I chose wearing my Merrell Moab GTXs in lieu of my non-waterproof trail running shoes. Although it was probably the best decision, I, nonetheless, still ended up with wet feet every rainy day. I would describe the Moabs as more water resistant than waterproof. Or, maybe there was a problem with my particular pair. In any case, after calling, describing the problem, and sending off photos, Merrell got back to me within 24 hours with their offer to replace my year old shoes with their newer comparable model. In their opinion, the Gore-tex should have kept my feet dry. Merrell will also be replacing my wife’s Moab 2 Waterproof shoes with their upgraded Moab 2 Gore-tex model for the very same reason. The Merrell Moab continues to be a very comfortable hiking shoe and one that works well on varied terrain. Hopefully, our new Moabs will be as waterproof as they are advertised to be. Great customer care from Merrell!
