Salomon Quest 880's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Stumbled across a good deal on these, the retailer didn't have very detailed information so I contacted Salomon who said the 880's are the rental version of the Quest 8's. All he could tell me is that the 880's don't have as good of a liner and may be a little heavier, but didn't know how much heavier. Same flex and buckles/strap. Do you think it's worth an extra $230 to go from the 880's to the 8?

For $230 you could be most of the way to an Intuition liner and quality footbed, that's gonna be better than the 8's 'better liner'.

If money wasn't an issue I would probably go that route

I guess I wasn't very clear, or I didn't understand your question. It sounded like you were trying to decide if spending the additional $230 was worth it for a 'better' liner in the Quest 8. I was saying, or trying to say, that an Intuition liner is better than the Quest 8 liner and could be had for less than $230, therefor spending $230 for a better stock liner in the Quest 8 was a bad investment. If you can only afford the 880 anyway then... well, there you go, problem solved.

Yep, you got it. I ended up buying the Quest Access x70 for $160 after trying it on at the store, I really liked it. Thanks for your help and advice though.
