Awsome boot. Used for heavy duity hiking on wet/boggy ground. They took a while to set up and break in, but have never given blisters. I use them in conjunction with Berghaus Yetis and they carry them really well. Too warm for sunny summer days, but I would reccomend them to anyone who is serious about hiking

I love this boot. My entire unit wore them in the mountains of Afghanistan while deployed there this past year. It held up wonderfully in the rocky, rough terrain there. It was warm enough to keep my feet from going numb while in the snow. Very comfortable and provided great support carrying loads of more 100+lbs on my back. Highly recommended! A little tough on the break in, but not more than usual.

Excellent boot for mountaineering and for use with step in crampons. Rigid sole makes downhill hiking a bit unpleasant I found, providing little cushioning for the ball of the foot.

A great heavy duty backpack/trekking boot. If you're carry heavy loads off trail this boot rocks. Once broken in, it is so comfortable, I could almost wear it around town. Semi stiff so you can put crampons on it, I certainly wouldn't use it for extended steep snow field climbing. I love these boots and would recommend them to anyone, but don't think they're light duty, they are defintely heavy duty boots, but a good all around boot.
