I used these backpacking boots on an extensive hike that required a 5000 foot vertical climb over about 24 miles - one way. During this climb we had to go through some extensive boulder fields, go through snow, and carry heavy packs as well.
These boots held up well. They kept my feet dry, protected my feet and ankles from rocks and prevented injury. I did not develop any blisters and my feet where comfortable the entire hike. I would highly recommend these boots to anyone engaged in serious backpacking in rugged, mountainous areas.
