Easy to walk in.
- Plastic boot lacing
I take a size 10.5 in my summer hiking boots and the 11's with Smartwool mountain socks fit great.
I bought these boots for camping because you can take the inner boot with you in the sleeping bag and they are sturdy also for hiking in the White Mountains.
The weight of the boots don't bother me but I found that the inner boot rubs below the calves so I wrap them. I'm guessing it's because I have skinny legs. I have used them three times, once camping in about negative 10 degrees and my feet did feel the cold slightly. The other two times was hiking in the white mountains, about 0 degerees and recently hiking Mount Osceola and it was about 10 degrees.
Crampon use is easy, once you've done it a few times.
