This has been an excellent boot. I've had it for over a year now and am very happy. I did 15 miles in the boot with a heavy pack the first weekend and had no problems. I have used the boot mostly in very cold conditions but have done some summer hiking in them as well. They hold up very well in wet weather and provide good support on rough trails. The boots fit best with a heavy sock. I highly recommend the boot for rough trails with a moderate load.
