I gave the last review of the Cresta and wanted to follow up after 100 miles of hard duty on this boot in the high mountains of Utah through days of rain, mud, and stream crossings. I didn't know then, but I can tell you now that these are COMPLETELY waterproof (except, of course, for that big hole in the top of the boot).

I really can't add much to the other great reviews of this boot here. All I can say is that after spending months aquiring gear for backpacking (boots, pack, bag, filter, stove, etc, etc) before this summer, the Bean boots, well, and my tent (Walrus Starstreme) are the only two purchases that I made that I am TOTALLY satisfied with.
