This report is based on ice climbing only 5 days in these boots. So far, I have been pleased. I have cold feet and these boots have kept me warm in below 0 weather. Fit is more narrow than the Nepal EVO, but not too narrow. With a pair of Smartwool Mountaineering socks, they are snug, but still have room to wiggle toes.
This is my first pair of climbing boots that aren't plastic so while I love the weight difference, and the improved feel, I have to remember I don't have to kick quite so hard.
The only negative at this point is I have some pressure on my right foot (near the little toe).
The boot is very waterproof and I plan to wear these boots this summer in the Cascades.

For next-generation ascents of big peaks and intimidating ice falls, lace up the Millet Men's Radikal Mountaineering Boot, and get weather protection along with a precise fit for demanding alpine applications. This lightweight mountain boot features a two-layer waterproof and insulating upper with a phylon honeycomb structure for support and protection. The 3D mesh lining features internal vent channels to keep you from overheating on difficult mixed pitches, and a waterproof overlap that covers the boot's gusseted tongue. The Vibram Teton sole gives you a solid grip when you're not wearing crampons, and the speed-lace system locks your foot in place.
