The ONLY downfall of this boot is the crampon recall (and the metal hinge in the arch--which I successfully removed). Otherwise, this boot is EXTREMELY warm (I suffer from Raynaud's) and perfect for super-wide Hobbit feet. Another reviewer said no crampons were safely compatible... I disagree. The PETZL Charlet (Moser) has worked just fine for me. Not the best boot for vertical ice climbing-- I didn't find it stiff enough.
