Here's what other sites are saying:
The Montrail Women's Susitna XCR is the shoe of choice for all-season female runners who need breathability for autumn's dusty trails and superior protection from spring's excess water weight. Rather than placing a waterproof bootie inside the shoe to keep the foot dry, Montrail wrapped the Susitna in a Gore-Tex XCR shell to repel water from the outside. No matter how much time you spend in the wettest of conditions, DryShell keeps shoes from gaining water weight and provides one of the highest levels of breathability ever achieved in waterproof footwear. The minimalist upper design is pure function as light as possible, waterproof, and breathable. The sole combines four types of foam densities and a molded plate to dial in an optimal ride that is smooth on the road and stable on trails.

The Montrail Womens Susitna XCR is the shoe of choice for all-season female runners who need breathability for autumns dusty trails and superior protection from springs wet trails.
The Susitna XCR by Montrail is a high performance trail running shoe using Dry-shell construction where the GORE-TEX material is on the outside of the upper, keeping water from entering the fabric. This prevents the shoe from getting wet and heavy. The inner bootie is made of a light and pliable mesh and the lacing design works on a large number of different foot shapes. The Susitna has a smooth and stable ride owing to the wide midsole base and an imbedded nylon torsion bar. The shoe evens out the variety of surfaces encountered on a trail. The Susitna is perfect for snowshoeing, day hiking, and trail running in the rain.<BR> <BR>"One of my early experiences with the Susitna was running the burly Chuckanut 50L near Bellingham, Washington. The race began in a downpour, so not only was the ground spongy with water, but the air was supersaturated-perfect running weather. The Susitna, gaiters attached, were the key. The most graphic image I've seen of a shoe truly locking out moisture, is my mud-caked legs contrasting starkly with my clean, dry socks at the end of the race." <BR>- Scott Tucker, Ultrarunner and Montrail President
