Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $230
Very comfortable, minimal break-in time, waterproof, warm. Grip not the best on snow or ice.
- Grip not 4-season
- Laces can be difficult to undo
I've used these for hiking, backpacking, and climbing with and without crampons, on dry trail, muddy and wet trail, and alpine conditions. They are very comfortable boots, are fairly light, have good support and cushioning, and have taken some abuse with no ill effects.
They are definitely waterproof and warm enough for snow (but still breathe well enough to be cool in warm weather), and clean up like new after being wet and muddy. They do take some break-in, I'd say 3-4 good hikes at least.
The laces are strong but tend to get stuck in the big eyelets on the sides, making them difficult to get off sometimes, and the laces come loose if not double tied. The soles are good for most terrain but not great on snow or ice. My foot is about average width to a bit narrow and these fit well.
It's always a good sign if, after 8 hours, you aren't dying to take them off...
