rated 1 of 5 stars These were my first walking boots bought for walking in New Zealand, so years ago I bought these crap boots. Well, I'm glad I didn't eventually go because these would have let me down—3 very bad points let these down. No.1 They are very hot! Unless worn in sub-Antarctic conditions No.2 They are very very slippery on rocks or anything really! No.3 The worst thing about these boots is the build quality. The welded rugged sole separates from the boot in several places and I have never really walked… Full review

Charmoz Pro GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight boots for spring to early fall mountaineering and hunting boots. I hunt sheep and goat in Alaska in steep mountain terrain. I have other boots for my late hunts (October to December) which are very stiff and not made to walk flatter terrain. I bought these for my spring and summer hunts and scouting where there is a lot of rolling hills and lower level mountain terrain. They also give me solid ankle support, packing out 80 pounds for several miles. Because they are non-insulated, in… Full review

Vapor V

rated 4 of 5 stars Versatile all-around precise shoe. I have had the new 2015 lime green model since April 2015. These are really good shoes for doing a lot types of climbing, but not the best except for small edges. I think I'd like them more with a stickier sole and a bit more camber. Great mileage shoe, perfect for a beginner looking for some performance.  Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent professional product. As a hiking guide in Banff National Park I needed a boot that was comfy, had good ankle support, and was virtually indestructible. If you waterproof these boot properly they will become just that. I just wish I could say that about the insides, but then again they would not have been as comfy. So after five years I replaced these boots with the exact same boot. They now come with a footbed and the toe protector is different. Though I don't like to do a review unless… Full review

Kailash GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Nice sole and support, questionable durability. Very comfortable! This is for the previous version (2014 and earlier?) of the Kailash GTX. I think it's the first generation. Not sure how the newer one compares. Overall this is a really good boot for comfort and performance. I used it for 4-5 years of heavy backpacking and ridge scrambles. No problems with waterproofing or traction, although it roles a bit on tiny edges. That's to be expected though. The sole resists the trail quite well, if that… Full review
