Just got the boots, so this might change.

After a short walk in an inch of snow I am impressed by the grip of the soles. After using them most of the day as "regular" shoes/boots they still impressed me. They had an exceptional grip, comfortable to walk with both on and off road. I stood for 10 minutes with water almost to the top of the boot and it was still dry.

After being used to boots that needed more than a few miles to break-in I was surprised to find this more or less an immediate fit. Slightly narrow by the toes, I guess that will change after a short break-in. 

Temp control was good.

Getting the shoes on was a hassle. 

Yes... they look a little strange, but they are waterproof to just below my knee. I can open up the gaiter and regulate the temperature. The gaiter insulates. If it is cold I'll just get wool leggings under. 

I'll update it when I have used them a little more.
