Keen Revel IV High Polar Waterproof Boot
Great fit, insulated with 400g Thinsulate, and has an excellent gripping sole. This is my first experience with Keen products, and I wonder why I didn't try them on before!
- Great fit
- Sole is great on icy/snowy trails
- Wish it had a locking eyelid for the ankle
The fit is great. I usually wear 9.5 or 10 US in boots and the 10 US is great, plenty space for socks and toes. I use to wear mid hiking boots for my winter hikes but needed warmer boots as I aged.
Sole has great traction, since it is not Vibram but Keen's own brand.
I woud have given them 5 stars, but it misses a locking eyelid for the heel (heel lock).
I don't know who tests the company boots (Keen or other brands), but Keen are way to generous with the -40°c rating! Been using them at -25°c, with a medium Smartwool hiking pair of socks, and let me tell you that is the real world upper limit.
I tried my Hillsound Ultra crampons with them and it was a perfect fit.
The leather changed color on the tongue, and the fabric started to fray a little where my gaiters' hook hold to the laces.
They are waterproof.
My feet don't sweat at all whatever sock I use.
Did not use my snowshoes with them yet, so I will keep you updated.
