I've had this boot for 3 years. I go backpacking 3-4 times a year. My main complaint with it is toe bang: I got a lot of it going down 5000 feet in the Grand Canyon when I first bought them, after a short break-in period. My big toes were badly bruised. Then last week I experienced a similar fate in the Catskills going down 2400 feet.

These boots are well made, the Goretex bootie works fine, and the soles give a secure grip, but I don't think these fit my admittedly low volume (bony) feet. The boots don't offer any stringing options to help keep my feet in the heel cup as I descend a trail, so I'll be shopping for boots again before my next trip.

Too bad, other than this I liked these boots.
