"Got these boots for winter hiking and broke them in on a trip into the Grand Canyon (Dec '12). Very warm boot, perhaps it wasn't cold enough on the way down (30F) cause my feet were toasty. I could feel the sweat initially. Goretex (combined with my merino wool socks) kicked in and feet were warm the whole time. On they way back up it was about 15F on snowy trail - didn't even bother to use traction devices. Feet were nice and warm again. I didn't give it a full 5 stars due to: - weight, these bad boys are a bit heavy and it's mainly due to the sole - break in was a bit tough, they are better after ~17 miles, but some pain on ankles were the top of the boot ties down. (release the last 3 notches to avoid some discomfort) Some positives to highlight: - definitely a warm boot to use in snow - good ankle support when going thru rocky terrain - definitely water proof - great traction Will use them next on a hike to Mt Raineer or Mt Whitney."
