This boot handled a four day backpacking trip incredibly well. Four days on wet trails and my feet stayed comfortable and dry the entire time. They even handled a four hour slosh in wet spring mud when I returned to my car to find it stuck and had to get it out. Can't comment on the durability of these boots though they fail to show few, if any, signs of normal wear-and-tear after the couple of times they've been used. Great boot!
