Great General Mountaineering Boot

I use these boots for General Mountaineering around south central Alaska. I climb peaks in the winter here, and yes it can be cold, and if anything I find these boots to be very warm, even for Alaska winters. Each person has different temps and comforts, for me these work fine! These replaced a pair of Asolo Alpinist boots, which last 3 years of intense use. My crampons go on these with no problems, snow shoes attach fine, and what I like about these is they dont have a lot of seams on the instep mid boot to break scrambling up long scree fields (the problem I had with my Asolo boots, constant cobbler repairs). Bottom Line these boots have functioned well for me, but then again I just climb mountains here in Alaska with them, in the Fall and WInter and Spring, not sure how that translates to what others are doing with them?
