Great Waterproof Hiking/Climbing Boot
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've logged many many miles on these boots guiding in the San Juan mountains of SW Colorado and never had blisters. The Vibram sole is the perfect stiffness that remains comfortable while still being stiff enough to prevent you from feeling every rock on the trail. They offer great support from the flat trail to steep rocky 4th class alpine climbs/scrambles. And the GORE-TEX liners keep you nice and dry on those stream crossings. These are awesome and my only complaint would be if you wear them in a wide range of temperatures (20-deg F to 75-deg F) they are not very warm when it's cold. But they stay cool when it's warm so it's hard to complain.
