Great boot for the money

Great fit out of the box. I have a slightly narrow foot and enjoy some additional room in the toe box. Stand-in-water waterproof and stylish for the trail. Quality, durable double stitched seam construction. One small downside is the flimsy insole these come with- I had to upgrade to a pair of green superfeet with a more supportive heel cup and to better support my arches. No shoe or boot manufacturer provides quality inserts, so it is imprtant to consider them regardless, so I cannot dock the boot any stars as a result. For the price and with back country's bullet proof return policy I would recommend buying these Scarpa Kailash GTX boots. I'm considering buying a second pair while their sale is on.

so right about flimsy inserts and in reality something that I always upgrade before using a boot. Funny thing is Scarpa sells replacement ones same as original insoles. Who would buy those?
