fantastic boots

used these all summer in southern B.C. Rockies and eventually on five day hike of the west coast trail.... i had read about the plastic hooks breaking but i assure you if one "broke walking in the brush" that was an isolated error. Ive raced up and down some pretty harry scree slopes banging them around hard and nothing has broken yet. As for them not being waterproof nothing can be further from the truth. Someone said Gore-tex doesn't cut it... that's not true, if your goretex isnt waterproof its because you probably dried the boots by a fire that was to hot and dried out the goretex liner or punctured it with a sharp stick or something. that being said i did add some mink oil and nik wax to them before going on the west coast trail... even when walking IN the ocean my feet were always 100% drytake care of these boots and they will take care of youhighly HIGHLY recommended
