take some breaking in
Have had a few trips out on the ice with these in northwest Mt. They are a little stiff at first and take some breaking in. Seemed to do well keeping the water out and fit my MSR Evo snowshoes well. My feet did get a lil cold after an hour if inactivity but warmed right back up as I hiked around. I treated my boots with Kiwi Mink oil and then with Camp Dry although this is not a must it seems to help protect them from rotting and they last longer. Over all a great boot that I would buy again. only 4 stars because the gaiters don't fit over my pants and I have to wear others to keep my legs dry.
