I agree with an earlier reviewer; it seems like these boots run a half size small. I ordered a 10.5 (USA), and had to return them and replace them with 11. The good news: the returns are simple and convenient, and the larger size is perfect. After a brief break-in period, the boots are very comfortable. I haven't worn them on any big trips yet, just a couple of overnighters, but I'm hopeful they'll be as comfortable (or more so) as I use them. The only downside I have found so far is that a thin layer of rubber from the toe is peeling. It hasn't hurt the performance of the boot, but I have a concern that it might be an indication of poor quality. My fingers are crossed that this is only a minor cosmetic defect, because I really like these boots.

I think these must run a half size small, i have always been comfortable with 10. These are tight. Unfortunately I am unlikely to be able to take a backpacking trip anytime soon, so for regular work and play, they will be ok, but they wouldnt be with a thick set of hiking socks. Other than that, I like them. If they hold up well, I'll order another pair a half size bigger.
For being suede, are they really waterproof?...
For being suede, are they really waterproof? $180 is a lot to gamble if they aren't. I know Mammut makes good gear (I have one of their beacons) but do they make good boots? Thanks to anyone that replies! Don in Utah
Does the depression in the back part of...
Does the depression in the back part of the sole mean that these are crampon-compatible? Would they be stiff enough to accept crampons?
This will work with a strap on crampon. It doesn't appear to be compatible with a new matic or semi new matic crampon.
