Bought these boots a couple of years ago and have been very impressed with the performance. Used them the first day on a little 3 hour day hike in Banff, Alberta. Didn't get to test them out much but the next day did a longer hike(7hrs) in absolute comfort. Great grip on scrambles and felt confident on scree slopes and knifepoints. good support with a 25 lbs pack, and comfortable all day. no blisters, no chaffing, no aches. and all that on the second day i owned them.
I have since used them on numerous hikes & backpacking trips, (Canadian Rockies, Gros Morne Park, Killarney Prov. Park., Smokies, etc) all with the same results.
Never an issue. I have used them with a 60 lbs pack on a 10 day trip, on rough trails, scrambles, creek crossings all with wonderful comfort support and grip. I found the sole sticky on even wet rocks and roots. I have found them to be quite durable and the waterproof gtx lining is great. padded tongue keeps them comfortable even as you snug them up and keep on hiking on a long trek.

Got this after getting my wife the women's prolite plus and getting envious(I had an old 1/2" thick 3/4 length thermarest from the early 90's. Wonderful upgrade. Much more comfortable(maybe i am just getting old) and only 4 ounces heavier even though this one is regular size. Comfortable on rock, sand, even with roots we couldn't avoid under us. over all very happy for what i spent.

Got this lighter for backpacking trips and i love it. works great, lights up first time, every time. I like the flame control too. (very useful feature). I have one and am considering getting a couple more for emergancy kits. Only suggestion is to put a cord through the hole in the cap so you don't lose it. this allows you to clip it to your pack or hang it around your neck when not in use.

For the people who are complaining/debating about the weight, just get off your computer and go for a hike already. 1 .6 ounces or 2.4 ounces. Who Cares???!!! If you are concerned about that much weight you have bigger problems.
