Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been wearing the Cragmasters for over a year as my primary approach shoe, and I love them. I haven't experienced any of the durability issues that other reviewers mentioned - mine are still holding up great, although they'll be ready for a resole in another six months or so.
This shoe is what I wish every approach shoe was - a clean and simple, comfortable leather upper with a burly rand and a dot rubber sole. So many approach shoes seem way overbuilt.
I'll wear a trail runner for non-technical or high-mileage approaches, but when talus hopping, scrambling and slabby walk-offs are on the menu, these are the jam. For training scrambles around SLC like the West Slabs or the South Ridge of Superior, where youre rock hopping, doing some easy climbing and light trail running all in the same session, these things work great. Would highly recommend them.

It's not an insulated Gore-Tex glove. It's a leather work glove. Of course it's not totally waterproof, but hit these babies with some extra snowseal and theyre good to go.
For the backcountry skier, there are three gloves to have - a fleece liner glove for skinning, an insulated waterproof glove for heinous cold and wet conditions, and this glove for everything else. For the price, you can't beat these.
