After doing ALOT of research for a winter boot, I chose these.. Brand new out of the box, I hiked 14 miles round trip, with 3,000 ft. of elevation, in snow. At times being close to knee deep. Must say, I was the only one with warm and very happy feet.( I also had gators on ) Felt like well broken in old friends. The tread could be better, but, I got these for snowshoeing/hiking. They have a tendency to slip on icy ground, but what doesn't! I would highly recommend these boots. Very lightweight... Might have to buy another pair before they are no longer available!

This is a great board with well designed hardware. The middle edge does protrude downward slightly and when it is super sharp, can make it a bit tricky on flat hard-pack. I just slightly chamfered the edge and it is fine now. When I stomp the snow off before getting on a chair (which isn't too often since I use this board mostly in the backcountry) the rear clip will sometimes come undone. Not a huge problem, just something to watch out for. Overall, I am very impressed with the board and hardware.
