Excellent footwear! I hike and trail run in these boots and absolutely love them! Lightweight yet tough: some of the terrain I hike/run on is gravel covered but I am not bothered by what is underfoot; I have also hit the tip of my foot on a tree root or two or exposed rock while at a good speed and have not experienced any discomfort. I like running in the boots (or midsoles) as I can run over tree roots without worrying about breaking or spraining an ankle with the protection this foorwear provides. I have crappy feet and yet shopped all day in these and had no foot pain at the end of the day while I have experienced pain after wearing Asics running shoes all day at an amusement park. The traction on these is another outstanding feature. Just an all around great pair of boots. I intend to backpack in them this spring instead of in a pair of Vasque leather hiking boots I own, I think they'll hold up well and make my hiking experience a little less weary due to their lightweight. I did get 1/2 size bigger than what I usually wear and that has been helpful in keeping my toes from smooshing up in the toe box while descending steep hills or even moderate slopes. Highly recommended!

i just got a BA encampment, small, which is supposed to "stuff" (er, i think they meant compress) to 8x8. the stuff sack it came with is 8x17 and is a REAL bear to get the bag into at that! anyway, i need to compress this bag for my pack ...i'm hoping it will compress in the XS bag on this comppression dry sack...any thoughts on my wishful thinking? should i go with a small instead?
