i live in vermont by the lamoille river. it presents many challenges and the terrain is constantly changing. the stretch i paddle on between jeffersonville and johnson has varied conditions, downed trees, old farm equipment, lots of rocks, both smooth and jagged. after stepping on a rock and almost piercing my kayak boots, and being grateful i got away without stitches - figured it's time for a boot upgrade. i was torn between the SAR and the 2 versions, but after stubbing my toes on too many rocks, i went for the SAR version.

i recieved them, ordered pairs but i'm always between sizes. they tend to run small like salomon trail runners.

got travel orders so i have to wait till next weekend to try them out.

I haven't had any weather to use them in apart from cold rain. They were a bit stiff to break in, but now they are great. Their use mostly is for commuting to and from work on mass transit. The commute is 3.5 miles round trip on foot, plus the distance in the train stations.

They fit inside of pants, so it makes them easy to wear to work. So I caved and bought both the brown (coffee) and black ones.

The tall design with the gusseted tongue up high, helps for water and should do well in slushy snow. They are suprisingly light for what they are. I'm not too sure how they will do when you get below 0°F, however they will be used mostly in the Mid-Atlantic region. Unfortunately most of my Keen footwear, I have to add +20°F to their temperature rating. Unfortunately, Keen does not list the temperature range on their website. Preformance will however vary by region and conditions.

I would otherwise highly recommend these.

I tried them a couple of times. They were really great with the exception of warmth. My feet tend to run very cold and that was also the case with these boots. Aside from that they were great!I use them in Northern Vermont, good for treking across a field, but when I try to climb Mt. Mansfield, they are not up to the subzero cold and double digit negative wind chill.

I have both the Summit County and Snowsqualmie, they do well to around zero F, but below that in temperature, sorel, kamik, etc is your best bet. But I use the other two pairs in the mid atlantic states and hold up well to slushy city snow. These will not do well in Quebec and places of the like. I am happy with both pairs, the Snowsqualmie, runs kind of tight.
