Does the tongue guesset connect the tongue all the way to the top of this boot?
How high is the tongue attached to the upper? Is there a waterproof seal all the way to the top of the boot, or is the tongue only attached part way up?
Disappointed in this purchase. 1 of the 2 bots leaked significantly on the first time I wore it. There seemed to be a leak somewhere underneath the footbed.
Good things about this boot: very comfortable right out of the box. Very natural walking motion. I put on a Kayland Contact Rev on one foot and an Asolo Fugitive GTX on the other. The eVent boot was noticeably cooler and I was actually surprised that I was able to sense a difference. I also really like Kayland's included footbed.
Bad things: it leaked. Wow, I was very disappointed.
Neutral things: Also, this boot was a little bit high for my liking and I prefer a lower-cut boot. I didn't realize how high-cut this boot is, and I prefer to have a little more ankle mobility, particularly when point my toes down. This isn't really a "bad" feature of the boot though, just a personal preference.
