I have both. The fit is FAR different. The Wasatch GTX fits much more comfortably around the ankle....the Summit grips your ankle like a vice. The GTX 10.5 was a little small for me...it made my right toe ache after a couple of hours of bumping up against the inside of it. The Summit 10.5 was a little more generous in length but was stiffer and over all was harder to break in. I haven't used either for enough time or hard trips to give opinion on the wear characteristics. Sorry.

I agree with most of the reviews here. The boots were comfortable right out of the box. There were no defects in them. I have worn them most every day for about a month now, although I have not had them out on the trail yet. I think that the few bad reviews seen here are isolated events that should be taken with a grain of salt.

Now a few more months - I can tell you that while still happy with them, I have become aware that they are a whisker too small for me on the right foot. Toe aches after a few hours of bumping up against the tip of the boot. I am reluctant to buy an 11 for fear that it will be too large. I have gotten a pair of the Summits and they seem to be more generous in length.
