I was on a 8 day backpacking trip through Yosemite and because of the heaving snow fall that year we spent 5 of it on snow. It snowed and rained on us the whole time and only on the last day did my boots start to soak through. Everyone in the group had different boots and the grip was as good or better. The only downfall to the boots are that they wear out quickly. Mine lasted two seasons but I put 160 trail and off trail miles on them so I guess that's not bad. I will take the wear out factor over breaking in boots for 6 weeks. I'm buying my second pair and have used about every brand of boot over the years.
