Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I was very excited to get these boots until I actually used them on a short over night. the heel rubs when going up hill. so much so that even mole skin didn't help me out. Tried to tie them differently and contacted salewa to get their feedback. I used the insole how it came, with just one layer, with an aftermarket insole, with sock liners, with thick socks, with thin. When moving down hill, i feel like I am punishing the ground beneath me but any incline and the cable digs in the heel. I haven't given up, still trying to break my foot in, I may just cut the upper cable or just keep them for car camping.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this trip for a trip to the boundary waters in 9/2012. Tons of space, light for a two man and can't beat the price. Only dealt with a little rain. Bone dry. We did 5 nights on the boundary waters trip and I have done 5 seperate overnights in Arizona's high country. warm down to the 40's (I haven't been in colder weather with it yet). Set up and break down very easy and love have two vestibules.

I bought these for an upcoming trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (leave this week) and tried them out last weekend in the Wet Beaver Creek Wildness outside SEdona, AZ. my dog and I did 6 mile hike to camp on the canyon rim. we hit creek crossing at mile 4.5 then ascended to Rim 1.5 miles. I wore a thin wicking sock with them. Made it to the top with no blisters or rubbing of any kind. Next day when we went back down they were dry as a bone in less about 8 hours. We crossed again and walked the 4.5 miles back to trail head and again no blisters or rubbing, the drain easily and protect from the rocks on trail as well as in the creek. Worth every penny
