Love it
5 5

Tent is easy to set up with the new clip system - I'm glad they went away from the sleeves. Tons of guy points, ventilation zips are nice (we experienced minimal condensation at 10,000' on Rainier), vestibule is just big enough for two climber's packs/stove/boots/etc. Recommended for mountaineering and winter camping.

Chris, it is my understanding that the Hyper Traction is actually more rigid than the M11+, although they appear to have the same level of rigidity per the Kayland website (and your talk w/ the rep). I have the M11+ and use them for summer mountaineering as well as early winter climbs and snowshoeing. This boot works very well for cold+wet snowshoe adventures. The M11+ will also handle your miles of approach. As far as fit, you really need to try walking in both boots - I can say that there is absolute minimal heel slippage. For reference, the Trangos and the Mamooks didn't fit my feet, but the Kaylands fit great. I use DFP insoles instead of the provided ones... hope some of this helps in your decision..

*Warmth comparison -- I have the Cornice Mitts and the Hestra XCR Mitts, and I must say that the Hestra's are warmer. However, what I love about the Cornice mitts (and other OR handwear) is that you can use the Gore-Tex shell with other liner combinations. Tough choice, I recommend trying a few on. I tried about 7 before I settled on the Cornice and the XCRs.
