I've had mine for almost a year, and they've handled the jungles of Honduras, countless climbing trips to the Red, days of backpacking and everyday life on a college campus without a single issue. The soles are firm but comfortable, and the Gore-Tex does exactly what it should. Don't expect your feet to stay perfectly dry in shorts in a rain storm, but they'll get the job done day in and day out. Definitely worth the extra coin.

Bought this on the cheap from SAC, and I'm happy I bought it, but happy I bought it for 60% off. As a pad, it does exactly what it's supposed to. I've stayed warm in a light bag down to about 45F, both in a tent and in an ENO hammock.

My only complaint is its size when packed. It's almost too bulky to fit in the pad straps on the bottom of my pack, and the width when rolled up is a bit cumbersome.

I'm 6'2", very athletic at 190 lbs. and I JUST fit. Anyone with a larger frame should definitely buy the XL version.

Overall, it's worth it (especially considering the price) to buy as long as you're not an ultra-light fanatic. I'm a big ALPS fan, and this is a solid product that will hold up well.

Bought these as my first pair of climbing shoes and COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! I've used them both in the gym and at Red River Gorge, KY over the last three months and have no complaints. Mine have not stretched as much as some suggested, but that may come over a bit more time. I have a size 15 foot and had trouble with the shoes at my university's gym, but these have been awesome.

Love the lace-up, but I'm a bit traditional. The feel is great through the toes, and I haven't noticed any slipping in the heel. My feet come out feeling pretty good after every weekend trip or weekday workout. If you're considering it, go for it!

Oh yeah, the blue will get you some compliments.
