Mammut's Georganic 3D technology optimizes the upper's fit for outstanding comfort, and Contact Control ensures enhanced mobility on the mountain. Vibram's Ascension Litebase sole reduces weight without taking away any of the traction needed for mountainous ascents, and there's a heel insert for crampons.

I always test new boots for waterproofness before I decide to keep them. I waded in our local creek with my dog today and they passed the waterproof test. I will add to this after some mountain terrain. I love how light they are. I love that there is no stitching to rub through in the crampon attachment areas. That is one of the most important aspects of a boot to me. I've ruined $300 + boots because the crampon straps rubbed through the stitching in one day. Bummer. I look for these areas now and I won't buy mountaineering boots that have stitching underneath where the crampons attach. These pass with flying colors. Oh yeah, it sort of has a gaiter and I love that the tongue only has one slit/gusset The other side is solid. It makes the tongue comfortable right out of the box. These also have a better warranty than boots costing 2x as much.

Would I need longer crampon center bars with this boot in a size 13?
