Bought this for fall hiking and as undergarment fleece for winter, but am already wearing it.... Super fit (M) and tailored around waist, yet soft, snug around neck and plenty flex in shoulders. Snug under armpits (which I like) and sleeves very comfortable with snug fleece for my 35" arms. All zippers work smoothly and are easy to start. Will update after winter activities...

I bought these on sale as an alternate pair to my 5-year old Sawtooths, which are my favs. This is my toughest boot, AND I'd give it an extra star if the top cleats on the lacing system provided more space to enable back-lacing for additional ankle support. The top cleats are too "narrow" to back-lace downward and snug-up for steep declines and Idaho scree. Will try a lighter gauge lace, as unable to pry open steel cleat ....? Otherwise, a very tough boot that can be used for backpacking, wood cutting, fence building, or just around the shop/house. True 10.5 with good heel snugness and wide foot pad. Somewhat hot on long August days. Vibram sole with 5mm lugs very secure on slick rock descents with heavy pack. Prob fine & dry for snowshoeing/Yaking. Made in China with EXCELLENT QUALITY; will use for many years without doubt. 5',11"'; 175 lbs.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

because it's big around the waist...... I ordered a Large (Grey), which accomodates shoulder actions, but it appears jacket is designed for a belly - and I'm 32 in 501s. Just looked too puffy in the middle. Note also: Zipper Pull Tag is bright Orange, not Red. But, it's a beautiful piece of softgoods !!

There are better boots, but not for the price and quality you get here. My first Northface and I've hiked Merrell for many years in Central Idaho's mountains, but changed this spring for moderate price. Not as "stiff" as Merrell's "Sawtooth" (discontinued?), which is still my fav, but I like this Hedgehog Mid far better than Merrell's Mid-cap Moab. It's tougher. Here's why: 3 gromets on top are necessary in Idaho's terrain, as top 2 should be backlaced for added ankle support; Roomy toe (I'm 10.5; bought 10), and can be worn with one sock (two socks are stuffy and hotter), heel and foot pad are VERY comfortable. Insoles are comfy and form fitting heel pocket from get-go,so with proper lacing, foot is immediately secure. Secure at ankle with soft tongue. No hot spots at all. Vibram sole works well, as long as on ball of foot going downhill in shale, slickrock, or loose dirt/gravel (stay "over" your skis). If your weight is thrown to your heels, your weighted foot shoots forward, as heel potion of sole doesn't "bite" aggressively. OK/Fine if you stay forward on ball of foot. I prefer a beefier lace with bigger lace openings, but this one's adequate, so far. I've already put a hundred miles or so on these pups with challenging vertical and rockface, extreme angle descents - and I am confident and secure with its future performance. Shows no wear, so far. I think one of the best of the mid-price boots offered recently. Will prob wear two socks in winter, - one compression - and expect fine performance in snowshoes, as it's light; yet will be secure and stable in bindings. Rubber toe should keep foot dry. Good value in the Hedgehog.
