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

Comfortable, quick dry, durable, light weight, compactable. It's seems pretty true that they don't stink so bad after a long day of traveling - but I still don't recommend it and honestly only have cursory evidence, I haven't done any thorough testing. I can tell you that a few pairs will last literally years.

My previous boot was an Asolo Fugitive but I like these even better, my feet aren't particularly wide in the middle but my toe box needs alittle more room, these fit like a glove. Walking around they are sturdy, great support, goretex liner keeps the water out. The construction is awesome, classic leather backpacking boot, these seem really well made.

They feel a bit heavier then my last pair but not much, and then these are sturdier boots, I knew I was making that trade and I'm happy I did, I expect I'll be wearing these still in 5 years.

Took a package of AlpineAire 5 Grain Fruit Nut Instant Cereal on a canoing trip through the Minnesota Boundary waters, it was real easy to make, just added boiling water and mixed. Tastes a bit like oatmeal with some sunflower seeds and dried fruit mixed in, not at all bad but a little plain, but it filled me up for the long day of paddling ahead.

I used to carry a bulky shovel axe combo, when the axe head started to fly off mid swing on ocassion, I started looking into other options. I replaced the saw portion with a 0.1 ounce ring saw, while this next to nothing weight, cleverly named iPOOD! is infinitely lighter and more compact form of shovel, especially for the purposes I use it for.

CONS: I have a hard time getting the plastic cap piece off to access the hollow compartment in the handle, and sand can quickly (although temporarily) gum up the function of the retractable handle.
