Size Purchased: 39

I was dismayed to get these boots and see that they made a lot of changes from the Mont Blanc GTX (Which I have been wearing all day every day for the last 2 years) to try to make this boot lighter weight I guess. The tongue design was especially disappointing; both the materials and how the tongue is attached are just not as high quality as the older pair I have; many corners were cut. And I'm not even going to address the gaiter, because I can see they already got rid of that on their newest model of mont blancs. The gaiter combined with the poor tongue design make the ankle of this boot unnecessarily bulky while somehow also providing no real support. The lack of ankle support was disappointing. I will be returning these boots, I am sad to see that none of the older model mont blancs are left in my size. I can tell that these will not be warm enough for tree work in Alaska this winter. They also fit smaller than my old pair of Mont Blancs. Struggling to find a boot as robust as the older Mont Blanc gtx in a size 39 at this point, and I am about to give up on Scarpa---I ordered the rebel pros from another seller and returned those as well because the materials and construction of that boot also just wasn't meant for longevity in a rugged environment. I need the rubber rand for all-around foot protection, the very rigid sole, and the ankle support; I live in these boots all day every day!!!

I LOVE these pants. However, they were expensive to begin with and now I have to take them to my seamstress to fix the inner crotch seam that is starting to lose its stitching after just one season. Great concept, but perhaps needs some extra care with the construction if the purpose is to do outdoor activities in them

I got these yesterday and my first impression is great! They are a good design; perfect length for wearing with mountaineering boots or even xtratufs. The zip off nature of them is ideal for my world, where I frequently need to add or remove layers without removing my footwear or don't want to struggle with trying to pull pants off over big muddy boots. They are very lightweight and fitted, yet warm! In regards to fit; I read another review that left me nervous about the fit of these, but for my body type they are perfect. I am a very muscular 115 lbs and 5'6; the XS fit great. I have a straight vs curvy build, typically my struggle with pants is when the waist is too tight when buttoned but the rest of the pant fits nicely, or the waist fits but the rest of the pant is too baggy. The XS of these pants are a perfect fit, and extremely comfortable. Looking forward to throwing them on without having to take my shoes off when I'm working outside in AK this winter and the temperatures drop!
