Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pros: Two years later, these babies keep my feet dry- even in deep water. I've found them to be very durable.

Cons: Heavy, and have terrible grip in snow and on granite. Completely useless on wet granite.

I've had these for two years now, in which I wore them almost everyday this past winter. I live and work in Yosemite and worked outside and on my feet during the winter. We had a harsh winter, with record amounts of snow and rain unloaded on us. Never did my feet get wet. I sloshed through snow, rain, nasty wet and slushy snow, and even flooding. During many of our winter floods, i would be out for multiple 12 hour days in ankle deep water, and I'd come home with dry feet every day. They're a bit on the heavy side and stiff, for my liking, but they make up for it in dry feet and durability. After two years and a winter through the wringer, they still look new. As for uses, I now only use these for work around Yosemite Valley. They have pretty terrible grip on snow (I had to attach yaktrax), as well as granite rock. Wet granite can be tough to have grip on, but it was like walking on ice with these. Since Yosemite (and a lot of the Sierra) is almost completely granite, they don't work well in the backcountry here. I'm sure they're great in other types of terrain.
