Great boot. Love the craftsmanship. High quality. Lots of compliments. Functional AND fashionable. Haven't done big hikes in them but I'm sure they'd be adequate. They do seem to run about a 1/2 size large.

I ordered the XL and it was exactly what I was looking for my girlfriend and I's sea kayaking gear. We typically have 2 PFDs, 2 spray skirts, 2 paddle floats (foam), 2 bilge pumps, a small waterproof first-aid kit, a 10L dry bag w/ a few warm layers, a deck bag and a few smaller items and they fit great w/ a bit of room to spare. When we're done kayaking, we throw the wet gear right back in and don't have to worry if it stays in there for a few hours (or even days) as the mesh structure allows for great moisture management (i.e. no moldy gear). The bag seems really durable and I expect we'll get many years of use out of it. I also like the small stash pocket for smaller items (sunglasses, neoprene gloves, etc.). Highly recommended.

I'm trying to decide which boot to use on Aconcagua for a couple trips this winter. I currently own a pair or Scarpa Omegas that I've only used a few times for vertical ice climbing. I had the liners heat molded. I'm not really sure if the Omegas are the boot for Aconcagua, though, as I'm a little worried my feet will be cold in them. They also seem a bit stiff for the long slogs I'm expecting on Aconslogua...

Last year guiding on Kilimanjaro, I used the La Sportiva Glacier in 44.5. I realize this is a totally different mountain and environment than Aconcagua but I'm concerned about sizing. I normally wear a US 10.5 or 11 and thought the 44.5 Glaciers were a bit too big (not a bad thing on the descent as my toes weren't being too abused).

If I go for something like the Spantik or Baruntse, I'm not sure what size I should order. Any thoughts?

Also, has anyone used the Omega on Aconcagua? How did they perform? Feet stay warm?
