I take good care of my gear, but also play a little rough and these have held up nicely. I use them for ice climbing and mountaineering. They're perfect for the lightweight fanatic and durable enough for moderate adventuring. They only thing they are lacking is a replaceable instep strap, but if you added that it would compromise their light weight. I found them true to size and female specific. I love 'em.
If you want bombproof, buy the OR Crocodiles. The Vergalas are exactly what they say they are: light and functional.
