I would recommend these boots for cool to warm climates, and rugged terrain. I haven't tested the waterproofing yet, but I'm sure I will have the chance as I received them just in time for the rainy season. They have a very comfortable fit, nice and snug near the heal and a good amount of space in the toe. The midsole prevents you from feeling rocks pushing up into the sole of your foot. They are lightweight and very comfortable. I will be using these boots on a daily basis for work in rugged terrain.
Very comfortable right out of the box. I wore these for 4 days while backpacking (roughly 20-25 miles). The boots were very comfortable until the last mile hiking down the mountain. My heel started to rub a little. No blisters but it was only the last mile. I do like the boots and plan to wear them on my next trip. I don't think you'll be disappointed. They stayed waterproof in a good 5 hour down pour. Traction was great even on wet rock. The extra padded foot bed was nice with a 50 lb pack on.
