Stevenc14 from Tri-Cities, TN
Wore these boots on a 40 mile backpacking trip through the
smokies with a 30 lb pack. Had a minimal break-in period
before this hike. Boots run true to size and are a decent
selection for someone with a narrow foot. Boots are very
comfortable and waterproof as well. Would recommend these to
anyone looking for a sturdy but lightweight backpacking
Dennis Taylor from San Gabriel
75 miles on the boot, just got done with a 40 mile trek from
Tuolumne meadows to Yosimote valley including Half Dome " a
little slippage on the shinny granite between the cables
going down". went through snow, water and creek crossing, no
leaking what so ever. what a Awesome boot, a bit hot with my
arch supports that don't breath that good. Note: I had a 55
lbs back pack on as well.
I have had these boots for 2 years now. I wear them for
work. I reside in Vermont and our winters can be pretty
brutal. I moved here from Florida and these boots have been
a blessing. I have walked through snow clear up my thigh and
have had no problems with moisture or being cold. Today I
found a hole in my boot due to a wet sock. I would highly
recommend these boots for any activity you may have in mind.
While they are an insulated boot I have also worn them
throughout the summer through our flood season. I found this
review by searching the site to replace my current pair. I
can truly say I hoped to never have to buy another boot.
Thanks Merrell for making such a great product.
