Have not had these boots for very long so I will report back later. My current impression is that this is a beast of a boot. After having it fitted professionally it feels solid and is very warm.

Love them
I've had these for four years and absolutely love them. I've only used them in the lower 48, but I've done several winter climbs in them. They're warm, running-shoe-comfortable, and very durable. I've never once had cold feet in them, even in single digit temps. I have no complaints at all. Worth the money.

Great winter boots
Ive used these for winter climbs in the sierras and have never had cold feet. They are a bit heavy but they are built like a tank, worth the price tag. Would definitely buy again.
