Voted 5/5

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.

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.
