Product Description and Features
This boot in my opinion is best for winter and snowy conditions, as It has a Gore-Tex XCR membrane to keep the wetness out and your feet dry. This boot is great for long day hikes as well as multi-day treks. Co-designed by Ed Viesturs, he wore them on his approach to Annapurna. The boot is crampon-compatible, the BD Contact works well on it, I would recommend that crampon for this boot. Timberland does not have good info on what crampons are compatible, and I just tried a couple different options. The BD Neve also works well. Instep crampons also work well. This boot also has a memory foam around and above the ankle for better support, fit and comfort.This boot also has the standard Vibram soles. These boots from my experience work best in conditions over 10 degrees F. They are pretty tough, have stood up to lots of scree-surfing and abuse. I like these boots, and have never seen anyone else out on the trail with them. Over all, I give these boots a 9+.
