When they arrived I noticed they are built a bit to tall and the lacing sistem is not independent from the bottom part to the top part that caused them to over tight above the ankle, fortunately I unlaced the last part!
I used them for first time at a medium mountaineering adventure, 3-4hr hike, on the way up they were warm and comfortable. Unfortunately on the way down as they are a bit roomy they blistered my feet.
I will definitely not were them again for a hike, I will however use the now and then on cold climate non-adventure days.

Using it while walking around Buffalo, New York which gets extremely cold. They are warm and they get good traction when walking on icy/snowy sidewalks. A lot of people here do not salt their sidewalks.
Cons: The right boot pinches my right foot. Unsure if wearing it too tight or needs to be broken in more or if problem will always persist.
