Ideal for the task intended

These boots fit well although the "zipper" style closure on the vamp is a bit tight. I expect this to become easier to use as the insulation packs down. I worn them on a 5 mile hike in very cold conditions and my feet were reasonably warm all day. Used them to climb some WI2 and they fit Black Diamond crampons very well. Lightweight too, easy to hike in and easy to kick with crampons on. The zipper/gaiter system seems unnecessarily complex but I'm thinking I'll be used to it. Plan to use them several times this winter for ice climbing in Colorado.
