Bought these for a West Coast Trail trip, a trail notorious for eating through boots. After 38 miles, a piece began to delaminate, but only after several miles of slogging through saltwater shelves and sandy and rocky beaches. I'm taking these to Patagonia in the hopes of getting these repaired (I...

...however if you go into the forest very far in summer (or winter) be sure to be prepared for over-the-top debris from getting into these low-top and open designed hiking/walking shoes; I'd suggest a medium height gaiter with shoelace hook and velcro, with some water resistant properties... since I use mine for almost daily wear in and away from urban environs, the tread can be great on slippery conditions yet carry loads of stuff in their soles to the indoors...
when walking through the woods to check out a forest fire a mile away, with no clear path to follow, I found these shoes to fill up with mossy bits, spruce needles, branch parts, leaves, etc and luckily I missed the swampy puddles of over 4" deep; I was in a place where gaiters would have been necessary.... while I have two pair, I hadn't worn any because the fire incident was an unplanned adventure. So I didn't carry a jacket or insect repellent; but did have my small panasonic Lumix camera, so captured images of the forestry helicopter when it arrived on scene, dumping buckets of water on the island fire there.
These are fine if one never tried to tighten the upper fast-hook laces, or if these hooks never catch on debris because they could be pulled off. I have three pair of Patagonia boots, two are 'winter' wear and one of those is as-new in their box. These were worn most of last winter except when I shoveled roofs on two houses 100 miles apart. The tops would allow snow &/or other debris inside, so consider fitting a pair of gaiters to compensate...

I bought them as a light wet conditions back packing boot. Loved to wear them as they were comfortable out of the box. Then they got the test on a two day back pack into Sequoia Kings Ca. to Pear lake in November. I wasn't expecting a foot and a half of snow. the leather got dark from absorbing moisture, probably needs water repelant. The low ankle let the snow in too easy. After the trip the metal shoe lace hook on top just fell off for no reason. That was a deal breaker. They are getting returned.

THough I didn't like the fit at the ankle initially, the light weight and fit are great. I bought these as a winter all-around boot because of their light weight and waterproof construction. It's still dry and warm here, so I get a break-in period (perfect). and I think they are better than I expected these boots might be. TG for technology! My only issue is that dirt/mud will be annoying to take indoors as is usual with vibram soles. Not so good in dirt/mud/slush/etc.
