Mt. Washington Summit!

Reviewed by At99sy from New hampshire on Thursday, February 19, 2015
Yesterday I wore these on a VERY much Winter hike/climb up Mt. Washington in NH. Only the second time wearing them. First was at my daughters
ski jumping practice in single digit temps for about two hours. So no break in period, period. The temps were below zero the entire time and -20 at the summit. I wore a liner sock and a pair of heavy sub zero socks and crampons most of the way. The climb was near vertical in some places for several hundred feet. Never once did my feet get cold, my toes had plenty of room and the grip on snow and ice was quite good even before the crampons went on. I wore a paid of Kahtoola K-10 crampons, which are pretty flexible. The stiffness of the boots was perfect for what I was doing. I was wary of these boots due to the low price, but am very impressed with them. I usually wear a 10 1/2 but got these in an 11 and they fit perfect. I got a little heel slip on my right foot but that was my own fault as I let the laces get loose and it was just to stinking cold at the summit to worry about it.
I recommend these very highly.
