These boots are AWESOME! I have used these in all types of conditions from snow and ice to summer cliffs, and advanced trails. They are light, and required almost no break-in.
I would advise anyone to buy these.
Got these boots and they are extremely comfortable. However the have HORRIBLE traction on anything wet or slick like river rock, roots, etc. They look like they would be great in snow, but I cant use a boot that cannot tackle wet / slick terrain. My old pair of boots also had Vibram outsoles and did wonderfully in all 4 seasons. I returned these to REI, thats how bad they were. Im bummed, I had high hopes for these from the backpacker review.
