A lightweight 3-season boot weighing 1740g (pair, size 11). Waterproof lining; 3mm synthetic upper; minimal stitching; high ankle cuff for good support; very stiff toe box ideal for rocky terrain; very aggressive Vibram sole; animal-friendly. However, the sole unit is bendier that it looks; more stiffness in the sole would be helpful.
Verdict: Superb for walking, but needs more sole stiffness.
