by fromWorst boots ever!!! DO NOT BUY. These Boots are absolutely horrible!!! They are NOT WATER PROOF by ANY means. I broke these boots in at home for a week or so then wore them when I hiked The East Coast Trail in Newfoundland (110 miles). First day I walked through some 1-2 foot high wet grass and in less than 10 min these boots soaked up water like a paper towel. Even with leg gators on. They filled with water, and then did not drain. They didn't stand any chance of staying dry in the mud or anything with water in it. And when it did rain it was even worse. I might as well have started every morning of my hike by pouring x2 cups of water in my boots before putting them on. They never could fully dry and where stiff throughout the entire hike (7-days) and wreaked my feet very bad. Ruined my hike. Also the laces do not fully tighten all the way and often come loose when hiking. These where my 2nd pair of Garmont boot I've ever had and will absolutely be my last. DO NOT BUY THESE BOOTS, if you plan to use them for hiking.

by fromnice sale price I use the boots as daily shoes and thru the winter the icy conditions prove to be a bit challenging with such a hard tread. The fit was good, traction in loose dirt great, water proof a plus. The stitching and rubber has not separated in the 3 months of daily use. The boot was a bit stiff, after a couple weeks of wear it has loosened up comfortably. The sale price of the boot makes it a great deal.

by fromfound them to be very comfortable I've only put 10 miles on these this past weekend out in the Olympics but I found them to be very comfortable and to offer good support on a rocky trail. Fortunately, I can't speak to the question of how waterproof they are as we had great weather. Sturdy but light weight.

by fromGood traction on Snow / ICE Use these boots overnight Camping / Hiking in snow in Yosemite last month. Hiked in the foot deep snow almost half of the hike and feet stayed dried. Toe's got cold after some times hiking when shoe were under snow for a while but after cleaning the snow off the shoes, the toe's were back to normal. The shoe gave very good traction on snow and ice. The grip on bolder is also very good.
