by fromGreat boot - wrong fit These boots provided great traction and they were very warm. They were great snow boots that did not look like normal bulky snow boots. They resemble a hiking boot more than a traditional snow boot. They had excellent traction on snowy and muddy winter trails. My only problem with these boots was that they were slightly to narrow in the forefoot area. I really wanted to keep them, but they squeezed my foot enough that it caused pain after wearing them for more than 15 minutes. They are waterproof, warm, and stylish for a snow boot, but not the right size for me.

by fromNot for rough woods winter hiking I bought these before heading into rough woods. There, the thorny underbrush took a toll on the webbing used for lace loops. In less than a year several of those loops broke, leaving me unable to comfortably tie on the boots. I have a pair of Merrell Moab Mids (they also have web lace loops) that have endured the same conditions without the lace loops breaking (if only they were insulated, too!). Except for that weakness, I would recommend these boots. So, these would be fine for strictly on-trail, no underbrush conditions. These are not boots for rough woods hiking.

by fromgood traction, warm, needs break in First off, you will see this in some reviews. The top of the boots really dig in to your calves/ankles at first. I was ready to return them, but after about four outings, this has gone away. Traction is great, they look good, are warm and wateproof. So far I am happy with them, but am watching the ankle issue. Also, I think Garmont has discontinued them.

by fromSolid boot, but tough to break in Breaking them in was not as easy as I anticipated. I had read several reviews stating these were ready to go out of the box, but I can only attest that this is partially true. From the ankle down, yes, these are great. Where the top of the boot meets my calf muscle, these are terrible. I wore them the first time for roughly 3 hours and developed some really sore, chafed spots. The second time I wore them for about 90 min, and although a little better, they were still uncomfortable. I'm hoping the 3rd time they'll be good to go. In other areas: Laces = flimsy, recommend new ones Waterproof = excellent Warmth = excellent for my usage (maybe 0 degrees, max) Overall I'm still a fan of these boots and feel they will be comfortable once fully broken-in.

by fromExcellent for winter chores I use these boots in an area of Eastern Oregon that receives some humongous snows and very cold temperatures. I do not hike with these in wet weather so I cannot attest to the waterproof aspect. They are great for walking the fields in the morning when it can be 15 below and driving the tractor loader to clear out the two foot snows. Also excellent for snow shoeing, as the heel holds the rear strap quite well.

by fromWarm & Comfy You can count on Garmont to have a high volume toe box. Wore these for the first time on a 18.5 mile dayhike in the 20 Mile area of GSMNP. Started out at 2,000 ft in light drizzle. By the time we climbed to 5,000 ft there was an ice foundation with 4" of snow and 18 degrees. Feet were always toasty and dry. Upon finishing I did notice the insole was damp. Don't know if there was leakage or foot perspiration from being so toasty warm?

by fromWarm & Comfy Garmont boots have a high volume toe box. Used the boots for the first time on a 18.5 mile dayhike in the 20 Mile area of GSMNP. Started out at 2,000 ft in a light drizzle around 28 degrees. Climbed to 5,000 ft with a under crust of ice, 4" of snow and 18 degrees. Feet were comfortable, warm and dry. After the hike I did notice the insoles were wet. Don't know if there was leakage or if it was caused by foot perspiration?

by fromHappy mountain biker Bought these to use winter mountain biking in Minnesota and to my surprise they have been warm enough as a general snow boot for regular use. Have used these while biking in 10 degree temps with a pair of smartwool socks and flat pedals and my feet were of no concern.
