I went through a pair of Rocky SV2's last year and needed a
new pair for this deployment. These boots were absolutely
fantastic. We walk through mud, small streams in around 30
degree weather at night over rocky terrain. You name it, we
are in it. the bite of the grip was also very good on steep
cliff sides but the break-in period was like 3-4 hours. I
thought Rocky's were too soft on hard edges in order to
deliver the comfort side. This shoe delivers that perfect
balance. These boots worked very well at not only keeping my
feet dry, but also warm! The best [$] I ever spent! Thank
you Salomon! I would take your boots into battle anytime!

Just hiked 10 miles in Shenandoah and these boots were
great. 40 degrees F, 4500 feet in elevation gain, several
water crossings, steep rocky terrain and a 30lbs pack with
only a small blister on my heal. The boots have great
traction and unbelievable support. The only down fall to
these boots would be the break in time. Right out of the box
the boots are very stiff. I'm pretty sure this caused the
blister on my foot. I think with a little more time they
will break in well. The bottom line is I love these boots.
Humping 20-30lbs around will be no problem. Get these boots!
You won't regret it.
