General comments: Pretty average actually. Wouldnt say it was the best pair of boots that I have owned, but I bought them in a price bracket that I could afford at the time. Ruined mine in about a month due to lack of cleaning and its really marked the material. Keeps my feet dry but they will be getting replaced sooner rather than later. Will probably opt for a traditional leather boot next time, much more versatile for fishing in. Seen very similar bergaus to these go for much cheapness on fleebay.
Pros: Tight, lots of eyelets, good long laces and tight fit.
Cons: average boots

General comments: A stonking heavy duty boot... If you change the insole!
Picked these up in a sale as my first crampon compatible set of boots. The uppers (I have the fabric version) shed water well and the soles grip like there's no tomorrow. The high ankle gives solid support, but lacing needs to be done carefully to stop pressure points forming.
The only problem after my normal walk in (9 miles on a sustran's trail) was the bottom of my feet felt tired. A set of sorbothane double strike later and they bounce like a pair of pillows! The lacing issue is on the ankle cuff where straight across pulls too tightly across my ankles, cross lacing (up to the top eyelet and down to the middle) works a treat.
The camber on the boots is good, and the managed 24 miles in 2 days in the Lakes without excessively tiring my feet out. They roll naturally, and hence there’s none of the heel strike I’ve got with other “rolling” boots.
The grip handles everything from peak district mud through to Finnish snow and ice (with and without crampons).
The toe is tough enough to kick a step in snow, without bruising my toes! The foot part easily handles the straps of my G10’s without compressing down, making walking with the crampons almost natural.
Pros: Good solid dependable boot
Cons: lacing can be awkward. Insole needed changing
