Review in progress.....
Took these sweet new boots out for 4 hours in the hills in moderate terrain. Legit old school boots. No doubt more heavy than a more modern style/material boot. I appreciate the real full grain leather. Seem to be very durable. Comfortable, but stiff out of the box.
I have now taken these out for a two 6 hour hikes over very rough terrain and have been quite satisfied. Still notably heavy but great support. Very comfortable. Still have not gone with anything more then a day pack but I have no doubt that they could handle a heavy load.
I got mine at Sierra Trading Post. They often have the best prices, but availability is sporatic.
