So far so good...

Let me start by saying that I base my review strictly on getting these in and trying them on, wearing them around for a while... I haven't yet taken them out and used them in the field (with this in mind I'd rather not have to give stars yet but oh well). I'm only giving this review because no one has offered a review on these yet.
The overall construction of these boots seem to be very good. Its obvious that they'll hold up quite well even considering the punishment they're about to take. The BOA system, which I was initially leery of, seems to work quite well. My initial concerns were in regards to how well the tension would distribute but I've discovered that the key is to tighten them, walk or flex your ankles some, then tighten some more... keep doing this until they get tight enough to suit you. If you're concerned about the strength of the cable don't be, its not going anywhere. These things are rather light for their purpose, no complaints there. They're probably a little more rigid than I was expecting (which is fine with me) but this may not be for everyone. Overall I would say they're a decent deal at the Department of Goods price and an absolute steal at the SAC price. I'm very pleased... but again I caution I haven't given them a true workout yet.
