/ B2 Boot
I had a pair for 3 or 4 yrs. Used in summer, Scottish Winter up to IV, Alps to AD+, Via Ferrata, general scrambling and trekking round Nepal.
Pros: Very comfy and warm, Cheep (compared to other manufacturers), climb ok, pair very nicely with G12's or similar, reasonably hard wearing.
Cons: Bit warm in summer, had a few issues with the sole seperating (cured with lots of superglue, I had pretty much killed them by this point though), Feel a little bit bulky and clunky compared to other B2's.
To sum up, like any boot, it depends on if they fit your feet as all manufacturers fits are different. Would I have another pair? Yes.
Hope that helps
