Took a three hour hike in these boots right out of the box. Expected to suffer accordingly but not so. You'll need a good insert but these boots are really comfortable and this is the second pair I've bought. They are as waterproof as advertised which is more than I can say for some other boots I've had. Without reservations, I give these a five star rating.

2nd Pair of Outland
This is my 2nd Pair of Merrell Outland Hiking Boots. I wore out the first pair that I purchased a couple years ago. The boots are fantastic. I use these boots for work in both Cincinnati and Baltimore and never had any issues with these boots whether it is was cold, rainy, or nice weather.. I have had no issues with the boots leaking! My feet aways remain warm and the boots are uber comfortable. My feet are on the narrow side. I have purchased numerous items through altrec and I have never had a bad experience...the customer servious is "second to none". Thanks!!!

Another Merrell Boot
Bought to replace older pair. No breakin required and good waterproofing though I usually supplement. Run small so I always size up. They do run a little warm but easily tolerated based on excellent fit and field grip capability.

Excellent for Suburburban/Camping
I have had two pair of Columbia boots, both were good. These Merrills are great! I put them on and right away noticed super comfortable fitting. It has been three weeks of mud, rain and uneven terrain around the yard and campgrounds. They stil feel just as nice when I put them on in the morning! The water beads off them all the way to to the top of the boot. In additon, I noticed that I dont have to tie them super tight at the ankle to have that "snug" feel around the ankle. The other boots (Columbia) I might have to adjust them three or 4 times within the first hour of putting them on. Worth the upgrade in price for me, for sure.

We live and work in the mountains of Montana and these are truly a four-season boot. I have tried several different boots throughout the years, however, those days are gone. I really enjoy the weight of these and there is no break-in period. I do find that this boot does run about a half size small.
