Rated 2 out of 5 by morbidparsnip Comfortable, great fit, NOT waterproof!
Bought these boots for a trip to Peru, since I planned for hiking and rain. They fit great right from the start with little to no break-in period. Light weight and very comfortable, also offered good protection climbing over rocks, and stubbing toes. The only problem I had was that these are NOT waterproof. Water-resistant, yes, but not waterproof. I was caught out in the rain a few times, and while I started out pretty dry, in persistent wet conditions, these boots soaked through, leaving me with wet socks and feet. Unacceptable in a boot sold from Merrell as "waterproof". Definitely not.
