Good but the heel detail is designed to blister!

Used for 2 weeks alpine climbing (summer 2019).
Good grip, lightweight, supportive, good B2 crampon compatibility .... But ....
There is a coarse line of stitching which runs up the centre line of back of the inside of the heel which (for me) is designed to rub and quickly cause blisters.
From early on the first day I was applying Compeeds.
Week 2 I bought socks with integral heel protection.
Different stitch design would help .... and some cushioning to bury the stitching would help (at a cost of increasing weight).

Advantages
Waterproof
Good grip
Robust
Price/performance
Disadvantages
Causes blisters
