Was looking for a good pair of winter haunting boots for a reasonable price, and came across the Revel IIIs. Read the reviews which appeared to be good and fair, and ended up ordering them. After owning them less than two years and only wear them seasonal but easily put in over 100 miles during hunting and carry a heavy loaded pack, the sides blew out them. Also, I found them wider than expected, uncomfortable, and could never get them to break in as much as I hiked and hunted. They never had that snug comfortable overall feeling. They were nothing like my Lowa's which I have had for 7+ years, which fit like a glove. I did however and reach out to the warranty and customer service folks here at Keen and they where helpful and took care of me, and greatly appreciate their time and help. Though the folks here at Keen as mentioned were great, I will be going back to Lowa's and spending that bit extra. I am just not overly sold on Keens when it comes to long miles with a heavy pack on my back.
