Well, after several backcountry trips I've sadly had to return the Sawtooths back to the retailer. The only drawback to these shoes is they stretched to the point I couldn't get them tight enough not to slip while walking. Perhaps it was only this pair of shoes, I don't know.
Overall, in the begining the shoe fit well, traction was very good. If it hadn't been for the stretch I would still be wearing these. I'm now wearing New Balance 573 trail running shoes to backpack in. A review of those in the near future.
