    I have three seasons on the Kennetreks w/ 400grm thins they are fine, I never seem to have any problem getting too hot. I do like to use merino wool socks in them as they tend to do a better job of eliminating the slimy feeling I get w/ poly thorlos style. I do feel that the Kenne's tend to stretch a good bit when wet and require retightening. I am going to go w/ some superfeet insoles this year to hopefully make the tighter since they get wet and I can tighten them to the points the eyelets are touching and they are still a little loose!

    Default Here's some stuff - interesting discussions...

    There is so much variability in foot sizes and shapes to begin with, then the different socks or insert combinations people use/don't use makes boot selection challenging to me. But, it's very helpful to know that certain brand/models last.

    This thread discusses insulation issue indirectly:
