My wife and I got pairs of the Tibet. We did a holiday hike immediately to get some dirt on 'em, and have since put many miles under the tread.
The kids got the GTX for 9 and 5. Our daughter Luna came along in February, after hiking with us in womb for many miles.
This August we hit the Rushmore Natl Forest, and all the neighboring parks. The kids set and reset many records, including longest hike in a day (5, then 8+ miles with packs), highest climbs (Ol Baldy, then Harney Peak), went caving with sure feet, and hiked between rock climbing areas galore!
We had dry feet, zero blisters, and were complimented on the family endeavor constantly. The boys explored all over while we took care of our 6mo old daughter, and ended up climbing another mountain, shredding straight up some class 4 just behind the national memorial with me, while mom and Luna rested.
We returned home exhausted with two new Junior Rangers who had tons of stories to tell at school!
