synthetic or natural = what's the difference as long as the microclimate is maintained?

Ion, Houdini and Montane Litespeed

How do the Ultras fit?
Are they true to shoe size? I usually buy running shoes (I use New Balance) 1/2 size larger than my shoe size, allows for foot expansion when pounding the ground. Same for hiking boots. Any advi...

Montane Lite-speed
I've used my Montane Lite-Speed in almost all conditions. The fit is quite good, with plenty of room to layer underneath, without being way too big. I'm 6 ft 180lbs, 42 chest and I do fine with the ...
