A fantastic pair of bootsExtremely light, easy to take on and off and very comfortable. I wear them for long days on work on the ranch and they are sturdy. But for all the attributes, it’s the fact that they feel greatbon the feet that wins the day for me.

Get you a pairLight weight, comfortable and well built. Have never had a pair of side zip boots before, now I am sold on them. Not sure what a tactical boot is but these sure qualify as an excellent lightweight boot.

Good boots but could use some changesThese boots are very comfortable and so far have proven to be waterproof. I do a lot of bushwhacking and so far the boots have held up well off the beaten path. There is plenty of room in the toe box and the boots stay in place on my feet when walking on side hills, and negotiating rough terrain. I would have rated 5 stars except for these two reasons:
1. They could really use a pull tab on the back of them to assist when putting them on.
2. Merrell could have been a little bit more generous with the extra material that folds in behind the zipper of the boot.
The addition of the pull tab and a little bit more material for the zipper would make them much easier to put on. As it is right now, I have to untie the boots, in addition to having them unzipped in order to put them on. Those are just my opinions, and are definitely not show stoppers if you are looking for a good, comfortable, waterproof hiking boot.

Best boot I've ever worn!Right when I put my foot in these boots I was and still am in love. Tested the waterproof claim and I was very impressed. Literally, no break in period needed. For how well these boots breathe its hard to believe they are waterproof, but so far so good. Love the side zipper, I have not had to untie these boots since I've owned them, easy on and off. Love them!

Big Daddy NY from
Great comfort right out of the Box!Okay, where can I begin,
I have been a Tactical Boot wearer for over 15 years Bates, Magnum, and the last 6-7 years Ridge, Ridge have always seemed to be the most comfortable, but as of late my feet have been giving me trouble and the Ridge are no longer a boot I can wear all day on my feet. (10-12 hours a day)
I bought a pair of Merrell MOAB 2 waterproof hiking shoes (made in Vietnam) and could not believe the all day comfort they provided .
I feel they run a TINY bit small (size 13 Medium) and wish they came in a half size for me but there is no disputing their snug secure comfortable fit !
NOW: I just Purchased the MOAB 2 Tactical 8" boots (made in china) and got to wear them a bit !
Here's what I think ........
SIZE 13 M Black 8"
*Perfect size 13 fit !
*Unbelievable out of the box comfort !
*Width: they feel a tad bit wider than the moab 2 hiking shoes made in Vietnam,
but lace up well with a good snug fit.
*Zipper Side: Is pretty much useless, you have to struggle to get your feet out of them, Never mind try to slip your foot into them, you will have to untie the boot every time. (Ugh)
*8" high: although they are 8" from the floor to the top, if you wear Tactical boots these are not measured the same way as other 8" tactical boots, They must measure top of the arch to the top (ridge 8" air tac, Bates etc. actually measure 10" from the floor)
So they seem a bit short ( no biggie for me)
All that being said these are the mother of all boots...M.O.A.B.
super comfortable, light as a feather, water proof, perfect fit.
