Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Having spent nearly 10 years on the original Impacts, I had a certain set of expectations for the next generation. As one of the few who are stubborn enough to ride big days in the woods on platform pedals, one of my biggest complaints of the old Impacts were their spongelike nature. My ski boot dryer got more action in the summer time than winter months with one or two creek crossings in most decent rides. Truly enjoying the water resistant nature of the new Impacts, having spent rainy days in Oregon and crossing mountain streams in the Idaho backcountry without my feet spending the entire ride feeling like I had a pair of sponges on. The fit of the new Impacts stays true to the original fit, and the lighter weight (albeit not much) is much appreciated. Though I haven't needed to test the new toe box construction, it definitely appears and feels sturdier than the first generation.
