I am a tree guy, and work in all weather conditions in all sorts of New England terrain. I've been wearing Carolina boots for the past few years, but I am not really brand loyal. From what I've seen Carolina boots tend to produce a better product than their competitors (Chippewa, Georgia...) for the price range. The tread wearing out after about a year (of very heavy abuse), but they are resoleable.
These are an excellent boot for the price, break in was the typical two weeks. I can't say that the water proof claim is 100%, but I haven't found a boot yet that actually is. These boots are sturdy and reliable, oh... and very comfortable. And on supercasuals they were $30 less than anywhere else,retail, Amazon, and the like. Excellent customer service. For the price these boots are top notch, even comfortable to climb in.
BOTTOM LINE: recommended
