these are one bad donkey pair of boots, ive taken them to Baker, Rainier and Ice climbing. walked into and across the river leading up to backer and my feet stayed dryed. the trick is not staying still and not staying long. there light weight compared plastic, and alot alot more flexable, but theres always a down side, there delicate when is comes to Crampons and can pierce the outer layer quite easily. comfort is good, but you Must buy one size bigger to alowe for feet to swell and when climbing when you kick the ice so you dont crush your toes.
"First boot purchase and probably my last for many years!"
I have, for years, been renting double plastic Koflachs since I got 'em for free, but those days are long gone, so I hunted for boots and looked no further than the Batura. Since then, I have not looked back.Thoughts (1-10):Comfort: 9 - Everything from ice cragging to mountaineering, to alpine ice: this boot performed well. You may have to adjust the lace tightness to switch between walking and ice climbing; BUT, break these in a before you head to the hills (winter hike?), and get insoles if you can!Weight: 10 - Absurdly light for a super gaiter boot. Beats all the competition (948 g)Warmth: 9 - The downside to supergaiter boots is that there is no liner to remove and dry when you're at camp, so they can be cold when wet and you're stationary for a long time. But once you start moving, it quickly becomes toasty!Climbability: 9 - Get a dialed size and once you buy, fiddle with the lacing.Waterproofness: 10 - always dry against outside moisture
