Asolo Eiger GV Boot - Men's

Product Features

For a fast and light objective, in the Rockies or Alps, the Asolo Eiger GV boot does all that is required from them. A carbon/kevlar frame handles the vertical, whether rock or ice, and the mid and outsoles reduce shock on the approaches. Weighing just 1 pound 14 ounces per boot, these are nearly the lightest technical climbing boots around, and may be the lightest for their warmth level.

  • IMPORTANT FIT NOTE. We are finding this boot fits long, consider ordering one full size shorter
  • Carbon and KEVLAR┬« Asoframe has the rigidity necessary for vertical work
  • Polyamide and microfiber uppers offer a high level of abrasion resistance
  • Gore-Tex Duratherm lining for guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection
  • Dual density micro-porous midsole with a PU insert absorbs the shock during a rough approach
  • SuperFabric gaiter zips and straps around the uppers for lace protection from the elements
  • Vibram Mulaz rubber outsole insures traction and edge hold

"Worked under all variety of conditions so far."
Has to replace my other Ultra Light mountaineering boots due to those being too narrow. These are advertised as wide and they FEEL wide. However, I have now used them on training day yo-yo hikes, 5.8 rock, Glaciers, grade 4 snow/ice pack and approach trails with a heavy pack. The results are very good. My feet have not complained at all.

I have not yet used them though for Ice Climbing nor really cold temps. Probably got to 10F wind chill on Mt. Baker @ 10,000'. But nothing colder than that yet.

Post holing up to calves did result in some moisture getting to the socks through the ankle collar, but I attribute that to the poorly designed pant cuff without a lace hook. There is just enough lace at the bow of the boot to allow a pant cuff to be anchored securely.

Tongue did ride down while wearing boot, but there was enough volume in the boot that this was not a problem and was only noticed upon boot removal.
Rating

Yes, I would recommend this product.
