With the rockered sole, it makes the approaches to Hyalite almost bearable. Vario Y-technology provides enough mobility in the cuff for serious climbing moves without interfering with the exceptional fit. Vibram rubber bandage reduces shock to the shell and the body joints and gives additional grip on rock. Wt. 5 lbs 7 oz (size 8)

- AAI Guides Choice (2002): "One of the most comfortable plastic boots for moderate routes in extremely cold climate. [...] AAI tests indicate that while these are one of the warmest, most comfortable plastic mountaineering boots on the market, the soles are not as stiff as the manufacturer claims, and these should not be used for steep ice climbing."
