boot comparison (sportiva)

Postby RModelli » Sun Dec 06, 2009 1:49 am

Hi, and I am sorry if this has already been covered...

But I sold a pair of Nepal EVO, and I am going to buy another pair of boots.. I love the Nepal EVO, I have two (now one) pairs.

I am wondering if the Batura is warmer, practically speaking... I have read about some of what the people have wirtten online..

I am between a BAtura and Spantik, which I know it is going to be warmer..

I want to climb ice and also mountaineering with it.

I should add that I have frozen my toes more than once and they are very sensitive to cold...
Which makes you think i should lean towards the Spantik, however I climb ice (vertical) often.

thank you for the comments,

Wondering why you have excluded the Baruntse from your search?

I saw it and I would prefer either the Spantik or the Batura, however I do like that the Baruntse is lace up...

Is the Batura's inner boot removable? If not, it might not be a good choice for extended climbing trips.

Interesting comparison of the Spantik/Baruntse and some info on the Batura too...

Disregard the title and scroll down abit.. And no the Batura does not have a removable inner..
