In my opinion

Four days in the North Cascades, WA. ,I put these new boots through the works. I wore them to work for a few weeks prior, but I don’t believe they needed it. From miles of trail approach to more miles of loose granite talus, steep mud, snow, ice, and rock! Ending result: no blisters, no soreness, excellent friction on rock, light, flexible, breathable, waterproof, felt great in crampons, fit well on my narrow feet. I think this boot is a good rival for La Sportiva's Trango. A little heavier, but a littler tougher I think.

96avs01Great summer boot

Voted 5/5

The Triolet have performed great for me thus far. My first day in the boots I put on 18 miles and didn't find a single hotspot. They are a great summer boot where you likely need to approach, cross snow, and then scramble/climb. I would not recommend them for duty other than in summer as they are not insulated. I fully expect them to be more durable that the Trango given the full leather lower.

Edit: On my second pair. First pair saw ~200 days of use, including ~75 after resole. Love this boot!

I needed a wider fitting boot and boy, did I find it with the Triolet.
I used them from the box on a 12 km hike in the Australian bush.
Now they're not designed for that type of abuse, but I came through it with just one minor hot spot.
The next assignment was a mountaineering course in New Zealand earlier this month.
They were used on moraine, snow and ice and performed brilliantly.
Again, one hot spot, but that was easily dealt with.
I'm not sure about durability but these babies are headed for The Alps in September and I have full confidence in them.
