Fantastic Jacket
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Great jacket, very light, rugged, has a large and functional chest pocket and an athletic fit that allows for many layers underneath. Picture is of 17K camp in Denali, here I had a t-shirt, expedition base layer, softshell jacket and heavy hooded fleece underneath. I'm 176cm tall and weigh 80 kg wearing Medium size.

Hi, spent over a month in Bolivia last year with the Batura EVO, climbed Huayna Potosi, Condoriri, Alpamayo Chico and Illimani. Only on the final stretch of Illimani at around 6300m I felt a little cold on my feet. But the Baturas are so much lighter than the plastic double boots everybody else was wearing. I would definitely recomend them for Bolivia. I met a guy that was climbing with the Scarpa Phantom 6000 in Huayna and he was very pleased with them too. I supose the Scarpas are a bit warmer then the Baturas, also a bit less stiff. Both probably will fill your needs.

I trully loved these crampons! Climbed from long snow plods to extremely tecnical mixed ice and rock routes to steep 60-75 degrees nevé and ice, from Patagonia to the Alps. Always felt extremely safe. With the automatic system I could put them on and off with only one hand and gloves on. And once they were in they would not budge. These are a lot lighter and with a lot less fuss than the more technical ones which don't really perform on snow. One of the most versalite crampons I had ever come upon. When these babies got recalled I just could not believe, I ended up waiting almost 2 years for the new version to be released before trading mine in. Still waiting for the new pair to arrive (I live in Brazil, not the #1 ice climbing country...), which should take another month, but very excited to see some brand new Sarkens on my boots.
