Lauren wrote a review of Scarpa SL Active Boot - Men's on September 13, 2014
Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size
I bought these as a b-day gift for the hubs to replace his old Scarpa boots. I have offered numerous times before with the reply of my boots are fine, they are comfortable, have stood up well, and are doing their job. Despite the fact that they were doing the job of keeping his feet protected form the ground, after 7 years of continuous use (and by continuous I mean worn every day for 4 months of the year off trails in the mountains) I decided to go against his wishes and buy him a new pair anyways. He was still skeptical when he pulled them out of the box and felt how light they were compared to his old boots. Day two of wear through a 30 degree slope chaparral field and he could not stop raving about his new boots. They are lighter, heavier tred, and more supportive than his old boots and he is back to having dry feet when quick stream crossings are called for.
