c2summit wrote a question about La Sportiva Batura 2.0 GTX Mountaineering Boot - Men's on January 24, 2014
I know this is meant to be predominantly a mountaineering boot with an ice-climbing focus, however I'm wondering how well it would be suited for general mountaineering in the lower 48 when compared with the much heavier (in my size, a full 1/2 lb. per boot!) Nepal EVO's? I'm not doing any ice climbing (yet), so it's typically just rock & snow. Obviously the Nepal's are more durable due to materials, but I'm not out there everyday so wondering if the lighter/warmer Batura would be a good choice.
