Jimmy sanwrote a review of Scarpa Charmoz GTX Boot - Men's on June 8, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought these for my son mostly because he is a new climber and I wanted to save a little $$. I use Scarpa boots for my climbing in the PNW (hard shell and leather) and they are awesome. These boots, however, are terrible and Scarpa should be ashamed for making them. One season and my sons feet are constantly drenched from them wetting through. The construction quality is high but don't think for an instant these are even remotely waterproof because of the "GTX" in the title. Spend a little more, get a good pair of leather boots and treat them with Sno-Seal. Otherwise the build quality and fit are Scarpa legendary and I will probably always climb in Scarpa boots. I gave them 2 stars just because of this but otherwise I would have given them a 1... or 0 if possible. I see these on new climbing students all the time and feel sorry for them. Thank goodness for outdoor retailers and their generous return policies.
