Matt Morrellwrote a question about La Sportiva Glacier WLF Mountaineering Boot - Men's on May 17, 2012
we are looking for a wildland fire fighting boot and the glacier has been recommended to us through a hot shot crew member we know. anyway, it doesn't make sense to us that 400 grs of thinsulate are used in what is the fire fighting boot. Seems like summertime fire fighting in the hot forest etc would call for a boot without thinsulate. any thoughts on this? i have a pair of danners that i hunt with in the fall and winter that are 400 grs of thinsulate and I where them occasionally working in the summer..............and they are hot as heck. my concern is the glacier is too hot for wlf. i would like some feedback if anyone has any.........thanks!
