Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: 44.5

Picked these up midsummer (not misommar thank god ;) because they were on sale and I like the design and concept. It's been way too hot to actually wear them so I can't honestly give a complete review but can offer a few initial impressions. They are definitely not subtle I dig the looks but they can be a bit loud if that matters construction seems great, as I'd expect e scarpa, they are definitely stiffer than my kailash gtx which was also expected, swapped out the usual crappy oem insoles for something better and they came to life so that makes me hopeful they'll be able to hike and climb in as advertised.
I will say they do seem like 3 season boots but by that at least from NY standards, I mean fall-winter-spring, not summer as they are somewhat insulated and just too hot for +85 F temps, the built in gaiter sock retains heat as its a tight fit at the top so I think not for hot weather and I got a half size up as usually so to accommodate thicker walking socks and the internal felt already roomy so a summer weight sock would leave my feet sliding around a bit too much.
A HUGE peeve I have is the stupid lace tensioner on these it's WAY TOO SMALL AND FRAGILE to be of use my less durable, it's a joke tbh, popped apart just loosening these to get them on, doesn't fully tighten and cannot be used w gloves in cold weather its also such a thin delicate piece of plastic I just don't see it lasting even a month of real usage. Wrote to scarpa about it, and honestly seriously considered returning these just because of it ... bit decided to risk it, probably will just tighten laces as best I can wout it but I do fear I may regret decision to keep them because of this really grossly misdesigned aspect of an otherwise really interesting and promising boot. Time will tell...I guess. I told scarpa if they do redesign this part to make a retroactive piece early owners like me can get and install on boots w this as a replacement I hop they listened...
Will try to wrote better review once I've actually put some steps in these after an Adirondack trip planned this fall.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: 32

Bought and returned, green color is much darker and closer to brown than what's pictured also runs kind of large in the waist, I returned before using but otherwise pants felt great like they'd work really well as warm insulated winter or late fall hiking/climbing pants, snowshoeing, etc. If I were to reorder id size down at least 1 size maybe even 2

Best jersey ive worn so far, better than previous assos, castelli, rapha etc. Cut is slim and close for sure but it hugs your body perfectly without cutting off circulation or making awkward lumps or bunching. Im 6'1, 170 lbs use size M its great. Rear pockets are surprsingly large and roomy but wont sag or pull jersey down when stuffed full and fabric feels very strong despite light weight. Breathes like nothing else ive ever worn puts others to shame.
