After a good breaking period of 60+ miles over the months leading to my three days on Mt. Shasta last week, the Mammut Magic did everything I wanted it to do. Some fiddling with proper socks and a good breaking period and I have not had problems with the fit. And, I nearly always have problems with fit to due to various foot issues. From stream crossings, very wet snow conditions, some rock scrambling, even a little bouldering, the boot proved worthy. My feet are two greatly different sizes. Even so, I went up a half size from normal and even down a bit in sock thickness. Which proved spot on, warm enough, dry and comfy. Never got cold, never got wet, never even sweated once I had the correct sock combo of thin liner and moderate sock thickness. Upon returning home, the boot shows little signs of having been worn after plenty of miles and three days of snow and rock scrambling on Shasta.
Thank you Backcountry.com.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Ok, cheesy title. But, the Petzl Glacier was a great choice for my three day trip to Mt. Shasta last week. Light carry weight, whether on the pack or in the hand was greatly appreciated. At 68 cm my choice would have been normally quite fine, but the extremely soft snow ate up that length very quickly. No fault of the axe's design, but on me. Should have gone longer. Post climb inspection shows that the spike and shaft handled all the rock contact very well. The axe is now loaned out and on it's way to the Teton's for a few weeks.
