    Venture higher than the birds fly.

    The arrival of summer means it's time to start checking off names on your peak-bagging bucket list, so make sure you have the Salewa Men's Raven 2 GTX Boot when you embark on your alpine ascents. With its winning combination of hard-wearing durability and lightweight performance, the Raven 2 is the ultimate summer mountaineering boot for moving quickly in the high mountains.

    A mix of tough suede and abrasion-resistant mesh in the upper offers the optimal balance of durability and breathability. It's backed up by a Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane for reliable, breathable waterproofing when you're trudging through melting snow. The 3F System connects the lacing to wire that wraps around the back of your foot for a secure, friction-free fit, and the 3D Lacing System breaks up the lacing into three sections so you can customize and fine-tune the fit to your exact specifications. The innovative Flex Collar increases the ankle's rear range of motion for enhanced comfort and range of motion during descents.

    Salewa's stiffest insole offers the support you need for all-day climbs in rough, rocky environments. Interchangeable layers in the MFF+ footbed lets you customize it to accommodate different foot shapes and sizes. CleanSport NXT antimicrobial technology keeps odor at bay when you're going days or weeks without showering. Wrapping-fit sole construction on the Vibram WTC outsole sheds weight without compromising support, traction, or durability.

    This makes my fifth pair is Salewa boots for doing tree work. They usually last me about one year, climbing regularly and doing ground work. These boots grip great when limb walking, and provide a great amount of support when standing in tight crotches. It’s crucial for me to have a stiffer boot for doing tree work for the support as well as for the “feel”. Softer boots don’t cut it when in the trees, stiffer is better. Walking on limbs I like to have a lighter boot that I can run around from limb to limb, the Ravens supply that.

    These are a great height on the feet and have plenty of warmth when working through the Northern Michigan winters. Which, can be brutal at times. I’ve worn the Rapace, hike trainers, Mountain trainers and a winter pair similar to the Mountain trainers that they don’t make anymore. Those all work really nicely for doing tree work but lack a few key things. Height. Warmth. And longevity. All great, but these take the win, hands down.

    With gaiters and often spikes (gaffs) they don’t seem to be painful at all. Anyone who has worn spikes for a short or long period of time knows that a higher end boot makes a world of a difference.

    My only gripe is that they’re easy to over tighten around the ankle, minor setback.

    To sum it up,

    The stiffness. Warmth. Height. Lightness. Durability. Vibrant sole And having metal eyelets to the toes make these my favorite boots for the line of work I am in. I’ll get another pair once these wear out.

    I got these boots for the every day grind of tree work. While my last Salewa Mountain Trainers weren't bad, my gripes were 1-too short, crap like wood chips and twigs would find a way in, and just okay ankle support. 2-without a pronounced heel on the sole my spurs would need to be readjusted in the tree, not cool. But the shoes held together over a year.

    While my tried and true Whites logging boots could hold a gaff and EVERYTHING else thrown at them, they are too bulky for in tree pruning and they just FEEL heavy at the end of the day.

    My new Salewa Raven 2's strike a great balance of the in between. Lots of ankle support, stiff sole that holds a gaff well, well built with great adjustability to fine tune the fit. (I wear them more in week than I do pajamas so comfort is key). They also look great. Its a well built piece of kit that can used for the crossover to arborculture, and worn for the daily grind. My only gripe is the laces are ridiculously long. When cinched tight I have 3 feet of lace that I have to double knot or tuck out out of the way. They fit me true to size and are worn with medium weight merino, and come with 2 sizes of inserts for a true custom fit. Wes (with got them to my doorstep in 3 days, cheers Wes.

    Thanks for the review Justin glad to hear that you are loving them! You can also cut and burn the laces if they are crazy long to keep them out of the way. They keep them long so that you can customize the width a bit and not have nubby laces.

    Amazing boots

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

    These are by far the best built boots I have ever worn. They are very stiff at first but break in nicely. They are rugged and feel very durable. I am very pleased with this purchase!

    Best boot I've ever had!

    The boots, as I expected, fit great right out of the box. I noticed that even with mid-heavy weight socks with a liner the toe box is just a tad roomier than their approach shoes provide. Not a bad thing though. Also, the typical secure heal experience is still there; no blisters. The lace lock hook and cam lock eyelet do a great job of allowing a very secure and customized fit. Those in conjunction with the 3 lacing hooks up top, that if you only lace 2 semi-loose allow for a great hiking/backpacking experience with reasonable ankle support, however, if you lace all 3 securely it gives great ankle rigidity and locks it up for mountaineering with heel clip-in crampons. With decent padding they are ready for both backpacking for several days and summer mountaineering climbs. Great option for a 10-20 mile pack in approach to a mountain that requires crampons.

    Unanswered Question

    I'm looking for a great all around boot (4 seasons) and i have very hot feet and I was wondering how breathable these boots are? Also if they would be great for the summer?
