    Runs in the family.

    Scarpa is a family-owned company that's been designing mountain footwear from its home base in Asolo, Italy since 1938. So, it should come as no surprise that when Scarpa went to work redesigning one of its most successful alpine touring boots, it didn't just throw out what it's learned through the years to start from scratch, but built off a solid foundation to refine what's become one of the most reliable and versatile touring boots in the backcountry. On the surface, the revamped Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Boot doesn't appear to have a lot in common with the original Maestrale, but it's built on the same roomy 101mm last for comfort on the ascent and maintains much of the key features that have made the original Maestrale one of the most popular AT boots in the industry.

    Trimming weight from an already lightweight boot is no easy feat, but Scarpa was able trim over five ounces from each boot—while making the boot stiffer in the process. This is achieved by making the shell from a lightweight Grilamid and reinforcing it with Grilamid LFT, which uses long-strand carbon fiber to increase rigidity and keep weight to a minimum. The full Grilamid cuff is vented to let body heat escape and is backed by an OutDry waterproof, breathable membrane so snow doesn't work its way through to the liner when you're breaking trail through knee-deep powder or setting the bootpack up a narrow couloir.

    The original Maestrale certainly had its quirks—namely, a prone-to-freezing walk mode and hinged tongue that liked to break at inopportune situations—but the newest iteration of the Maestrale eliminates both these issues by overhauling both components. Replacing the old single-hinge tongue with a fixed split Pebax tongue gives the boot the progressive forward flex of a three-piece alpine boot, and the friction-free walk mode takes the 37-degree cuff rotation of the original Maestrale and dials it up to 60 degrees. And since the metal-on-metal mechanism is external, you won't have to worry about the walk mode icing up when it's really cold out. One of the more unique features on the Maestrale is the boot's cable-style buckle that works similarly to a self-equalizing anchor to evenly distribute pressure along the tongue for a responsive, powerful feel during the descent.

    So nice

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These boots only come in full sizes in the shell so if you are buying the half sizes it will only be a thicker liner and I needed to get these custom molded but these boots are so nice the 120 flex let’s you push hard on these boots but the tour mode gives such a range of motion it keeps you in motion! The latch to engage ski mode is so simple that if a problem does a occur it can be fixed easily even though I have not yet had any major problems!

    Super Light Touring Boot

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I got these for my boyfriend as his touring specific boot for longer days out in the Backcountry, as they are super light and have a huge range of motion in walk mode. Scarpa is known in the industry as making the most technical touring boot and the Maestrale is no exception - though I wouldn't recommend this boot if you are trying to ski super aggressive terrain and would look at a boot with a stiffer flex, the Scarpa Maestrale gets him through longer approaches and bigger days more comfortably and faster than any other boot!

    Up and down combo perfection.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    These boots are the perfect combination of up and downhill performance. They're pretty light and super comfortable for long tours, and they're stiff and secure enough to rip turns confidently on the descent. There's a huge range of motion in walk mode so it feels really natural to walk uphill and the soles are grippy enough to cross scree fields and climb icy bootpacks.

    Unanswered Question

    I'm confused by the logo on the shell. I'm under the impression that there is an RS and RS2 with identical color schemes. When I look at REI, I see a boot with the RS2 logo, while Evo and Backcountry show the RS logo, but the prices are all pretty much the same. Is it just a case of out of date photos or is the boot on BC an older model? Thanks for your help.
