Gear Review: La Sportiva Nepal Extreme

La Sportiva Nepal Extreme:

A very popular, full on mountain boot. They are rated B3, thus are fully-automatic crampon compatible, (they fit Grivel’s semi-auto G12 New-Matic very well), with an insulating footbed and Thinsulate lining. These boots are warm, very stiff, grippy and durable. They use a 3mm-thick, one-piece, good quality leather upper and a great heavy duty Vibram outsole. 

The Nepal Extreme. Note full rubber rand, lace-locker and mid-ankle flex point.

The Nepal Extreme, (slightly ‘browned’ from the Nikwax treatment). Note full rubber rand, lace-locker, front and rear crampon lugs and mid-ankle flex point.
