User Review: La Sportiva Eiger
Use: summer mountaineering
Break-in Period: 30 miles
Weight: 5 lbs
Price Paid: $275
Unlike most La Sportiva boots the Eiger breaks in fairly quickly. Prior to these I owned the Karakoram( good boot)! The Eiger seems to be a much easier boot to break in. As far as trail walking goes they work extremly well. Comfort is improved over the Karakoram due to the extensive padding. With crampons this boot is the best Glacier travel boots around bar none! On ice they are good for about 1 pitch unless you own Bionic legs. For edging they do fairly well. Duribility what can you say (BOMBPROOF). The biggest drawback to these boots are weight and lots of it. Size you must have these boots fitted!!!!!
