User Review: La Sportiva Men's Trango S Evo GTX
Materials: leather and Gore-tex
Use: ice and snow covered mixed routes
Break-in Period: What break in period? Didn't need one!!!
I bought these boots to get into more winter hiking and climbing. These boots were completely comfortable for everything from late fall through spring climbing and hiking. I even managed to spend a very comfortable climb on ice when the air temperature was over 60.
I've used them on steep ascents in crampons or hiking in snowshoes without any problem and with the fact that they are so light, it makes a world of difference when having to move quick when the weather turned south. The boots aren't completely rigid, so crampons that can deal with a little flex is not a bad thing.
Needless to say, I'm very happy with these boots...
