Meindl Nepal Pro
Use: lightwieght mountaineering &rough trail w/heavy pack
Break-in Period: several days
Weight: quite heavy
Price Paid: £140
I have founds these boots suitables for all activities, from summer days in the Lake District to month long treks in the Himalayas. Very comfortable due to padding in the ankle areas expecially. Quite high and rigid so give good foot and ankle support. Quite a broad boot and also heavy in comparison to some equivalent boots e.g. Scarpa M3's.
Materials: Leather with Gore Tex lining.
Use: (Very) rough trail
Break-in Period: Just a couple of miles/days
Have them for 7 years now! I took them into rainforests, Alpes, Snowdonia (Wales) and wear them on my motorcycle, all year trough.
Repairs sofar: New soles and a few stitches, I hope to have those superboots for another 7 years!
I climb and hike with them.
Use: rough alpine (Meindl C class, see meindl web site for details www,meindl.de)
Break-in Period: in my experience, a couple of hours round the house plus 1 day light walking
Weight: havent checked, but not excessive
Price Paid: £140 (Jan 2000 in Aviemore, Scotland)
Very comfortable. Those sold in UK have broad fit for shape of average British foot.
Most comfortable fit I have yet found with a boot. Takes crampons without any discomfort to achilles tendon.
