Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Long backpacking trips on steep, rocky terrain require that you have the right footwear. The women's Scarpa SL M3 hiking boots are built to take on the longest, toughest trails. Sherpa HS12(R) full-grain leather is extra thick and durable to support serious backpacking; HS12 tanning process is particularly resistant to scuffing and wetting out. Leather uppers are silicone-impregnated to deliver exceptionally high water-resistance. Taibrelle(R) premium nylon lining, produced by melting, delivers higher strength and durability than woven nylon. Ankle sections are constructed to flex for a balance of comfort and support. Polyurethane and EVA midsoles provide ample cushioning for all-day use. Polypropylene shanks give the boots enough stiffness to handle heavy-duty backpacking trips. Scarpa SL M3 hiking boots have Vibram(R) M3 lugged soles that offer good traction when you're ascending and descending steep trails. Closeout.


Recommended by Outward Bound and NOLS, the Scarpa SL M3 is a premier backpacking boot with a full-grain leather upper, Vibram traction, and a combination PU/EVA midsole for long-lasting comfort and stability.


Scarpa's SL M3 is their premier backpacking boot for long trails, heavy loads and hiking in rough terrain. With improved leather-lined tongue and cuff for comfort, as well as an improved M3 all-terrain sole, you're going to find these boots to be tough, trail-loving creatures. This technical footwear is fantastic for everything the trail can throw at you.
