New Scarpa SL Activ(U.S. realease late 2011/early 2012)
This is the newest version of the Scarpa SL coming out in fall 2012. It is already available overseas from what I have seen. I like the rand but thats about it. It also has a new sole, lace pulley system, and a few other doo-dads. They 86d the tongue hook which I think is a mistake. Nevertheless, they kept the gore-tex out of the equation. I just like the look of a classic bruiser. I wish they would just leave well enough alone. The current SL M3 is an awesome boot. Not to say that this model may be an awesome boot. I really like the M3 sole on the current model. I may check this one out when it hits the market. Its growing on me.
