You'd rather look down on clouds than up at them, and the Mammut Nordwand GTX Mountaineering Boot shares your appetite for altitude. One of the flagships of Mammut's Eiger Extreme line, the Nordwand boasts a double Gore-Tex construction, tough textile gaiter, and a double insulated carbon shank. Being one of the lightest boots on the market in its class, the Nordwand High GTX Boot is ideal for rapid ascents up mixed routes in the alpine. Its Base Fit technology prevents your foot from slipping within the boot. Mammut's popular Easy Entry system allows you take the boot on and off quickly and easily, without having to remove your gloves. Mammut fitted the full gaiter with a Gore-Tex waterproof membrane secured it with a water-resistant YKK zipper. The double insulated carbon shank reduces the overall weight of the boot while maintaining a rigid platform to push yourself further up the route.
Despite a complete range of technical features, this full-gaiter boot is the lightest in its category, making it a perfect fit for the Eiger Extreme range. It is the ideal companion for high-altitude tours, ice climbing and expeditions, and the patented Base Fit technology helps prevent the foot from slipping in the boot. The newly developed Easy Entry system allows you to put them on quickly and easily, even when wearing thick gloves. The Speed Lace lacing and Power Strap are also glove-compatible and ensure the perfect grip in any situation. The full-gaiter with a water-resistant YKK zip provides protection from snow, water and cold. The invisible technical highlight is the double-insulated carbon insole, for which a patent application is pending, creating maximum weight reduction and rigidity combined with optimal insulation.
