Pros Light, climbs mixed and rock terrain wellWarm, light, very water resistantWarm, light, climbs wellRemovable liner, velcro ankle strap, waterproofLight, versatile, great for rock climbing
Cons Not super warm, overly complicated lacingNon-intuitive lace-lock, priceyLeaks like a sieve, expensiveExpensive, slightly flexibleNot very warm, minimal calf support
Bottom Line Fast and light mountaineering and mixed climbing is where this boot shinesThis boot climbs well, and is also light and highly water-resistantThe G5 sends on frozen water, but stay away from liquid waterThis lightweight double boot is perfect for cold weather technical climbingA good choice for the year-round mountaineer looking for a do-it-all boot
