Well , as I'm sure you've all seen , I've been putting a few wanted ads on the sd , I needed some new boots . After speaking to a few guys and some people I'm booked up to go stalking with this year , the final word seemed to be meindl . I will be using these a lot , not just for stalking but also lambing duties and hiking and they'll be paired with berghaus yeti gaiters . I went to the shops earlier and tried on some meindls , some lowas and some scarpas , the lowas were £160 , the meindls were £190 and the scarpas were £90 reduced from £220 . I'm lucky enough to have big feet meaning I can quite often get a bargain due to them being a less common size .
Long story short ive taken home the scarpas , they were crazy comfy and although not goretex , they are full waterproof aslong as you wax the leather a few times a year . I was sceptical but the guy proved it with a 3 minute submersion test !
They are scarpa sl 's . Hope they do me well and I don't regret going over the meindls ! The scarpas just looked and felt so much better made .
