Thread: Berghaus Kibo Boots

  1. #1

    Berghaus Kibo Boots

    I have read quite a few threads where members are looking for new boots and opinions on which are best.

    After a lot of research I have bought a pair of Berghaus Kibo's . . . . I looked at all the usual suspects, Meindl, Harkila, Crispi etc and concluded that for the money, {175.00} and in terms of features the Kibo's were unbeatable . . . time will tell how well they wear and how long they last.
    I intend pairing them with a set of Yeti gaiters so i'm hoping for a good winter outfit.

    Maybe worth considering if like me you stalk cold wet ground.

    I had the light weight corduru berghaus boots with the yeti gaiters years back.

    They were great, water tight and light weight.

    Hi pal, hope your well.
    I already had the yeti's . . . I tried to fit them to my Brashers GTX's but the bastwards wouldnt fit properly, the sole wasn't stiff enough and the yeti's just distorted them all out of shape.
    I wish I had known about the ebay shop . . . mine cost 80 knicker, although they are the insulated ones.
    I'm heading to the hinds this coming week so we'll see how they perform on the hill.

    Maybe i'm just a pussy, but have you ever bought a product that was so hard to fit . . . . I even broke one of my stick on false nails

    Update on my Berghaus Kibo boots and Yeti gaiters -

    As I type this they are both currently winging their way back to Berghaus . . .

    The gaiters rubber rand has split in three different places and the Kibo boots, as comfy and warm as they were, have lost a lacing eyelet . . . . this combination cost the best part of 300 quid 4 weeks ago and they have already developed faults . . . . . I am not a happy bunny.

    I should have went for the Crispi Stegs I fear !!!!

    Lets see what Berghaus have to say about it.

    I have written a damning report back to Berghaus UK and also the supplier I bought them from . . lets hope their customer service is up to scratch and they issue me with a full refund.

    Cardex if they are faulty you should insist on your money back and by law they must give you a full refund. I think I have read other threads on the law on refunds for defective gear. Perhaps if you run a search on the SD site it will through up past threads. Good luck. ps recently got the Meindle dovre and really impressed
