“Greetings from New Mexico "Beautiful Land of entrapment".|I am considering buying this boot. Currently i am using a Montrail Med Wt Guide boot. They suck. Where does this boot fall in the rigitity dept? are they light crampon capable? I live in an area where the "toe dig" is used a lot" can I stand off in these boots with out folding in half? Thanks.”
I went and tried this boot and put all my weight on the toe and it didn't fold in, just gave the natural give it should. It is a pretty rigid boot. If you have strap on crampons the will work, but there is not a big enough heel lip for others.
These heavy duty Alico Summit boots are for Backpacking & Hiking only.||No they will not bend.||For mountaineering, look elsewhere.
