Dave Jacob - Review from Amazon.com
Fremont DaveI have an older version of this boot but it looks fairly similar. I bought these for a second trip to Denali. My first trip, I used my trusty Scarpa Inverno's with Forty Below Overboots. My boot liners were a bit compressed which is not ideal. But my feet were cold especially around camp but even while climbing. I often couldn't tell if my feet were numb or comfortable which is not good. The Phantoms were expensive but I figured they were good toe insurance. I was surprised by the lack of a hard shell. Aside from the sole, the boot uses soft materials for the construction (no pebax shell). This made them very comfortable but still provided great support. I have a wide foot and I had them cobbled slightly to fit better. I also had the sole thinned a bit so I could use them with my AT ski bindings. Even though I got sick on the second trip I think my feet were only a bit cool one morning. Plus the direct connection of your ski bindings and crampons (as opposed to going through your overboots) was so much more secure. The boots come with a water proof zipper which can get stiff, possibly due to the cold we were seeing (-45�F) but they never jammed. One caution, the integral overboot portion of the boot is not replaceable, or if it is, it's a factory job. So if you don't have good crampon skills, you might want to wear a protective gaiter over it to prevent cutting it up. I had a buddy do that. FYI for socks, I had wool on the outside, a VBL sock in the middle and a sock liner on my foot. This allowed me to keep my boots and wool dry for the 3 week trip.
