Stubai Twin Peaks Universal (2014)

£82.00

The front points on crampons are intended to provide grip when tackling steeper slopes, but on level ground they aren’t really needed and they can be a real menace, as it’s all too easy to catch a front point on your trousers or a rock and trip over. The Stubai Twin Peaks Universal crampon has no front points, thereby avoiding ...

Berghaus Explorer Ridge GTX (2013)

£125.00

Berghaus describes this boot as being designed to be comfortable straight from the box. I probably wouldn’t say it was the most comfortable option, but it isn’t bad either. Berghaus also calls it a 2-3 season boot due to the amount of flex in the sole and that description is accurate, but don’t let it put you off. The Explorer ...

First test: Petzl Tikka RXP (2013)

£90.00

Anatom Q2 (2013)

The Anatom Q2 was introduced in 2011, and it offers exceptional value for money. The upper is all leather with minimal stitching and plenty of stiffness, so it really supports your feet on the most uneven rocky ground. The heel cup and toe box are also the stiffest we tested. As there is so little stitching on the upper, it ...

Zamberlan Steens GTX (2013)

The Steens is a new boot from Zamberlan that offers remarkable performance for the price.

Salomon Conquest GTX (2013)

£130.00

The Salomon Conquest GTX provides a hugging fit straight from the box, which is very appealing. The sole also provides a more stable platform on every step than other boots, which again gives this model an advantage. There’s a rubber toe bumper to protect the upper, but the toe box isn’t particularly well stiffened so it isn’t the best option ...

Mammut Atlas GTX (2013)

£110.00

The Mammut Atlas GTX is a very comfortable boot straight from the box, partly due to its very low weight of just 1058g (pair, size 11). Also, the upper is made from mesh and is very flexible, so it’s able to mould around the foot more easily than a leather upper. Under the foot, a large wedge of cushioning gives ...
