Gear geek maxed...the new Batura 2.0

I am still in the middle of my write up for these but if you wonder just how far real gear geeks go to improve a product take a look here.

How much does the new Batura 2.0 weigh as compared to the Trango Extreme Evo?

Yeah, this is the boot I'm waiting for. Almost bought the old ones but heard these were coming out this fall. Hopefully, they addressed some of the durability issues with the liner and zipper.

Cooper, the Batura and Trango are only off by a few grams depending on size...in a 12 less than 50g, less for the smaller sizes.

Brian, there is no longer a zipper problem. I used this same zipper and velcro set up for years and never had a problem. I'd expect the same here. BUT sadly ...not this fall! These won't be out till next Spring, so Spring of 2012

Dane,

Do you have any information about a new version of Phantom Guide? I want to buy them but I'm worried that a new one would come out a month later, as it usually happens with gear.

Nothing on the Guide till after the fall of 2012..so it will be a while, at least another full year if not more.

What kind of comparison is there to these and the Scarpa 6000?

Dane said...

No comparison. One is a single boot the other a double.
