Gaitered mtn/ice boots? Batura / Phantom / Ultra



Just for the sake of convenience I thought all these should be in the same place for easy reference.

Are the Salewa Pro Gaiter Boots comparable to these boots? I like the idea as I make long approaches, but am leery of these new boots.

The Salewa is comparable but I wouldn't buy it for the advantage of a softer sole to walk in. Most that have commented just don't find the differenece enough to warrent the boot, compared to the other lighter weight versions out now.
