- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 46
Love these boots, this is my 3 rd pair of Scarpa Charmoz, and it is a winner. Not too heavy yet strong and beefy, my feet are comfortable and warm. Generally, I hate buying boots more than any other piece of gear. Despite mountaineering for over 50 years and being aware of all the sizing/fitting tips, sometimes it is hard to know if the size you got is too big or too small until after many a mile on steep terrain. So when I got my first Scarpas and they fit great, I have stayed with the same. I do a lot of off-trail cross country mountaineering routes over very hard terrain in the PNW and they do hold up, I just wear them out over 2 or 3 rough seasons. And I love the new color of orange this year! Lastly, my new pair arrived only 3 weeks ago and I used them right out of the box for a 5 day mountain trip, no blisters.
