The Scarpa SL Activ has been refreshed for the 21st century and is now more capable, comfortable and durable than ever before.
Everything about this boot screams quality and Scarpas expertise and rich history of boot making clearly shows. The leather is considered gold-standard to many - a 2.7 mm to 2.9 mm tanned leather, offering class leading protection and support in tough mountain environments. Scarpa go one step further, by treating the leather with their HS12 tanning process, resulting in long lasting levels of water resistance.
The Vibram Biometric sole unit is also top of the range. Comprised of a TPU Shank, a two-part PU midsole, offering support and cushioning, and the rubber outsole, it is designed to take on a wide variety of terrains. The deep grooves minimise build up with mud, snow and ice, thanks to the self-clearing channels whilst a grippy forefoot offers excellent traction on wet, slippy rocks.
This type of boot was traditionally heavy and bulky, but this latest update has been on a diet (1720g approx, for a pair of size 42) and ensured that it is comfortable for long treks or more traditional mountain walking. One of the biggest improvements is the improved comfort. Much of this has come from the introduction of memory foam in the insole and in the padding surrounding the ankle. This has led to the Scarpa SL Activ being one of the most comfortable boots in its class.
Other neat details include the innovative Speed Lacing System, a small pulley positioned in each eyelet, ensuring the lacing pressure is distributed evenly across the foot and that the foot is securely held in position. Whilst the Scarpa SL Activ can be used on its own as a tough and durable mountain walking boot, it can also be used with C1 crampons thanks to its B1 stiffness rating.
The Scarpa SL Activ is one the finest boots we have come across. Premium materials, the best construction techniques and some modern technologies have brought this boot right up to date. They are certainly a favourite of our footwear buyer, who has been using his every winter for the last 5 years! They have seen use in Scotland, Wales, the Alps, Sweden and Iceland and have become a stable part of his Winter Kit.
