The two I am trying to decide on are the La Sportiva Nepal Evo and the Scarpa Mont Blanc GTX's. I oredered both pairs from rei to try them out and see how they feel indoors but the Scarpas are on back order. So when the scarpas get here i will of course base my decision on how they feel to me but was just looking for some feedback. Thanks Roswell

Those boots are pretty equivalent, but fit totally different. There is no reason you should pick a boot that fits your needs on anything other than fit. Wyatt H

Like Wyatt said, fit is all that really matters. Besides, you didn't even say what you're planning on doing with the boots. We could be comparing the Olympus Mons to a pair of Uggs, and we still wouldn't know what was best for your needs. I do love my Nepals, by the way. Dobson

Thanks for the information guys. Turns out that i am not going to go with either one. Since i plan on doing multi-day missions and going above 14k next year i am going to go with a pait of double boots. Looked at either La Sportiva Baruntse or the LS Spantik, but not limiting my search for that. Thanks again Roswell
