The definitive hill and mountain all-rounder, the Scarpa SL Activ delivers the perfect combination of support, flex and protection.
As the latest generation of the SL - Scarpa's legendary 3-4 season boot - the SL Activ has some pretty big boots to fill. Not to worry: the SL still offers fantastic support and grip on demanding terrain, but with added comfort for multi-day use. Sturdy enough to take a walking crampon when needed but flexible enough to use as a hill walking boot, the SL is a stunningly versatile piece of kit.
From the stiffening materials within the boot which provide tailored, unobtrusive support, through the shape of the padding around the ankle, right down to the design of the lacing eyelets to ensure the boot wraps securely around your foot, Scarpa's attention to the comfort of your feet in the SL is incredible. As well as providing comfort and support, the SL uses sturdy Sherpa leather and sports a high rubber rand for dependable, durable protection.
If you're looking for a boot to take you from Snowdonia's craggy peaks to Everest Base Camp, look no further than the SL.
