Designed for technical mountaineering in cold temperatures and/or at altitude, the awesome Scarpa Phantom Guides sets new standards for lightness, performance and insulation in modern mountaineering boots. Perfectly crafted to meet the demands of high-altitude winter mountaineering, classic mountaineering, alpinism, ice and mixed climbing. The heat retention properties of the Phantom Guide Boots are exceptional thanks to a multilayer construction with different combinations between gaiter, shell upper, inner boot and insulating materials creating a highly effective barrier against the cold and wet. The layered upper features PRIMALOFT® insulation, as well as a felt layer, guaranteeing warmth, and breathability.
