      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Reviews of Kayland Multi-Traction (Women's)

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new.

I need new boots ASAP. My Asolos were alright, but they're old, the stitching is coming out, tread is low, no longer water proof - more like water-wicking, and I think I need a boot that better fits my needs.


I'm not so much of a climber as of yet... although I can see that in my future. I'm doing lots of 3-4 day backpacking trips mostly in the alpine lakes and have been doing lots of off trail exploration that include some tricky ridge traversing and crossing some snow fields that left me really wishing I had better boots.


So I tried on the Kaylands yesterday and they felt really good, but I read a review of Kaylands (a different model) that said that the stiff sole can be an issue when off trail because of loosing sensitivity.


Does anyone have advice to offer? I also tried the La Sportiva Glacier, and they were alright, but the fit was not as heavenly as the Kayland. I'm open to other brands too, but I have a pretty narrow foot and it's difficult to find a store with a gret selection of Women's mountaineering boots that I can actually try on & wander around in.
