      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!

Evos or Koflach Degre Plastics for Cali Winter

Recommended Posts

I have a new pair of Nepal Evos and some plastic Koflachs Degrees i got off ebay for like 120. Obviously the Evos are way lighter and more manuverable and the plastics feel a big sloppy, but I'm not sure about how warm the evos are as I've never had them out in winter. I know the plastics are super warm (though you sacrifice a bit of precision). what do you guys think? which would you take up winter alpine and snow climbs in cali? specifially shasta and palisade climbs. thanx

Both boots are warm enough. The Koflachs are likely over kill. But it really depends how much time out you are planning to be out. Couple of days and the Nepals should be fine. Any more than that in cold weather and I prefer a dbl boot simple because you can dry (or at least try) them out every night.


Evo is an exceptional cold weather/ moderate winter boot though and doesn't absorb much water in my experience. You might find they work well for your intended needs past a couple of days.
