Topic - Scarpa Manta and Yeti Gaiter combo .

SethChili - on 13 Oct 2013
After spending last winter plodding around in my battered karrimor ksb's and microspikes I decided to get my self kitted out with some real winter boots this year . I've noticed that most of the main retailers are trying to get rid of the leather Scarpa Mantas as they have been replaced with the Manta Pro gtx . I have a few questions :
How warm are the Mantas , as they don't have additional insulation ?
Are they compatible with berghaus yeti gaiters for total waterproofing ?
How capable are they for real 'climbing' on snow and ice with crampons ?
Is the weight a real disadvantage compared with lighter boots like La Sportiva trango extreme evo light ?

Thanks
