Topic - Rebel Pro GTX - for Summer Alpine/Scottish Winter

John Newbiggin - on 18 Jul 2014
Hi all.

I've been trying on a few different Scarpa mountain boots before I'll be buying some in the coming months. So far I've found the Rebel Pro and the Rebel Ultras to be the best fitting as well as comfiest due to weight. However, would these be warm enough for a summer Mont Blanc ascent? I'm sure they'd do ok in the UK winter too, but some confirmation would be good. I'm concerned they'd not be quite as warm as the Mont Blancs or certainly not the Phantom Guides, particularly when stationary.

I'm leaning towards the Pro due to price/weight, but I've also noticed the new Mont Blanc Pro GTX might be worth a try, and also feature sock-fit like the Rebel Pro/Ultras. Can any one offer their ideas?
