Hi,
I'm off to Chamonix for a bit of snow hole living at about 3600m and easy climbing next month.
As we will be doing easy stuff, hence moving fast, I was hoping to get away with Nepal Extremes (as I don't own any warmer boots these days).

Questions.
1. do insulated gaiters work, as in add much warmth?
2. will yeti style gaiters work with Nepal's and crampons? - wire front bail.
3. If the answers to the above are yes and yes, might anyone have a pair they want to sell?

Thanks, and any other comments welcomed.

Yetis work fine with Nepals; wire-baled stepin crampons (at least Grivel air tech and g12) are compatible with the pairing in my experience

I have a pair of Terra Nova/Extremities yeti type gaiters which are a bit too big for my boots (44.5) so would sell. If yours are bigger they would fit.
