Review: Scarpa Maestrale RS

If you’re looking to upgrade your ski-touring boot, look no further than the Maestrale RS from Scarpa. With a 130 flex, this boot is burly enough to handle even the most aggressive lines; but at just three pounds, it’s light enough for southwest Montana’s notoriously long approaches. The upper cuff is ventilated and waterproof, meaning you can dump heat while keeping snow out. They may not be cheap, but that’s what credit cards are for.
