Anyone here use the Scarpa Phantom Lite Boot? STP has them for cheap so I ordered a pair. I presume they will be good for day climbs in the winter in the Sierra. Will they be too warm for Sierra gully ice in the fall? What experiences have people had with them? How do they fit?

Save your money and buy the newer one. Worth the effort imo.

What is so much better on the newer Phantom Guide?

Pretty much a totally new boot. Lacing system and fit are much much better, Gaiter and insulation are better as well. Lower profile and a better technical boot imo.

I spent most of the day yesteday working on a review and pictures of the Phantom Guide. It will be up this week or next @

Earlier post from the OR show this winter. Review will be pretty comprehensive and making direct comparisons to the La Sportiva Batura if that helps.
