Today we feature the Scarpa Phantom 6000 HD
There are boots that can make it up a peak, and then there are boots that are made for the job. The SCARPA Phantom 6000 falls into the latter category. As a lightweight, trimmed-down version of the Phantom 8000L HD, this mountaineering boot is perfect for high altitude peaks up to 6000 meters in elevation. Redesigned to tell a more sustainable story, we used more environmentally-friendly materials while still offering the same great performance you know and love from our mountaineering boots. With a fully waterproof shell and mid-calf gaiter, the Phantom 6000 can keep out even the heaviest of storms. The PrimaLoft synthetic insulation lining on the inner boot wraps your feet in a warm shell, no matter how fast the temps drop. And with a lightweight Vibram Precision Tech Roll sole with a shock-absorbing midsole, you’ll feel fresh no matter how many steps it takes to get to the top.
