Scarpa Phantom Tech
The Scarpa Phantom Tech Boot is a lighter (but no less warm), more specialised version of the Phantom 6000, designed for ice climbing and shorter alpine climbing missions. The Scarpa Phantom Tech is mega-versatile in the sense that it’s sensitive and responsive for ice and mixed climbing, but uses the same materials as Scarpa’s expedition boot, the Phantom 8000, to provide the on-point warmth so you can climb in comfort all day. The combination of Primaloft insulation and EVA foam make for the ultimate warmth, while the impenetrable gaiter with its watertight zip keeps water and bad weather firmly on the outside. At around 20% lighter than a traditional leather boot, the Phantom Tech is the ideal choice for the hardcore alpine climber.

Outdry is an evolutionary fabric technology that allows us to waterproof garments like gloves, shoes and packs that can’t be waterproofed by the traditional seam-sealing method. The Outdry method involves bonding a one-piece waterproof and breathable membrane directly to the inside of the outer fabric so that no water can leak in through the seams.
Schoeller, Kevlar and Cordura Outer
A Schoeller, Kevlar and Cordura outer provides the best combination of durability, abrasion resistance and stretch to keep you protected in the harshest of mountain environments. Throw in some Outdry technology and you have unbeatable weather protection, too.
Primaloft is one of the most well-known names in synthetic insulation; it’s warm, compressible, hypoallergenic and retains its warmth even when it’s wet, making it a great insulator in smaller garments like boots and gloves.
Vibram Zero Gravity Sole
The goal of the Vibram Zero Gravity Sole is to be as light as possible while still retaining all the grip and stick that Vibram is renowned for.
Foam Inner Boot and Quicklace System
Scarpa get their new mountain boots to fit so well by employing a super-mouldable EVA foam inner boot and quicklace system to get the most precise and comfortable fit. Don’t worry about the laces breaking either – they’re made from super-strong dyneema cord.

The boot is great, very technical and one of the warmest I have ever had on my feet while winter climbing. The only thing I can not pass is that the upper part is very slim. When I zip it fully it slows the blood circulation to my feet partially. So I usually dont zip it to the top.
