Berghaus Kibo GTX Reviews
Reviewed by jim (dundee) on 2010-01-30:
General comments: good warm boot , very easy to walk in, plenty of ankle flex.
original laces are useless as they are too thin and when pulled do not hold on the lace locks.
Pros: flexible ankle, good grip
Cons: lace locks require thicker laces from new

General comments: These are an extremely comfortable boot, and after an initial couple of miles for your gait pattern to adjust to the stiffer sole, they are very easy to walk in. I currently have a dodgy ankle and these are about the most comfortable things i have to walk in - managing well on both rocky ground and higher up in crampons on Glyder fawr where i stayed warm and dry all day. Haven't found the laces to be a problem, but that's not to say the other reviewer is wrong.
Pros: Comfort, warmth, support, don't require a lot of 'wearing in', work well with crampons
Cons: None as yet.

General comments: I found these to be pretty comfortable right away and walked in them for several days immediately without any real problems. They are totally waterproof without being sweaty and using Yeti gaiters kept my feet dry in wet snow all day.
Pros: They are very light, warm and easy to fit crampons to.
Cons: I found the laces needed adjusted several times until "right" each day. Maybe thicker laces would make first time adjustment easier.

General comments: worn this year ( in wales, scotland and sweden) very comfortable, no major issues with laces but can see how they could be an issue if tied in a hurry. to get them right takes a bit of fidderling.
Pros: so easy to wear all day long.

General comments: Superbly comfortable boot - suits my wide foot well compared to say a narrow lasted La Sportiva. Keeps my feet dry and reasonably warm with 2 pair thick woollen socks. But will switch to Palau liner next winter (Southern Alps). Might be too soft for front pointing on extended pitches but good for everything else except heavy rock/ice mixed where plastic or full leather may be better suited. I use G10 crampons with them and they are a natural fit. Will be my go to boot for next buy without question. Up to 4500/5000 metres with Palau liner. Dry quick compared to single leather.
Pros: Comfort. Warmth. Quick Dry. Good choice before plastic. Lighter than full leather. Technically proficient. @ seasons on mine and no problems yet. I love them.
Cons: The Vibram sole may be a tad soft for continued step kicking. I need to trim with box cutter knife to keep sharp edge of boot sole for good steps. However excellent rock grip compared to most other boots. Needs thicker laces but this is very minor problem.
