I had a pair of the old Scarpa Attack boots years ago. When they finally wore out after thousands of miles of rock, mud, ice, sand, etc. I went with another leading brand. I've been looking forward to them wearing out so I could get back into some Scarpa boots again. It's been a few years, and I was a little disappointed to see that the Attack is no longer sold, but as soon as my foot was in these boots all my fears were gone. These things are comfy and even tougher than the Attacls were.

The SL Activ is a beautifully made backpacking boot. The sole, which is the same as in the Zanskar and Kinesis Pro, is very stiff and flexes only slightly at the toe - definitely more suited to backpacking than day hiking or everyday use. There is a bit of a rocker in the sole though I have tried similarly stiff boots with a more comfortable gait. The last shape is exceptionally comfortable for my slightly wider than average feet. It is one of the roomier boots volume-wise that I have tried on. Whereas I normally wear a 46 in hiking boots, I ordered the 45.5 knowing they are spacious. I think the sizing was perfect length- and width-wise, but I really have to cinch down on the ankle lacing to keep my heel down. There is generous padding within the boot and around the ankle to reduce the chance of hot spots. Another thing I noticed is that the ankle area is very flexible relative to the rest of the boot, which takes some getting used to. If you are looking for a lot of ankle stability/stiffness, I am guessing the Kinesis Pro or Zanskar would be a better choice based on the upper construction. On a related note, the leather in the ankle and tongue area is somewhat noisy as it flexes and rubs together, in case you were hoping to sneak up on any creatures in this boot. As I understand it the Kinesis Pro is a very similar boot but with a Goretex lining. The Cocona lining in the SL Activ seems to breath well, and based on what I read the thick one-piece leather upper is pretty water resistant if well-maintained. Overall the sole was stiffer than what I was looking for, otherwise I really loved the fit and comfort of the SL Activ. It is one of the most foot-friendly boots I have tried on, gives the impression of extreme durability, and looks like a work of art. To be honest it was a little hard to return.

I'd also recommend: Asolo, Lowa, Hanwag, Mammut, Salomon
