Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Can you get your hands on a pair of alpine Alaska’s to verify fit? These are good boots. You could order your Alfa’s from la cordée in Quebec Canada, might be easier to return that way? If your going for the best 3 pin boot available, have you considered the Andrew rifugio? Sometimes a question pro...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

I created an account on this website just to give my 2 cents on the sizing as well for these. The info. on the website is wrong if you are going by their US sizing chart unfortunately. The chart on their site says size 43 is the same as size 11 US, but when I received my size 43, they are way too s...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

My only gripe are the laces, which could be easily swapped. They abrade bare hands when trying to lace up tight! Ahahahah! SO funny!!! I almost forgot about it... I had bloody hands for a whole week when I first got the Guards... Really! It took me a few days to realize it was coming from the laces...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Interesting Jaybo's were too small and mine were too big. I however wear a lot of euro shoes in euro sizes, like vivobare, birkenstocks, etc... and am nearly always a 43 in those, and with these the 42 fits better. My wife is usually a 42 and it was so big it she had bad heel slip and they gave her ...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

I'll chime in too. These boots are great, excellent build quality, comfort, and warmth. I have to say though, size down. I purchased a 42 for my wife, and a 43 for myself. I am a solid 43 usually, and sometimes a 44, and i am happier in her 42s. Her feet are super wide and super flat, with a low ins...

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

I cannot chime in on performance yet, but i have been digging on the subject and was planning on getting the annums. I should state I have the altai Koms 174, which i love, but the edge is a bit much to put down some times. After spending probably way to much time agonizing i ended up wondering if t...
