Mammut – Taiss Light Mid GTX

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

One of the hidden gems I found at last month’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market is the Taiss Light Mid GTX by Mammut.

I spied it as I was walking through their booth but unfortunately, as I didn’t have a media appointment, no one could answer any questions about it.

However, I do know a few things. This Gore-tex lined boot is intended for multipitch rock climbing, via ferrata, classical alpinism, mixed and ice climbing. This means it’s crampon compatible. I also know that it weighs 555g (size 9). It’s built using their Georganic 3D Technology, a three-dimensional cut of the boot, developed directly on the foot. Additionally, it features a carbon fiber missile for rigidity.

This is All-Black model is the Men’s version. The Women’s variant is all White. Imagine a Mid-height mountain boot in all white for use by mountain troops.
