Acrux AR Mountaineering Boot

Arc'teryx

$479.00

Perfectly designed for damp, cold regions like the Cascades and Patagonia, the Arc’teryx Acrux AR is the ideal companion for climbing trips where a removable liner is a must but the warmth of 6000 meter or 8000 meter boot would be overkill.

The Acrux melds the warmth & modularity of a low-altitude double boot, the waterproof protection of a super-gaitered boot, and the low-volume profile of a single boot to present the ideal tool for objectives at or below 5000 meters.

This boot is an AAI guide Favorite!
