Re: Alpina Alaska NNNBC

The shoelaces on my Alaska BC boots is worn out now after over 2.5 seasons use. They are rather nappy and after closer inspection I descided new laces was needed. The laces are 200 cm long, and I found nice black-darkred laces by Lundhags that worked fine as replacement, that has same type of materi...

Re: 2015 Åsnes Combat NATO

Hi, I was out yesterday also with my Combat Nato. A 30 km tour. The snow was not quite so deep most of the time but on some places as deep as previous tour. When my Combat Nato did not sink so deep (in the not so deep snow) they really shine and you can move forward in a good speed. But in very deep...

Re: Alpina Alaska NNNBC

Hi, My expereince with my Alpina Alaska BC during season 2017-18/19. When new they are stiff and that is little annoying, but they will soften as they are used but it will take a while before they get softer. Very stable in all directions for the foot. Not so heavy in my opinion, at least the weight...
