Welcome to the joys of moving quickly in the mountains. If you like the Kaptivas, I bet you’d like the Bushido. I use it for anything that needs a crampon, and my Leopards fit really well on it. It has a stiffer sole that’s perfect, but it’s still a really comfortable shoe on trails too. The GTX version of the Kaptiva is really good, and I wear a pair all winter, but the hard part is keeping snow out if you’re on glaciers or lots of snow. Once snow gets it, it’s harder to get out, as you’d imagine. That said, it definitely is warmer, and the mesh is tighter so I do like them, especially that model. I don’t know how they made it without creating a stiff brick like so many other GTX shoes I’ve tried, but it’s great.
Hope that helps, and have fun with your adventures next year!
