Meindl Air Revolution Lite or Scarpa SLs?
Have a voucher for Jackson Sports, need to use it today or tomorrow - last year's present! Anyway, had Meindl Island Pro for the past few years, but they are coming to the end of their life, one of the lace eyelets has just burst. Might get some repair job and retire them for the occasional crampon use, but gotta buy new ones and these both in my price range and on sale.

The main issue for me would be water resistance. I seem to be constantly standing in water around these parts, bar the trips across the Reeks when the rocks really wear the soles. The Island Pros were great, feet stayed dry in streams. So anyone out there know which might be best?
