Failure after 8 - 10 days on the mountain

My first impression of the Ruler was a good one. I enjoyed the easy lacing system however after a few seasons and 8 - 10 days on the mountain the plastic (This could be the problem) lacing loop broke. This of course rendered the $200 boots useless. Burton's response was "We may be able to do a repair after the busy season but it will not be covered under any type of warranty". I own other Burton gear and have had no issue but according to a few of the other reviews looks like the easy lacing system is a bad idea.

I wanted to update this review to say that i have since purchased a new pair of rulers due to the design changes that have been made.
The loop that broke on the previous pair of boots is no long and external piece of plastic but a plastic loop sewn into the leather. (Much more durable). I believe Burton has fixed the weak link in the ruler and i would now recommend the ruler to anyone looking for a semi stiff / light boot at the $200 mark.
