Good Improvement from the original.
Got a chance to get in these boots and they are definitely a step up from the original. The first thing that you notice is the complete redo of the liner. It works a million times better for warmth, fit, and BOA use than the original. The boa was repositioned and I believe less of a BOA line to coil now too. The cuff flex on this boot matches the bellows flex.
It's a definite good choice for an overall, not needed to really rail boot.
