Okay boot for price, but there is much better
This boot was okay for one season of moderate use, but didn't make it through season two. The boot is comfortable, warm, and light, but has some construction flaws. The stitching on the front of the boot (between the black and silver parts) ripped open twice and had to be repaired. On the third rip, I gave up on them. In addition two grommets broke off during lacing. Maybe I was just too rough with them, but I like my boots laced tight. For the price, they are an okay buy, but I won't be getting them again. I've upgraded to Rossignol BC-X, which are heavier and more expensive, but I think they offer much better construction and support.
