Serious beefy touring boot
If you need to charge big and hard while touring, this might be the boot for you. I got them to replace the Skookum and it is a huge step up in burliness. Way stiffer, but also way less flex while touring. I have to have the buckles fully open in order to walk up hill comfortably but I am used to walking in the super flexible Maestrales. If you want a boot for serious descents that is dynafit compatible, because really there is no other touring binding, then this is the boot for you. I would say its ideal for slack country and shorter distance touring. I love how they ski, but don't often choose the weight/walking flex comprimises of this boot.
