The boot for ambitious backcountry tours.

When embarking on ambitious multiple-day backcountry tours over long stretches of rolling terrain, you need the stiff support and weather protection of the Fischer BCX 875 Boot. Two Ratchet Lock buckles firmly anchor your foot in the injected Heel Cap while the Thinsulate liner provides the level of warmth essential on long backcountry tours. The 3-pin compatible Vibram sole gives you a firm grip and the integrated gaiters keep the snow from finding a way to your feet.

  • Stiff flex of the BCX 875 provides optimum backcountry performance
  • The 75mm Vibram sole provides excellent grip and stability in difficult off-track terrain
  • Technical upper materials provide reliable protection in wet and cold conditions
  • Thinsulate lining keeps feet warm and is water-repellent
  • Ergonomic cuff with EVA cushioning increases hold and power transfer and is adjustable via the power strap for an individualized fit
  • Ratchet Lock Buckles securely anchor the foot and provide stretch free power transfer
  • Sealed zipper closure system and lace covers eliminate any chance snow will find its way into your boot
  • Anatomically formed plastic heel cap provides an optimum fit
  • Heel fit strap allows the individual to adjust the heel width for a comfortable secure fit
  • Easy entry loops allow for easy entry and exit
  • Integrated gaiter seals around ankle to keep snow out
  • 3-pin 75mm binding compatible

so far, very good

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought them to go with Alpina X terrain (now110's), 170 cm. Attached with Voile hardwires and release plates for lift skiing. Worked very well on the lifts a couple of weeks ago at Timberline including a bit of steep and narrow that would have given me white knuckles with 30 year old leather Merrills and straighter and longer Tuas. In comparison, plenty of control for the user friendly, easy turning Alpinas. Also good control underfoot for touring especially breaking trail in the woods. Very comfortable, dry and warm, the tall cuff seems to keep snow out and perhaps lighter than full on plastic boots. For comfort, avoid overtightening the ratchets. Overall, hugely more user friendly than the old leather Merrills. Four stars; 1) its a several minute job to get them on and off and 2) one review indicates the toe boxes separate from the soles.

Update; rode the lifts a bit last night at Mt Hood Meadows with the Alpinas. Worked good on crappy snow. Boots still warm and comfy. To get them easily on & off, loosen the laces more than you might think would be necessary. New rating 5/5.

Best X-C or light touring boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This boot is a great compromise between X-country and a full on touring setup. I've used them with my Annum skis and tele binding which is okay if it's conservative up and down skiing. I mostly use them with a 3-pin binding on a BC XC ski and they work great. I am 200 lbs and 6' and have had no issues with durability and have used them quite a bit. If you're looking to make turns then use a plastic boot, but for days where a lighter boot will suffice then these are the ticket

Is that the toe lifting from the rubber of the 75mm piece? If so do you telemark with a low or high stance?

How do you find the boots to ski? Got opinions as to whether they will work for longer tours in Scotland with the occasional steep descent? I've been telemarking for a longtime and love the NTN system but would really like an alternative for days where downhill is not so important. Are these worth leaving plastic for?

Do you know how much they weigh?

Sorry for all the questions!

Responded on

I am considering this boot to pair with a lightweight, fairly straight, waxless backcountry ski. I do spend a lot of my time telemark skiing on-piste - fairly aggressively, so I'm concerned about these boots failing on me on seeing this photo. On the other hand, I am not planning on expecting to do what I do with my plastic boot...

I had the same thing happen to me with my Fischer BCx 6 NNN-bc boots! One came off as I was in the backcountry! I had to use duct tape and a arm sling bandage to wrap sole and boot enough to get back out of the woods.Thank god I only had 9 miles to ski out or id have been a goner...

Does this Fischer 875 come in smaller size?

Responded on

It does come in smaller sizes, but perhaps Backcountry is out of inventory at the moment. I would start a chat session (link at the top of the page) with their gear gurus, and ask that question.
