Been using these for just shy of a month now and I couldn't be happier with them. Mostly been on steep hard snow but have run into some mixed sections and they handled it perfectly. I went with the leverwire version, super easy easy to put on. Not to much of a hassle to do with gloves on.

Took this baby out for the first winter camp yesterday, temps dropped to somewhere around -2F(-18C) and I was warm and cozy all night. Got ALOT of condensation in the tent so the bag got pretty wet but nothing soaked thru so I'm very happy with that. Stuff sack is pretty small so getting it down takes some work, zipper gets stuck sometimes but not too bad. I'm 192cm, sleeping with my liners in the long bag wasn't a problem.

Slept inside on this for 3 weeks now and took it out for it's first trip in Teton Park yesterday. Super comfy, packs down small, insulates very well! I didn't feel cold at all during the night.

After taking the tent down it was very clear to me and my buddy who had the best pad, there was no snow on the ground where he slept but you couldn't tell that I'd even been there.

I've skied the factors for one season, everything from 8h resort days with minor hucks to 4h tours and I gotta say it's living up to my expectations. This being my first cross over boot I was very happy with the touring mode 'cause I had only toured in alpine boots before. After trying titans for a few days I realized that the walk mode on the factors isn't all that great but it does the job. I find it comfy on the up and stiff but forgiving on the down, have felt a bit soft in spring time with warmer temp.

Now to the bad stuff that puts this boot at a 3 instead of sniffing at a 5. Like may others I broke the ski/walk mode switch and got stuck in walk mode. I did this in dynafit binders and at the same time the AT sole heal part (where the pegs go) broke. I didn't notice at first 'cause it didn't snap all the way so I could still ski down from the mountain.

When I took the boots to the shop we discovered that the only thing keeping the plastic together was the rubber sole, since the binders released correctly and took no damage I'm questioning the durability of not only the ski/walk mode but also the AT soles.
