These are a big upgrade from my previous Garmont G-Rides. While touring, I used to suffer from blisters on the inside of my heel, just below the ankle bone. With 3 days on the Primes, no problems!

They are very light, the Boa liner closure rocks, and they tour very well. Going down, they're definitely stiff enough for me - a 200lb intermediate skier on K2 Bakers.

The fit required thermo-molding for me. I wear a US 10-1/2, so I went with the 28.0's. I have medium-wide feet and high arches. Out of the box, the boots were painfully tight in the toes, top-to-bottom. Width wasn't an issue. After cooking the liners with a toe cap, I've got a great fit. My heels do move around slightly in touring mode, but I don't think I could fit into the 27.5's, and I haven't developed any blisters yet because of the superior flex.

The good:
+Light!
+Inexpensive
+Very sturdy in the wind

The bad:
-Must be very well-vented to prevent condensation (which does not go over well with those who aren't warm sleepers)
-No headroom, which means that if there is any condensation (likely), you're getting it on your head & shoulders & back when you sit up. It has even dripped off the front pole and onto my head, waking me up.
-No vestibule, and only room for 1 big pack + 2 people inside.

Bottom Line: My girlfriend won't sleep in this tent. Hoping to take it ski touring, though :)
