Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I was surprised coming from SH51's to these that the float difference is very noticeable (Shimano claims 0 degrees). Much prefer no float for power transfer, and these save me from going to SPD-SL, since keeping all shoes and pedals in the quiver SPD is prefered.

Good for a laugh until you get sick of the joke. anyway they seem to be a pretty good do everything glove. A little warm for ski touring on warm spring days IMO. Also I was thinking the tips graphics on the palm side would be grippy but they are in fact slippery. Fits true to size

Obsethed 146 / 117 / 134 mm in 169,179,&189cm lengths.
SideSeth 147 / 118 / 135 mm in 174, 181, & 188cm Lengths.
You might loose a little edge at the waist but should be fine for the dimensions with only 1cm difference throughout. Length wise i wouldnt do it if you are are getting the 174cm sideseth skin for a 169cm obsethed ski (although they may very well still be fine). The other 2 lengths are within a couple cm's, that would be no problem. Even if they are off a bit, you can just trim em to fit so you would be erroring on the side where the issue can be fixed.

They are noticably more comfortable than my T2X's given their Intuition liners and a lot more support which was expected with the 4-buckles and powerstrap. They are also insanely heavier, but great stability. A great inbound boot for sure but I'll stick to 3-buckles for touring thank you.
Scarpa makes quality tele boots through and through as long as you are getting the gear that suits the requirement.

I was surprised firstly at how light it was, and secondly by its ability to break the wind which I was not expecting. Unlike others I really dig the button up front, makes it real easy to rip off at the end of the day. Good style, good fit, and appears pretty quality made. Hand zippers would be nice but by no means a requirement. It doesn't leak down like a siv, but there is some leakage
