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

To start, I am a size 9.5e (mondo wide) and I have been using some Burtons the past 4 seasons but had to go up 10.5 in order to get the width; other boots I was approaching 11. In looking at the pictures of this boot I thought it would be wide enough so i ordered their version of a US 10 *mongo 28*. I've only put two days on them, but what I can say is because of how they adjust and cinch and such it's easy to get the fit just right. My left foot is apparently a smidge wider then my right, and I would always have problems with the left little toe going to sleep and getting a touch of hot foot under the pad (numb foot). I did a few hour resort day following the daughter, no pain. Did a lap of BC at one of my local short runs...again..no pain where as in the past I would be hurting 1/2 way up the skin track. I know they are going to pack out some more, but I am free of slop/slide in my boots, and these seem pretty bomber and warm.
I only have one complaint, and that is it is easy to take off the boot and the liner stay on...there is only a single piece of velcro to hold the liner in. pretty minor thing, just hold my hand in the liner to get it stay in while I pull my foot.

I'll followup and add a more full review to focus on quality etc over time, I was just stoked to finally have some boots that fit all around w/ no compromise.

according to the sizing guide there is no listed "M" sizing guideline for the Junior binding. just XS/S/ Should I assume this is like a Mens Medium? (size 5-8 shoe) ? (I ask because the only size available is S and M, even though the size guide for JR only lists XS, S).

thanks

was not that impressed. I have used this bag in two different cold environments where wetness was involved. Bag is not the least bit resistant to weather. Condensation on Mt Shasta soaked thru half way thru the night, and similar experience in the Smokies in winter as well. The Footwell also does not seem to keep warmth very well. Looking to offload the bag now.

in both cases I was in < 10degree weather. This bag is well suited for dry and 15 degrees.. (and I sleep VERY warm).
