Pros: One of the best Vibram soles I've ever seen. Super deep lugs and very aggressive heel cut (for braking on the downhills). Love the leather uppers, the lacing works well, ankle collar is super comfy, and good forefoot cushion.
Cons: Didn't grip my heel securely enough. I seem to have a narrow heel so this is not unusual for me.
Final: I wanted to love it, but had to return. The return was totally painless. Love doing business with Backcountry.

After reading all the reviews I took a chance on a size 12 even though I wear a 13. Very close, but no cigar. Very sturdy, very well made, good forefoot cushion and great fit except for being a tad too short. I'm beginning to understand that I have a D width forefoot with a narrow heel. These boots fit better than anything I have tried so far. Return was painless...love doing business with BC. Talked with a rep who told me they don't anticipate getting in a size 13 anytime soon so I will continue my search, but if BC ever has this boot in a 13, I'm ordering it no questions asked.

At this price point, I doubt you'll find a better jacket. All the other reviewers have pretty much said everything that needs to be said. Top quality design, construction and performance. Super warm, comfortable, and a great looking "old school" soft shell. No space shuttle uniforms here, just high end performance.
