Doesn anyone know how double boots should be fit? I seem to get a little heel slippage no matter how i lace them and i've tried on several pairs. Also, can anyone provide a comparision between these boots and the Baruntse? Which climbs technical terrain better?

These are absolutely incredible boots. I've seen several pro guides wear these, and with good reason, they are comfortable yet probably as warm as a single boots can be. they are stiff, climb and grip well and for a stiff mountaineering boot, they walk really well too. All in all, I can't say enough good things about this boot. The fit seems to be a little wider in the toe box than most Sportivas but it seems like this boot in particular fits such a wide range of feet. Although Sportiva definitely has the reputation of being a little on the narrow side i'd say these boot are right in the middle with a pretty narrow heel but I'm of fan of the fact that these boots fit like a glove!

i went with this jacket over the torch simply because it was cut a little longer and fit me much better. I am 6'4" and lanky and 185 lbs and the L fits me wonderfully. This jacket lacks pit zips compared to the MHW torch and this powershield material seems a little thicker but other than that I love it. The hood design, and is the case on all other arc teryx jackets, is far and wide the best. Expensive but if you want an awesome versatile softshell this is it
