Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this boot last season and I have used them both inbounds and lots of slackcountry in Colorado. They provide the stiffness neccessary to charge steep lines inbounds and enough motion for some uphill on short tours. I haven't used them on a lengthy tour yet, I would say they are a bit more stiff than other AT boots but do provide enough motion for a comfortable ascent. The liner is a huge upgrade from the Quest 110, get the 120 and thank me later. If you are 70% inbounds and 30% off piste this is a great boot for you!

I did find some discomfort where the rivets from the boot latch enters the boot shell putting pressure on the top outter part of my foot. I simply put some moleskin over those areas and a strip of duct tape; it solved the issue. I also put in some superfeet red footbeds since my foot is small to get a better fit.

I got these at a local retailer for $409... Just sayin!
