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

I demoed these boots in Austria. It was the first time I have used a "racing" boot, and I was incredibly impressed because they were the most comfortable boots that I have worn. I don't have a particularly narrow foot, but definitely a "low-volume" foot, and this fit was perfect for me. Then again, everyones feet are different, so what fits me may not work for others. My only complaint is that the 130 flex is too much for my 5'7" 145 lbs and the way I tend to balance which is oftentimes in the back seat. It was tough to get over the front of my boots. Thats why the boots I actually bought for the next season are the Inferno Blaze 110s. Its basically the same low-volume boot but with a bit of a relaxed flex. Otherwise, can't say enough about these if you're looking for a high-performance snug fit to give you loads of control.

This thing does exactly what it's supposed to... I just wore it every day on a 5 day backpacking trip and it kept me dry on the way up, and warm on the way down and at night. Its comfortable and the zip top is key for releasing heat on a tough climb. At night or on the slopes it's great as a base layer. Can't say enough about this thing... After 5 days in the wilderness, I come home and my wife says it smells clean. Pretty amazing!

I wear this baby every day. Office, bar, or trekking. I'm always impressed by its wind-breaking ability and it does really well layered for warmth. I've worn it skiing and it actually does well as long as you're not deep in pow (no skirt or hood). The mahogany color is definitely a bit more maroon than shown in the picture, but not a bad color. Comfy, warm and stylin. A good quality soft shell.
