Is anyone having any trouble with the heel on this shoe? I'm about five good bouldering sessions in with these, and although I'm loving them so far, I've notice that the heel is super super aggressive. I'm having some issues getting my heels to really suck in to the heelspace without there being any deadspace. Was just wondering if people who have been climbing this shoe for much longer have noticed the heel begin to break in and your heels begin to suck in more.

Everyone is raving about the heel. So I'm thinking it may just be a size issue. My toes are nicely snug and in great position already, but I maybe could have gone down a half size to really fill out the space better. Anyway, thanks for any input!

Does Electric make a clear chrome lens anymore? I have one but it's got some scratches on it and I'd like to grab another one. Perfect combo of clear interior lens for flat and night riding, but with a chromed out exterior lens for ninja stealth invisible eyes. I can't find it anywhere.

How does a $250 pant not have gaiters?
1 5

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

Great skinny tailored fit. Exactly the fit I'm looking for in a skinny pant with a nice snug thigh, tapering in at the knees, and a wide bottom cuff to fit over your boot. The positive review ends there...

This is a $250 pant that does not have boot gaiters. Enough said. It's just a silly concept. I actually live-chatted with a backcountry.com rep prior to ordering these to ask if they had boot gaiters and the rep told me that they did have boot gaiters. He was wrong. Last year's model actually did have boot gaiters, so I'm not sure why Burton would remove them this year and keep the pants the same ridiculous price.

Other negatives:
- This pant has cotton in it.
- This pant is super stiff right out the box. Don't know if these would ever soften up.
- This pant has absolutely no stretch.
- This pant is super expensive considering it's not very well featured.
- This pant has no inner lining at all.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

perfect length, nicely taken in at the knees, but with extra large ankle zips at the cuff so that they fit over your boots and bindings. i'm a lanky 6'1" 180lbs with a 32" waist and i picked up a medium for a modern skinny fit. my only gripe is that the material (almost a diagonal corduroy) isn't the most durable i've seen, especially if you're gonna nick them up on park features. i'm usually not a cargo pocket type of guy, but until L1 smartens up and adds boot gaiters to their thunder pant and premium skinny denim, these are L1's best skinny fit option.
