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

This seemed like a great option for a cook shelter this past April/May up in Little Switzerland, AK. Things started off well enough, relatively easy setup, etc. The first several days I was definitely pleased with the performance, but then with a turn in the weather, came a turn in the performance of the Nemo Transform. Between wind and snow, the top (anchor point) seam ripped, and as a result, one whole side ripped. Thankfully, we had a healthy supply of duct tape! I'd say it's decent for moderate conditions, but for an AK storm, not so much...

I agree w/Cory S on most of his review, although I'm skiing with red cartridges. The blues just didn't seem quite enough. They drive my Made n AK's, Hellbents, and Hippys with authority. Definitely do the custom beds, etc. I added some shims to the front of the liner to take up a bit of the space in the rear of the shell/heel pocket. After shimming twice, skiing the boot 15 days, I found the shells are just too high-volume, which I've never had come up with any other boot before. Rumor has it there will be a retrofit walk release next year too. This will help somewhat, as NTN is not the greatest for touring at this point. If you're a T-Race skier now, have a high volume foot, especially ankles (cankles?), and want to make the NTN switch, this is your boot. Unfortunately, I had to return mine. Thankfully Backcountry is great with returns!

They're okay, but...

I'd posted a completely positive 5-star review earlier, but after skiing these 20 days, I've had a change of heart. Initially, the Pros seemed up to the job, driving my Hell Bents well w/blue springs on 2. Now, after skiing several different snow types, I have to say the boots just don't have the power I was hoping for. That's even after swapping my blue springs for reds and dialing them to 3 (I'm 5'9", 165lbs), and adding a Booster strap (like the Comp is already equipped with). The fit is decent and I'd still recommend them to someone primarily using them in the BC or someone less-aggressive on thinner skis. As far as fit, I wear a US 9, 26.5 T1, and the TX Pros fit is virtually identical. Hopefully after I exchange these for TX Comps I can sell my T1's, 01's, etc....?

I bought these at the end of last season and only used them 15-20 days. I've been using them all this year as well, no complaints yet! I've worn them both backcountry and resort. They excel at both, making BC skiing more pleasant on the hands. I put them on for the skin up and they don't come off until I'm back at the car. Peeling skins is even easy with these gloves! They're stylish to boot!
