I have never been more impressed with a snowboard boot. These are very well built, have a short break-in period and were comfortable even while they were breaking in, the heel hold is incredible--these are the only boots on the market (besides the F20+F24) that are able to hold down my narrow ankle and heel. The flex is great for all-around riding, not soft but not too stiff. I wear a size 10 and these fit perfectly into my Rome S/M bindings. The F22's don't pack out as much as other boots, just keep that in mind when trying them on. The lacing system is a breeze...I could go on and on about these boots, they are great and are the most comfortable boot I've ever tried on. I ride these everywhere from the park to cliffs and chutes to race courses, and don't ever plan on riding with any other boot.

I don't know why the description calls the Hatchet a freeride board, because it is quite the opposite. I ride the Hatchet as my main park board and I couldn't be happier with it--the flex is mellow enough to do butters and ride rails, but has enough stability to hit bigger kickers and throw around on the groomers. There is no other board that gives you this much technology and quality for the price; the Hatchet is a park slaying machine that is surprisingly stable at speed, but keep in mind it is still freestyle-oriented and not meant for high-speed carving...

Very well made boots, the heel hold is the best of any boot I have tried on (great if you have problems with heel lift, like I do). The Fusion outsole really is smaller than other boots, I wear a size 10 and can fit them into a s/m binding no problem. The lacing system is a breeze and lets you customize the fit with the, uh, locking lace guide things. That said, this boot is definitely soft, considerably more-so after breaking it in when compared to trying it on in the store (to me it felt decently stiff in the store, but after 10 min of wearing it it softened up a lot). The shock absorption is less than other boots in this price range due to the minimized outsole design, but is still cushiony enough to stomp big landings. These boots do not stretch out as much a most other boots, after 3 days of hard riding they had maybe stretched out 1/4 of a size, so don't buy them too small thinking they will pack out b/c they won't...That said, if you want a soft boot with incredible heel hold and small profile to reduce heel/toe drag, then this boot is the best out there.
