Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ordered the XL and it was exactly what I was looking for my girlfriend and I's sea kayaking gear. We typically have 2 PFDs, 2 spray skirts, 2 paddle floats (foam), 2 bilge pumps, a small waterproof first-aid kit, a 10L dry bag w/ a few warm layers, a deck bag and a few smaller items and they fit great w/ a bit of room to spare. When we're done kayaking, we throw the wet gear right back in and don't have to worry if it stays in there for a few hours (or even days) as the mesh structure allows for great moisture management (i.e. no moldy gear). The bag seems really durable and I expect we'll get many years of use out of it. I also like the small stash pocket for smaller items (sunglasses, neoprene gloves, etc.). Highly recommended.

I'm trying to decide which boot to use on Aconcagua for a couple trips this winter. I currently own a pair or Scarpa Omegas that I've only used a few times for vertical ice climbing. I had the liners heat molded. I'm not really sure if the Omegas are the boot for Aconcagua, though, as I'm a little worried my feet will be cold in them. They also seem a bit stiff for the long slogs I'm expecting on Aconslogua...

Last year guiding on Kilimanjaro, I used the La Sportiva Glacier in 44.5. I realize this is a totally different mountain and environment than Aconcagua but I'm concerned about sizing. I normally wear a US 10.5 or 11 and thought the 44.5 Glaciers were a bit too big (not a bad thing on the descent as my toes weren't being too abused).

If I go for something like the Spantik or Baruntse, I'm not sure what size I should order. Any thoughts?

Also, has anyone used the Omega on Aconcagua? How did they perform? Feet stay warm?
