just received my new Zealot 10. Looks like an awesome MTB specific pack. Great design with comfortable shoulder straps. Better feel and quality vs my Viper. I did notice the reservoir cap is annoyingly stiff compared to my Viper 13. Is that just hit or miss with these packs? Thinking of returning it in hopes a new one will work better. Any suggestions. What about a replacement reservior?

I'm 5'6" and 145lbs. I rode the 180cm version and liked it very much. Very stable and foregiving ski in powder and varied conditons that I encounter here in the Cascades. I've been skiing the Czar for years and love them. The Rocker 2 180cm (115cm) is overall easier ski in powder and curd but I did notice it's not anywhere as "fast" as my Czar. Might have been the wax or lack of it. Can you comment on this? Is this a result of just a wider ski or and more rocker vs the Czar?

Been skiing a long time and this is the first I've actually felt like a different skier as soon as I put these on. The immmediate difference was the "locked in" fell on my heel. No movement or shifting at all. At the same time, plenty of room in the toe box for comfort. That's a rare combination for any boot. I have a slightly wider than average foot and this boot felt snug but did not bite. I'm sure after a proper liner fitting they'll be even better.

The biggest difference was the immediate response to any lateral movement over my Alpine boots. This makes for a much quicker respones and a better carving feel to my 111mm under foot skis. Even on packed powder doing fast carve turns on early rise skis. I would recommend these boots to anyone who wants to improve their skiing. Don't be spooked by the reputation that Dynafit is only for people with narrow feet (I'm not sure what the last is rated).
One note: These boots are a little harder to get in and out as a result of your heel being "seated" in more than your typical Alpine or AT boot but the extra effort is worth it. The interchangable sole blocks are totally cool. It works great after learning how to do them on the first attempt.
