Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is by far the most versatile boot to hit the Freeride/Touring genre to date. It is stiff enough to handle the big lines, but light enough to not hold you back on the hikes and tours. The walk mode provides a great range of motion and because the boots natural position is ski mode, you do not have to worry about that untimely shift to walk mode while skiing. I just finished a 20+ mile traverse through the Talkeenta Mountains in AK (Bomber Traverse) in this boot and it nailed it! With over 10,000 feet of ascending and descending on the trip and major temperature swings, the boot handled it all with ease.
