These boots were fairly comfortable but after 4-5 times on the snow, the bolts holding the replaceable soles onto the boot began to fall out. After skiing without 2 bolts on the toe-piece. The sole became permanently bent. I replaced the missing bolts but it was already too late. there was a 5mm gap between the toe-piece and boot that I would watch flex while skiing (scary).

While in a trip in utah I lost another 4 bolts from the other boot. I was fed up with them and with a trip in Oregon the next day, I needed a fix. I called up Backcountry, they gave me directions from the base of LCC to their store front. Replaced the boots with Scarpa Spirit 4 AT boot and couldnt be happier. The Scarpa boot was very stiff and held up to 2500vertical/day of touring for the next 3 days.

Notes: backcountry's service is top notch but these boots will fall apart on you. Similar design to the Salomon Quest boot so be wary

Ski crampons cannot be used for steeper slopes and skins work well on stuff that can get pretty steep. If it gets steep enough where you cant use skins. put crampons on your boots and skis on your pack

The problem with the ski crampons for these bindings is that they attatch on the binding so that when you have the heel lifter up the crampon wont even bite. so they wont do any good on steep slopes..just icy travels
