Tecnica has carved out a reputation for building some of the highest performing all-mountain and race boots on the market, and the Women's Cochise 105 Ski Boot is no different. Boasting a Triax shell with a consistent, predictable 100-rated flex, a ski/walk mode for easy boot-packing and touring in an AT binding, and a powerstrap with a buckling mechanism, this boot caters to the woman who more often than not leans towards a men's boot to find the performance she needs.

Great attention to detail was paid to every aspect of the Cochise. The walk/ski mode lever is metal on metal for improved rigidity, and there's an easy-to-grab loop for quick engagement. The liner is soft and warm, with neoprene to give the toebox and extra touch of comfort. There's even a slit in the liner to accommodate the wires and pads of an accessory boot heater (if you see fit to use one). As icing on the cake, each shell features a sightly different swirl pattern in the color finish, a result of a unique injection-molding process that give every boot a one-of-a-kind look.

You get the precision to drive a carve ski on the front side, the support to keep you balanced when you're shredding choppiness near the gates, and the freedom to boot pack when you want to dip into a secret stash just outside the gates. Until you reflect on just how versatile, powerful, and comfortable this boot is, you won't realize how hard you've fallen for this, the women's version, of Tecnica's popular Cochise line of boots.

Awesome boot!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Great, stiff inbounds boot with sidecountry potential. It's a perfect boot for mostly inbounds skiers who want to access the backcountry on occasion.


-Finally a stiff, low volume non-race boot for women. Flex is 105 and I agree with the previous reviewer, feels closer to 110.

-Low volume fit is great boot for ex-racers who want a responsive boot but want to get away from the disadvantages of race boots

-Good for high arches- first boot I've owned that doesn't put my forefoot to sleep

-AT option- can buy separate AT compatible soles, but this is a heavy backcountry boot and would be best suited for sidecountry

-Thought I would hate the buckle/power strap combo, but it actually allows you to get a nice even, tight fit and maintains the stiffness you want throughout the day


-I would not recommend this boot for those who spend most of their time in the backcountry. It's heavy (despite the review below, I would disagree, this is not even close to the other backcountry boot options). I have the BD Shiva as well and these feel like bricks in comparison

-The walk mode is not as flexible as Scarpa's or BD's current options

Overall: great for expert women skiers and those who want a stiff, race boot-like feel and may (or may not) occasionally venture into the backcountry/sidecountry.

98mm, Tech Compatible, Lightweight!

There are few AT options out there for the ladies with low volume feet that want stiff boots. Even though the flex says 105 it's more like 110 -115. The 24.5 (290mm) weighs in at around 1850 grams. A lot of the weight is in the liner as these liners are more like a traditional ski boot liner as opposed to a lightweight AT specific liner. If you already have an Intuition or Palau liner you can save a lot more weight. The shell of the 24.5 weighs only 1450g. These compete with the Freedom SL from Scarpa but with a much lower volume 98mm fit. Tech compatible AT soles are available separately.
