BCX 6 Waterproof Backcountry Boot

<p>The deeper into the backcountry you go, the more likely it is that you'll have a whole yurt to yourself. But that mug of hot chocolate you packed won't be nearly as enjoyable if you have cold, sore feet. Luckily for you, you and your feet will arrive in comfort with the BCX 6 Backcountry Boot. The waterproof Triple-F membrane keeps your feet warm while providing breathability and repelling water and wind. An added comfort guard provides additional thermal protection in the forefoot and toe area. A treated, flexible leather upper and an injected heel cap that provides robust protection prevent your feet from being sore so you can thoroughly enjoy that mug of cocoa at the yurt.</p>

<p>When you set out the next day to head back to civilization, know that your feet will be kept secure with the hook-and-loop closures at the heel and cuff offering you a stable fit. A hinged polymer cuff offers freedom of movement front to back while keeping a secure fit for your ankles providing even more stability for exploring in difficult terrain. When the snow gets deep, your socks will be kept dry thanks to an integrated gaiter and sealed zipper. After you arrive at the car, slip out of your boots with ease using the easy entry loops. Enjoy the drive home with the windows rolled up. Your boots won't be stinky with Fischer Fresh that keeps nasty odors at bay.</p>

Snow Slippers

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have been using these boots all winter and they lived up to my expectations. From skiing down on groomed trails, to breaking trail in fresh snow, these boots keep your feet dry and warm. The liner on these is warm and barely noticeable, keeping my feet warm in a thin pair of ski socks. My toes are the only part that tends to get cold after a day of skiing, and that seems to be due to the constant snow on that section. Besides that I have not noticed any other cold spots. The waterproof is great and I have never had wet feet or toes. The leather on the toe section is great, , and you can see the snow/water bead. The zipper is rugged and has never let any water or snow in. I am a fan of the way these boots are designed for tightening. You can get the laces pulled tight, and the one complent is that the lower sections are hard to pull the laces tight. The section around the ankle really tightens the heel down and secures it. The ankle strap is a nice addtion and stabilizes the ankle when going down, as well as during those technical tricky moves. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a burly boot that can handle a day of skiing in a variety of conditions. They are a bit on the smaller side of things and I would consider sizing a half size up.

Questionable Quality Control

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I'd give them 2.5, if I could. They get the job done, but I am shocked by how bad the quality seems to be. On the second day that I used these boots, the synch chord for the snow skirt snapped out of its stitching on the right boot. I barely tugged on it. Threading it back into position is going to be a serious pain. On the 7th outing with these boots, the pull tab for the left boot zipper snapped off. Again, I barely pulled on it (which is the point of a pull tab anyway, right?). The right boot is significantly smaller than the left, which is notable because my left foot is measurably larger than my right. They are extremely difficult to tighten. They would benefit from some sort of lock where you can tighten the bottom part of the lacing system, lock it, and then tighten the ankle portion. Lowa has this feature on their mountaineering boots. Same with Scarpa. The zippers feel super flimsy. They are supportive, and they are extremely warm. So I guess those are pluses.
