    Ranger Free 120 Alpine Ski Boot

    One day you're lapping groomers front side with your buddies, the next you're in knee-deep backside powder, and on another day you're touring in untouched backcountry snow. It doesn't matter what kind of terrain you're in the mood for, the versatile, ultra-light Fischer Ranger Free 120 Alpine Ski Boot can handle it all. Low weight means you have more energy to take on those long uphills or technical descents, so Fischer constructed the Ranger Free with its Grilamid shell that also offers you a high energy transfer. Even the liner is as minimalistic as possible while still being supportive and comfortable. It can also be thermoshaped so you can create a perfect fit for each of your feet.

    When your day calls for some fresh, untouched backcountry powder, switch the integrated cuff lever to Walk mode for 55 degrees of motion while you're on the move. The Ranger Free is equipped with motion support in the form of a pivot point fixed liner cuff that enables less drag during the walk for more durability throughout your touring day. For traversing on exposed rock or slick ice, Vibram GripWalk allows you to confidently charge onward and upward without having to worry so much about slipping. All of this backcountry travel is possible with original Dynafit inserts that provide guaranteed compatibility to all tech-bindings. So no matter what the conditions or your mood has you seeking out, the Ranger Free 120 is ready to take you there.

    • Versatile, ultra-light freeride boot with serious tour walkability

    Aggressive Yet Comfortable, Well-Made

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Re-learning to ski (I switched to snowboarding in my teens) as an adult, and got to try these bad boys. My first thoughts were that ski boots were not that bad - I found these really light and surprisingly comfortable! There is a "Walk Mode" function that makes walking in these even cinchier, and it's intuitive to flip on and off between Walk and Ski modes.
    Getting them on is really easy as well - not at all like the ski boots of yesterday. They have this cool multi-layer system that makes slipping your foot in and progressively tightening the fit with the 4 buckles really smooth. (I love the poppy colors of the neon yellow buckles!) The high quality and light-weightedness of these is instantly obvious once you slip them on (they would be a fantastic touring boot).
    They do run a bit big as I noticed a good amount of dead space in the toes and shin area. I would maybe size down a 1/2 size. However, this wasn't a huge problem as I was only linking basic turns! I still found the boots responsive and comfortable. Overall, a fantastic pair of ski boots!

    More than I needed

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I'm new to skiing and tested these out from Backcountry's gear closet. Only writing a review for the overacheivers out there who think they need to get a a high value aggressive boot right off the bat. If you're already good at skiing, please stop reading. When I say I'm new to skiing, I mean that I used these my first time skiing ever. Don't be concerned if they feel like a vice grip around your foot at first, that's intentional. You won't notice it on the slopes. I spent about 20 minutes on the bunny hill in these things with some Chetler 110 skis and some cheap poles. Moved to blue runs immediately after that and was able to link turns quickly, so if you're decently athletic, maybe go for these so you don't have to upgrade during your second season. A lower flex rating will be easier to start off with though, as it allows for greater forgiveness when linking turns.

    Walk the Mountains

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This boot is great. I have had both this boot and the 130 version. I picked this one up more for touring because, in my opinion, you rarely are touring in terrain and on skis that demand a 130 flex boot in backcountry terrain. This boot has treated me well both at the resort and touring. It is surprising how light it is on the uphill, is easy to transition, and gives complete confidence on the downhill. My touring set-up consists of Blizzard Zero G 95s with Dynafit Speed Turn bindings.

    I am 135lbs and would consider myself an expert skier. I wear a street size 9 and got this boot in a 26.5. I typically wear a 25.5 for alpine, but was in between sizes on this boot and opted for the larger size for more comfort while touring. While it does not provide a true performance fit I am happy I sized up and still feel fully confident skiing. The liner is really nice and my feet stay comfortable through full day tours. I am very impressed at what Fischer has done with these boots!

    Unbelievably light

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    My husband used these on a recent hut trip, where we had to ski uphill 6 miles pulling a sled. He said the boots were incredibly light and a godsend on this trip. One thing to note is that they felt a little roomier than he would have liked and ended up with a little bit of chafing on the front of his shin. This is probably user error, but I thought it was worth noting.

    super light and stiff

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Used a pair of these boots on a 2 day backcountry ski trip with JHMG in the Tetons. Amazingly light and responsive. Paired with a set of Fischer Hannibal 100's and a Fischer AT binding (adjustable version of the Tour Classic) made for a super lightweight weight climb up. My powder skills need some work but I felt like I had nearly as much control as my resort skis give me on the way down. Boot fit was excellent. First day I used liner socks, with no fit issues at all. Second day I tried slightly padded hikers, just for variety and got a little hot spot near my lateral malleolus. Walking mode made for very comfortable skinning.

    super light and stiff
