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

I've been searching for a stiffer boot, that doesn't hurt my feet. These are like a breath of fresh air. They are very comfortable and perform very well. I'm so happy to finally have a boot that works, and doesn't absolutely kill my feet and calves or be too comfortable to really drive the ski.

They definitely have the easiest entry of any boot I've ever tried on, so that's a sweet bonus. I haven't yet had them heat-molded, so I'm really excited for that, since they already feel almost perfect.

I have a size 9 shoe size with a flat arch. I'm usually a 24.5 in mondo sizing, once I get my arch in the proper position. Sometimes that size really hurts, but not with these. The 24.5 is perfect and so it this current sale price!

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 36

I just demoed these pants. They are very comfortable. The sizing can be tricky, though. I'm normally a tight size 4 pant because size 6's are always really baggy in the waist and butt, so I'm cursed by being an inbetweener.

I'm definitely a 36, the 38's were baggy, as was to be expected. These 36's are tight on me as well, but look right. They just squish the butt a little, is my only complaint. But, just a little.

Classic pant!

I just got these, so will update this with a lot more information, later. But, my initial impression is very positive!

They are comfortable out of the box and the cushion is ample. I don't get fatigue, even after a full day on my feet.

They really hug the mid-foot, giving me a lot of stability. Plus, the toe box is roomy, allowing my toes and forefoot to stride naturally. That is really important to me, so am stoked to actually get these hiking.

The fit is very true. I'm a size 9.0 and these are fitting like a glove.

Stand by for a field report...

The magnet feature in this is so cool and useful. You can stick your phone anyway that's metal, safely and securely.

It comes with a magnet that you can adhere anywhere that doesn't have metal already, to attach your phone.

I don't find it very heavy or bulky.

Super happy with this product.

Size Purchased: small

Nice high waist, stays put, feels great. Not sure how they will last, but they feel like gold, so I'm feeling positive.

I'm a size 4 pant and the smalls are just right. These don't fall short either, at 5'8.

Not sure about durability, so 4 stars.

Stays put, feels great, looks cute, what's not to love!? Not sure how they will last, but they feel like gold, so I'm feeling positive.

The sweetheart waist is best for flatter tummies. If you have a little pooch you're trying to contain, I suggest one of their other styles with the high waist band, like the Gia or Mckenzie. They are also awesome!

I'm a size 4 pant and the smalls are just right. These don't fall short either, at 5'8.

Not sure about durability, so 4 stars.

Zip it and Forget it.
5 5

Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

I use this for ice climbing, hiking, ski touring and will probably also use them for chilly runs this coming spring.

The body mapping is on point and wicks the sweat well, to keep me dry. It's thin, which I love because I need a lot of layers for belaying on the ice. So, I need to keep the bulk down.

i really like the fleece arms. They keep the limbs warm, without worry about scraping the fabric again rock and tearing it up. Also, they stay put, with the stretch in the fleece, while climbing.

The fit is normal. I'm a medium and the medium is spot on.

Top Notch.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 41.0

I got the 41 in these for ice climbing. I knew it would be warm and comfortable. My biggest worry was the decent. Hard boots like these give me blisters, if the size isn't just right.

I'm happy to report that I descending, blister free, even though it was a very steep decent.

My street shoe is 9.0 and the 41's the perfect fit.

Full-length Zipper!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

The full-length zipper allows easy layer shedding without having to remove your boots and provides great ventilation.

Perfect for layering while ski touring or ice climbing!

The sizing will be pretty true. They maybe slightly smaller than normal, but you'll still want to stick with your normal size, for most people. If you are very much in between sizes, size up.
