Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my second pair of touring boots. I have used the Scarpa Geas for the past 5 seasons and was time to get a new pair of boots. I am a 6.5/7 street shoe with a narrow heal, wider toe, and real calves. I tried on every touring boot available in my size and ended up with these. Many of the others felt very loose in the heals, and these by far had the tightest fit, (thought I would still like it to be a little narrower). I had size 23 in my Geas and ended up losing my left toenail every single year. I demo-ed the RS in a 23 and ended up with a bruised toenail so I sized up to the 23.5. After having the liners heat molded there is definitely plenty of room in the toe box. Like the Geas these are fantastic for touring up. I have never had any problems or blisters. They are lightweight with a good movement. For the down hill my Gea's felt sloppy especially in more technical terrain, I already love how much stiffer the RS are and excited to get to be a little more aggressive in them. They are not a cinderella fit, but the best around. My only really complaint is the color as I think they are ugly, but oh well. Would have loved the Gea shell in the RS fit! :)

I have been wanting a new shell for awhile. I have had an ArcTeryx Beta for the last 10 years (which is still a great jacket!), but was always a little small when I wanted to layer a puffy underneath it. My husband surprised me with this jacket in grey (definite charcoal color) for Christmas. He spent extensive time researching the best jacket for ski touring and ended up with this one. So far I am very happy with it. It is definitely just a shelI which is great because it is super lightweight and packs down easy, taking up minimal room in my back. Our winter has been a little bit of everything this year and has handled everything thrown at it, including a day of freezing fog where I was covered in a layer of ice. The helmet definitely fit over my helmet no problem and I liked the high big pockets for easy access when I have a pack on. Stoked to play all winter in this jacket.
