They are so close, but...
3 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: 11

These are close but lack refinements necessary for the mountains. Good for trails but when I gave them a true mountain test (Square Top Mountain, 13,800') there were some things lacking. I got these for this specific purpose as the Superior 3 did not hold up to steep ascents/descents.

The picture shows some of the terrain they were exposed to.
Likes:

* Zero drop
* Great ground feel
* Felt great on climbs. Heel held well during ascents.
* Lower profile than the Superior in upper
* Great sole

Dislikes:

* Heel gets sloppy on descents. Needs a heel cup. The velcro helps, but there's a sense when descending the heel isn't holding well.

* If one is going to play in the mountains there must be better lateral support. My foot was sliding laterally in the shoe to the point I had some foot hanging over the side.

* Medial and Lateral forefoot protection. The mountains have rocks and when there's no protection they jab into the foot.

* After two uses the top of upper at laces it almost touching. I had to crank them down pretty hard on the descents.

We own two pair of Atlas snowshoes and love them. I purchase these since my daughter is in between kids and women's.... When we went out to use the first time her boot kept sliding too far forward and was hitting against the webbing in the front. I tried to tighten the binding but that just hurt her instep. Going back to Atlas!

I started telemarking last year and the local shop recommended these. I couldn't be more pleased. I ski at Loveland here in Colorado where the terrain is less groomed and more varied. The Work Stinx make life a lot easier Especially for a new telemark skier. I have the BD 02 bindings. Love them also!

You'll be pleased.... I can't wait to hit the backcountry with them.

I just purchased this jacket after hearing such great things. I got to try it out yesterday: 43 degrees, wind 15+ mph and above treeline at around 12,000 feet. It performed wonderfully. I wore only it and a short sleeve shirt for most of the hike and was warm the entire time. I bought black so it would absorb the sun better so I think that helped since it was sunny most the time.

Highly recommend it!

I'm a new telemark skier this year and these boots have made all the difference. I demo'd the T1 (too rigid) and the Garmont Syner-G's (too wide). If you have a narrow heel these will work out great.

I found they were rigid just enough as to not be over kill like the T1's. Additionally, no break-in time.
