S/Lab MTN Ski Boot
Salomon's S/Lab MTN Ski Boot is lightweight option for aggressive skiers who are looking to crush the climbs and ski steep, technical lines. With a stiff 120 flex to drive big planks down powder-filled bowls and tight chutes, and narrow, performance-first last, this boot can certainly charge, but its low weight and impressive 47-degree range of motion in walk mode means you'll be setting the skinner after every storm, and heading back up for more after every descent.
A Grilamid shell maintains the boot's stiffness without weighing you down, and a carbon spine and Pebax cuff provide rebound, stability, and impressive power transfer for a boot that's so light on the uphill. Salomon's signature Custom Shell HD and foam liner are both easy to thermo-mold for a precise, custom fit that's comfortable on all-days tours and keeps your foot secure for control on the descents. A rubber, rockered sole ensures a natural stride and reliable grip on those inevitable, icy bootpacks up steep ridges to access that line you've had your eye on all season long.

Soo comfy and lightweight
- I've used it several times
This is my first pair of ski touring boots. I've had a Salomon Quest Max 100 before, so can only compare this two models, but the sLab are soo good in terms of weight (for a boot that has the performance of the downhill boot). The 2-buckle system is awesome. The power strap could be longer, but this is a minor thing. Walk mode is a real thing here. I bet you could wear the as your regular shoes. The only cons of these boots I could fine so far is their durability. Because of the lightweight materials that, there are a lot of scratches, both on the outer shell and on the pivot. But I guess they will still last many seasons.

Best Boot in the Business
- I've put it through the wringer
As a professional athlete and backcountry ski guide, my boot is everything. I work for EXUM Mountain Guides, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Alpine Guides, and Ice Axe Expeditions internationally. This is the most comfortable, high performance boot I have ever worn. It provides strong downhill performance in an alpine touring boot capacity. Easy to put on and easy to take off and excellent, easy-to-use features for switching from touring to alpine skiing. The boots are made well and last a long time. I've skied everyone from the Grand Teton to Greenland to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort to High Mountain Heli. Light yet strong -- that's the ultimate goal. They fit true to size.

Did you find the sizing different since they are meant for men? Or is it pretty accurate

Great All Around Boot
- I've put it through the wringer
The S/LAB MTN Boot is the closest thing to a do everything boot there is. Great touring ability while holding its own on the downhill. I use this boot on everything from big ski mountaineering days to hard charging powder days on the resort. If you only want one boot, this one is for you.
