A good boot and fairly light

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Santiam MIke from Sisters, OR on Sunday, June 12, 2011
I tried these out for the first time yesterday. Not easy to find opportunities in June. Climbed a couple of miles on mostly snow with occasional rock. Flexible enough to walk in comfortably. A little stiff walking on rock. Locked them down and skied from the top. They felt great with good control. Sizing was a little confusing. I wear US 9.5, the 27's were listed as 9 and 27.5 as 10. I bought the 27.5, the tag on the boots says 9.5 and they are right. They were tight on the outside with footbeds in, but perfect without. I have not molded them yet, but they are comfortable. A hot spot while walking, but no blisters.
