Heel Lock is Akward

Verified Buyer Reviewed by eldoux from Seattle on Saturday, October 15, 2016
I normally love Garmont Gear but this boot was a little off. The main reason returned them was because they were a bit short. I've had mixed sizing with Garmont. Sometimes they're spot on with a 10.5, sometimes they're about 1/2 size small - and like these specifically short.
The other strange thing I found with this boot is the Heel Lock feature.
This is a looped eyelet that is apparently there to help pull your heel in to the back of the boot. The problem is that there is a hook eyelet below and above this loop. It makes it incredibly difficult to keep the lacing below the "lock" tight as your're manipulating the laces for the hooks above. Strange design.
