PDG is short for Patrouille des Glaciers, a famous ski mountaineering race hosted by the Swiss Army. Designed for such races, the Dynafit PDG alpine touring boot could be the perfect blend of weight, price, and skiability. At just 125 grams (4.4oz) more than the Dy.N.A. EVO race boot, the PDG weighs in at only half the price. It features the same one-motion Ultra-Lock ski-walk buckle system that the Dynafit made popular on its race boots and recently on more general touring boots. Quick transitions are joined by fast descents, as you can actually ski with confidence on these lightweight boots. Changes for 2014/15 include a new liner, sole, and color.

  • New Custom Light liner shaves a few grams while wrapping your foot more evenly.
  • New blue EVO 2.0 sole blends expanded polyurethane and rubber into lightweight grip.
  • Fiberglass cuff offers surprisingly stiff support so you can drive your skis through turns.
  • A full 62 degrees of rotation in walk mode lets you take a more natural stride.
  • Ultra-Lock buckle system uses the buckle for changing modes, speeding transitions.
  • Patented Quick-Step binding inserts help your toes get locked in more easily.
  • Optional power straps add some muscle to the downhill (32g/1.1oz with screws).

Update 2016/17: The PDG gets a modest makeover with brighter colors and a beefier instep buckle. Dynafit also inserted Titantex fiber in the cuff to add a bit of stiffness and updated the liner. Net weight change is +20 grams (0.7oz) versus the amount listed.

Question from Teal
 
Hi I wear size Mondo 28 in both TLT6 and Mercury boots. They have the 28/28.5 shell size. What size would I order for the PDG? I have a low volume foot, but my street shoe size is 11.5 US. Thanks!
5/23/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Teal! It depends on how the TLT6 and Mercury fit you, but combining that info with your street shoe size, I would recommend the 28.5/29 shell. One of our employees wears a 10.5 shoe and is in the 27.5/28 shell, by that theory a 28.5/29 would likely fit the best.

Question from Ben
 
How does this boot compare to the DYNA evo? I currently have the older DyNA Carbon EVO with the split sole 2014 Maybe? and I was curious about how they would compare to the PDG in stiffness and sizing.

Thanks,

Ben

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Ben, sizing is the same and stiffness/skiability is likely stiffer/improved with the PDG. Any loss of stiffness from the cuff material would be counteracted by absence of a flex-zone in the forefoot and lack of slop (which has likely developed in your rivets and buckles).

Question from Mary Metcalf
 
I have just purchased the Dynafit PDG boots in size 23.5. I read on a review somewhere that is was better to get them small as the liner does stretch. I think the perfect fit would have been a 24 but it was not available. I returned the 24.5 as it seemed like it might be too large. My daughter told me that I should be able to just fit my fingers behind my heel when I put my foot in the shell without the liner and I had way more room than that. The 23.5 however are a bit tight. My toe just touches the end of the insole. Should I have the liners professionally fitted, or wait and try to find a 24?
Thank you,
Mary

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mary, your toe just touching the end of the liner sounds like a good length fit. Skiing or a heat mold would break that in further. We're happy to walk you through a shell fit over the phone if you'd like as well. We can send you a 24.0, but note it's not materially different than the 23.5 after break-in.

Question from Anton S
 
Hey,

I just wore Dynafit TLT7 size 28 and they worked incredibly well for me (perhaps a little too long, but just right width-wise and I have wide feet). What size Dynafit PDG should I get? My main concern is usually the width. Thanks!
1/8/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Anton, lengthwise you'd also be a 28. Width might be tight, it's a narrower boot than the TLT7 Performance. You may have to stretch or find a different model. Visit our boot fitter for a specific recommendation.

Question from Kristian
 
Hi.
Can you confirm that the size 28,5 and 29 are the same shell size also for the 2016/17 model? Is the liner any different or is it only the footbed?
Thanks in advance.
1/2/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Kristian. Yup, the 28.5 and 29 share the same shell. The liner did trim up a bit for the new model. The biggest difference is that the liner sits a bit lower around the front and both sides of your calf, yet maintains the same height in the back.

Question from Erik
 
Hi.
Looking for a new training boot in this weight class ~800 g
What are the most narrow and low volume boot? The PDG or the the Syborg or other?
The first gen TLT6 are ok for my foot, but a little too wide to be perfect.
11/25/2016
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Erik, the PDG seems to feel a bit narrower in the forefoot than the Syborg does. However, the Syborg feels a bit narrower in the heel though. Why don't you fill out our Boot Fitter and we can talk a bit more in depth about the history of your boots and shape of you foot?

Question from Spindogg
 
hey guys
my TLT5s are actually 297 mm BSL not 287. So as far as i know they are size 27s. It looks like the BSL i want for PDG would be 299. Is that a 27.5/28 shell?
it looks like a 27 in the PDG would be one size smaller. What size PDG do you recommend?
11/20/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Spindogg, aligning BSL isn't a great way to size a boot as it doesn't correlate well with internal length across models these days. Yes a 297 would be a 27 shell. It's possible you could get a performance fit in a 27 PDG since they are a bit wider. It might be short though, in which case you'd need a 27.5 and hope it isn't too sloppy. I'd give us a ring to walk through a shell fit on length with your current boots handy. 801-942-9084.

Question from Spindogg
 
hey guys
i've been in the Dynafit TLT 5 and it's a 287 boot sole length. The boot fits perfectly. What size in the new PDG would that be?
10/31/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Spindogg, the 26.5 should work well for you.

Question from Andy
 
Will a 26.5 PdG have the same sole length as a 26.5 TLT6? Or will I have to remount bindings?
Thanks,
Andy
10/27/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Andy, the PDG soles are 289mm whereas the TLTs are 287. Close but not quite!

Question from Kevin
 
Hi, i'm looking to buy a light weight boot the old boots i'm skiing in are garmont mega-rides size 27.5, I wear a 10.5 in most shoes can you recommend a size in the dynafit pdg or the la sportiva syborg?
10/6/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Kevin, that is easy, I'm also a 10.5 and fit the Mega-Ride 27.5. You want the 27.5 PDG or 28.0 Syborg.
