We’re not going to call the Arc’teryx Procline a ski boot because it’s so much more. Sure you can ski in them. But you can also do some serious climbing. That’s because the upper cuff splits into two sections while in walk mode, offering lateral ankle articulation previously impossible in a rigid ski boot. It might be better to call the Procline an alpinist boot, but that hides the fact that you can step into a tech binding and ski excitedly down sketchy terrain. The Arc’teryx Procline could be the first true ski mountaineering boot, since equal design consideration was given to both skiing and mountaineering. Whatever you call it, we predict a lot of them will be seen in places previously no ski boot was found.

Questions & Reviews
Impressions are good. They fit my wide bunionetted feet, articulate well and are generally comfortable.
they climb ice fine, and ski well with plenty of control for my style.
They are warm enough with the performance liners for mild Alaskan days.
However, they are difficult to get on and off being unduly complicated. I would not want to deal with them in a cramped frozen tent in the morning.
I also unfortunately discovered one painful spot on my left foot only when front pointing. Being right where the fabric gaiter glues to the shell it might be very difficult to punch.
I really wanted to believe the hype but its just not the game changer its claimed to be. I don't see any improvement over my old Dynafit TLT mountain 6
How would this boot compare in performance of touring and stiffness to my 2012 Scarpa F1?
Thanks for your input.
