Light ski boots tend to be made with thinner plastic and liners. That means you have less material insulating you from the cold. Instead of going heavier for warmth, just slip on some hip boot gloves. These neoprene insulators have simple elastic Velcro straps that securely wrap around a ski boot to add warmth. They block the wind and trap air which acts as insulation. The Boot Glo..

The legendary TLT has earned a higher number. While it’s a mathematical axiom that 7 > 6, in terms of weight the opposite is true.

The Carbonio version of the TLT7 is the high-end model featuring a carbon-fiber cuff-stiffener.

When center-punching a face at mach-speed, the benefits of a tall, stiff, and supportive boot are undeniable. Unfortunately, that usually means a boot that is too heavy, doesn’t walk well, and limits your range to faces that have already been centered-punched. Dynafit is now asking, “what if you could have it all?” The Hoji Pro Tour delivers impressive walking capabilities with a s..

The Maestrale RS is one of the bestselling backcountry ski boots of all time. Generally, the rule of thumb for a time-tested classic is to not modify it much. That is, unless you plan on making it lighter, increasing stiffness, and vastly improving the walking characteristics. Then of course it's a change approved by Skimo Co. The Maestrale RS 2.0 is another engineering marvel from..

Instead SCARPA went with a tried and true F1 lever. Th..

With the walking capabilities of two-buckle boots and the skiing chops of a full-blown alpine boot, the Atomic Hawx Ultra XTD 115 W is somewhat of a contradiction.
