The Dynafit TLT boot line has been at the forefront of the backcountry ski boot market for many years, and the updated TLT8 Expedition is no exception. On the TLT8, two ratcheting buckles operate independently of one another to provide a simple and effective closure system, replacing the somewhat complex single buckle routed-cable system found on previous models. A slightly taller cuff and a marginally larger (5 degrees) range of motion increase both skiability and walkability, while the ski/walk lever got a larger buckle, making life easier for gloved hands. The fully moldable Dynafit CR liner allows the shop to get this boot molded and feeling perfect, great for folks with trouble feet or who just don't want to go through a painful break-in process. Carried over from the TLT7 is the lightweight, roomy lower shell that accommodates wide and high volume feet with its 103mm last, making it a great option for folks who need a high volume boot. Whether it's skimo racing, powder hunting, or chute ticking, the TLT8 Expedition can handle everything you can, and then some.

  • With a larger and more glove friendly latch on the ski/walk lever, the Ultra Lock 4.0 is easier to use but still retains its seamless functionality.
  • The weight saving and walk optimizing Speed Nose removes toe lugs, moving the pivot point back several millimeters and making skinning more efficient than ever.
  • With Cramp-In crampon compatibility, just notch your crampons directly into the bottom of the boot and pop the lever, and you're in business.
  • Two simple, ratcheting buckles replace the single buckle routed cable system on the previous models, making for a simpler entry system.

Questions & Reviews

Audra S (used product regularly)
First, I want to commend the staff at Skimo for their “awesomeness” in finding me the best boot for my needs. I did all the fitting via their online system and over the phone. They have very helpful, knowledgeable staff. Since I have flat, wide feet that I have abused over the years from hiking and skiing, I usually have problems finding ski boots that work for my feet. These boots fit well with no problems for the first month. Unfortunately, I have noticed some pressure on my right foot; however, I believe it is my foot not the boot, which is why I chose to still give this boot five stars.

Second, I love the lightness of the boots and the sweet color combo. I noticed the same wear on the shell as prior boots after only a handful of tours. I covered with duct tape and it seems to be holding up fine now. I also had to mend the upper seam of the cloth trim on the tongue of one boot, after only a few uses. It was probably more cosmetic than a use problem.

Overall I have found the Dynafit TL8 to be a great, lightweight boot for touring in the backcountry.

I've logged about 40 ski days in these boots in the 2 months I've had them, and am super happy with them. I have traumatized skier feet (fearsome, trollish bunions) and most boots are simply too narrow to be comfortable, even when they've been blown out and heat-molded to high heaven. These are the first boots in a long time that don't cause me any discomfort thanks to their wider last. I feel like I can ski aggressively, and I love how quickly they transition between uphill/downhill mode with the flip of the upper buckle.

Question from Heidi
I am looking at purchasing either this boot or the Speedfit Pro. I want to know the difference in downhill performance? Does the TLT 8 Expedition perform well in all conditions? Powerful enough to turn a pair of 112 under foot powder boards? Which is better on the uphill? I am pretty small: 5'3" and 113lbs. I ski fairly aggressively.
Thank you for your time
Answer from Julieana
Hey Heidi, these boots are going to perform quite similarly both up and down the hill, the differences are mainly in fit. I would say neither is going to do very well with a ski that wide, as generally in the touring boot category anything much wider than 100mm underfoot is going to be too big for these boots to steer comfortably. For a ski that wide I'd look at boots in the Freeride category. Feel free to email us at for more detailed suggestions and ideas for you!
