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
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.
