It used to be that Search and Rescue operators recommended that b*ckcountry (can't use the full word, gotta keep Big Backcountry off our case) recreationists take mirrors to signal for help when they get lost-- not anymore!! Nowadays, if you're in the backcountry and need a rescue, simply find a long stick and hold your Fischer Travers CS boots up in the air, and their glowing green hue will attract every rescuer within a 15-mile radius. In addition to their hi-vis paint job, the Travers CS boots have a spec sheet that tick's nearly every necessary box on the "What Backcountry Skiers Want" list. A huge range of motion in the ankle, the super-adjustable Boa lower-boot closure system, and a stiff carbon sole are just a few reasons to grab a pair of these featherweight touring boots for yourself. Fischer's nifty stance-improving technology, Somatec, positions your feet in a faint v-shape that improves power transfer down to your ski edges, while the Grilamid lower shell takes a punch better than Mohammed Ali (the Skimo Co boxing team? Featherweight division only). If you like skin tracks, soft snow, and long days, then Fischer Travers CS ski boots are sure to be a perfect companion for all your snowy endeavors.

  • With a kevlar sole, the Travers CS is designed to be solid and stiff and able to handle hard skiing with minimal shell flex and slop.
  • An adjustable velcro strap and sliding buckle make for easy and fast transitions.
  • A notch in the back cuff of the boot beds the ski/walk lever and eliminates unintentional transitions while booting and scrambling.
  • Brass rollers smoothly allow the Boa cable to tension the lower boot without any hotspots.
  • The Grilamid lower shell can be punched to accommodate odd and strange feet.
  • Soma Tech, Fischer’s secret sauce, angles your feet outward three degrees for a more natural, powerful stance.
  • Toe and heel lugs make automatic crampon attachment easy and fast.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Vaclav
Hello, how does the Fischer Travers CS sizing and fit, compare to Scarpa Maestrale (the orange one)? My existing boot is Scarpa Maestrale 27.0 which fits great - wonder if Fischer 27.5 or 26.5 will be better ... My Fischer XC skiing shoes (RC3 Combi) is a US9. Thank you !
Answer from Julieana
Hey Vaclav, if you email us at we can go much more in-depth in assessing the right size and boot for you. In general, this boot is fairly wide in the ankle and heel and is slightly wider than average in forefoot width. Compared to the Maestrale it will fit quite similarly, though possibly a touch wider in the heel and definitely squarer in the toe box. They do tend to run just a touch snug so without your foot measurements I would tentatively say the 27.5 might be the best choice.

Question from Brett Nichols
I have a 27.5 Atomic Backland carbon. What size would I wear in this boot? would you compare this boot with the Scarpa F1 LT. I ski two pairs of skis. One is 96 wide the other 110. I have a pretty low volume foot.

Answer from Patrick C

I would stick with a 27.5 for the Travers CS if the 27.5 Backland Carbon works well for you. If you are on skis as large as 110 at the waist neither of these boots will be ideal, but the F1 LT will have a better time handling your quiver of boards.

My favorite touring boot so far (take this with a grain of salt... I've tried on many boots, but only have skied a few). This review is are my impressions coming from a beefier touring boot, the Salomon MTN Explore.

Fit: Typically I'm a 27.5 but wear a 28.5 in these which, after skied a dozen or so days, have the perfect amount of room. Overall, my feet are pretty average with no abnormalities. I have a slightly high instep on my right foot due to a long overdue soccer injury that is a part of me now which usually gives me pressure points over the instep. These boots are no different but the discomfort is bearable and isn't enough to warrant any boot fitting service...yet.

Liner: No concrete thoughts here. I run warm and they're warm enough for me and also have yet to show any downsides. Honestly I never have to think about them, good or bad, which is what I want out of a liner.

Durability: So far so good, I have about a dozen days on them and no signs of wear yet. I tend to treat my gear well, so I almost never have any issues with gear durability, but only time will tell. Little to no use on rocks or pavement yet.

Buckles/lock mode: I have to say I'm a big fan of the BOA as it really helps distribute weight evenly and feels good. I've had the dial snag on a few things which has made me nervous compared to a regular buckle but all is well. The top buckle is second to none all you have to do is set the strap and forget it the entire day. It took a few days to find the perfect strap setting but once you find it, all is golden. Lock mode just works, simple as that. No strings, no unnecessary moving parts, just one bar. I've had no issues yet and love how simple and easy it is.

Tour-ability: The ROM is more than I'll ever need needless to say these boots tour like a charm. I get slight heel lift but tightening the BOA helps eliminate this. Excellent walkers, night and day from my MTN explores.

Ski-ability: At first I was a little hesitant and didn't like them since I've never skied a boot this light and it took quite a few days to learn how to ski them properly. They definitely aren't a boot that'll ski for you, nor are they a boot where you will find success in the back seat. Unfortunately it also doesn't help that my skis+bindings are quite a bit heavier than they need to be so I'm sure they'd do better at driving something a bit lighter. The flex is great now that I have a bit more days on them but there is an obvious "wall" you hit at a certain point coming from a boot with a more progressive flex. They shine in beautiful powder and start to struggle in bad snow and when precise skiing(i.e. exits) is needed... or its probably just my ski skills. Overall I can ski them about 90% as well as my MTN Explores.

TL;DR: For me, the boot just works. Simple as that. I don't think need to think about them throughout the entire day and that's what I want from my gear. I highly recommend these boots as a first "light" boot for somebody coming from beefier gear.

Question from AARON O
How do these compare to the Scarpa F1 (blue first gen) in terms of weight and downhill performance? I like my Scarpas on the up, on the down, they are kind of meh.
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Aaron,

Thanks for reaching out! Compared with a Scarpa F1, the Fischer Travers CS will save you some grams on the way up, but will be a little softer flex for the downhill.

Comment from Walker Dixon
It's useful to know that Fischer also has a phone app that uses your phone camera to generate a 3D image of your foot. The app then calculates the optimal size (in half-size increments) to fit your foot for a specified Fischer boot. I'm surprised these boots aren't readily available in my Cascade region yet, but they should be. The app nailed the fit. shipped them out of state without a hitch. Thanks!
Reply from Forest D
Interesting. I used the App and it told me I need a 29.5 boot. My current boot (Dynafit) is 27.0
Reply from jbo
Thanks for the feedback on the sizing app, Walker & Forest! The potential for this (and competing) technology is promising, but the consistency of the output still hasn't beat the heuristics methods we use with our boot fitter.

Question from Alex
What size would you recommend for me? I wear a 10 wide for shoes, and have a pair of 27.5 Atomic Hawx 130s that were fitted at the shop.
Answer from Jeffrey
Alex, for a more educated answer, please fill out our Boot fitter and we can get back to you on that. The Hawx is rather narrow, did the shop have to punch out a lot? The Travers have a wider last and probably would be a good choice.

Question from Nick
How do these compare to the Travers Carbon? I am looking to get either of those or the F1LT next season.
Answer from jbo
Hi Nick, except for colors, this is the exact same boot as the Travers Carbon from previous seasons.
