I have a question of the suitability of this liner in the 7mm version.
I purchased my alien 1.0 boots (v1 yellow) way back, when they first went on sale. At this time they had the ridiculously thin yellow and black wrap liners, these were more like wearing 2 pairs of socks and made the later pull on boot liners look like alpine race liners in comparison. My feet are MP 27, but due to low volume, the Alien in 27 was never going to work, so I got the 28. I threw the stock liners and instead used the dynafit race TF liner from the very first DyNA boot and the yellow tlt6 performance. This liner in a 27, fitted perfectly in my 28 shell and has worked well for many years. Now having been through 2 pairs, the 2nd pair are now ready for the trash.
The obvious replacement is the tongued grey 7mm tour lite pro, this is pretty much an identical liner to the dyna TF liner. In a size 27 this works well in the alien 28 shell. But, part of me is keen to go to a wrap liner over the tongue design. So my question is, do you think the palau ultralite wrap liner in 7mm, size 27 will work out? Now I know that 7mm is 7mm in whichever liner, but the the ultralite is made of the more flexi EVA SD foam and I am concerned that it may pack out quickly. What do you think, palau tongued or Palau wrap? Any advice gratefully recieved, thanks.
Hey Simon, thanks for reaching out! It sounds like you are extremely dialed on your liners so I may recommend ordering one of each so that you can get the exact fit you are looking for (or even keep both so that you can have some liner choice!). That said, for a boot with a very skinny cuff such as the Alien 1.0, the Palau wrap (aka Ultralight 7mm) may fit in a bit better and allow more snug cuff-tensioning.
