I have the TLT7 and I hate them. The buckles freeze and you can't use them, the buckle cables break, the shells break, and the crampon adapters break (yes, I've broken all that in 20 days of touring on them.) I do, however, like the "expedition liner" and was wondering if any of the TLT6 or DPG or EVO have a traditional thick liner? I live in AK and need warmer boots.
Hi Derek, thanks for reaching out. It's a bummer that you've had such bad luck with the TLT7. The PDG and EVO will have thinner, race style liners than the TLT7. There was a TLT6 Mountain that came with a thicker liner that was designed to be a bit warmer. The TLT6 was discontinued though and finding that boot may be difficult at this point. I might suggest that you consider a Scarpa F1, given that it's stock Intuition liner is quite warm.
