Question from Kristian
 
Hi.
Can you confirm that the size 28,5 and 29 are the same shell size also for the 2016/17 model? Is the liner any different or is it only the footbed?
Thanks in advance.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Kristian. Yup, the 28.5 and 29 share the same shell. The liner did trim up a bit for the new model. The biggest difference is that the liner sits a bit lower around the front and both sides of your calf, yet maintains the same height in the back.

Question from Erik
 
Hi.
Looking for a new training boot in this weight class ~800 g
What are the most narrow and low volume boot? The PDG or the the Syborg or other?
The first gen TLT6 are ok for my foot, but a little too wide to be perfect.
11/25/2016
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Erik, the PDG seems to feel a bit narrower in the forefoot than the Syborg does. However, the Syborg feels a bit narrower in the heel though. Why don't you fill out our Boot Fitter and we can talk a bit more in depth about the history of your boots and shape of you foot?

Question from Spindogg
 
hey guys
my TLT5s are actually 297 mm BSL not 287. So as far as i know they are size 27s. It looks like the BSL i want for PDG would be 299. Is that a 27.5/28 shell?
it looks like a 27 in the PDG would be one size smaller. What size PDG do you recommend?
11/20/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Spindogg, aligning BSL isn't a great way to size a boot as it doesn't correlate well with internal length across models these days. Yes a 297 would be a 27 shell. It's possible you could get a performance fit in a 27 PDG since they are a bit wider. It might be short though, in which case you'd need a 27.5 and hope it isn't too sloppy. I'd give us a ring to walk through a shell fit on length with your current boots handy. 801-942-9084.

hey guys
i've been in the Dynafit TLT 5 and it's a 287 boot sole length. The boot fits perfectly. What size in the new PDG would that be?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Spindogg, the 26.5 should work well for you.

Question from Andy
 
Will a 26.5 PdG have the same sole length as a 26.5 TLT6? Or will I have to remount bindings?
Thanks,
Andy

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Andy, the PDG soles are 289mm whereas the TLTs are 287. Close but not quite!

Is the price/model year right for the 26.5?

Question from Kevin
 
Hi, i'm looking to buy a light weight boot the old boots i'm skiing in are garmont mega-rides size 27.5, I wear a 10.5 in most shoes can you recommend a size in the dynafit pdg or the la sportiva syborg?
10/6/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Kevin, that is easy, I'm also a 10.5 and fit the Mega-Ride 27.5. You want the 27.5 PDG or 28.0 Syborg.

Question from Jason
 
Hey Skimo,

Looking at these as a new training boot.
I am a perfect fit in La Sportiva Specter 25.5. My old boots for this purpose were Garmont Masterlites also a 25.5.
I'd like room for a medium/ heavy sock for colder days (fit in my Specters but not the Masterlites).
What do ya think? 25.5 or 26?
9/30/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jason, ahh Masterlites! You should be good in the size 25.5 PDG.

Answer from Alexandre B
 
Hi Jason,
did you purchase the boots? in witch size?
My girlfriend had TLT5s before and apparently there were 25.5 (in her Memory but she doesn't have them anymore), but we measured and her foot is 24cm long.
She would like to buy the PDG but now she doesn't know what size to order now.
What is your foot size?

Question from Carl
 
Hello Skimo,

I have always wanted to try this boot but this is the first year with a size 30. How does the fit compare to the old tlt5 mountains in a 30?
9/23/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Carl, the PDG 30s are a few mm wider and a few mm shorter than the TLT5 30s.

Question from aaron
 
I'm so out of date on boots and no one around here uses skimo boots. How does ski performance compare between these and the Scarpa F3s I am currently skiing? At the time the F3s were my best option for weight and performance, but I'm guessing that modern PDGs likely best the F3s in weight, hiking and downhill performance.

I'm contemplating these as my go to ski touring boot biased towards light and long. I grew up parallel turning on leather boots and cable tele bindings so I assume these are a massive step up.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Aaron, weight and hiking is no question improved. Downhill performance might be tossup. What you lose from all the buckles and thicker liner is gained by lack of bellows and relatively stiff fiberglass cuff. Obviously a step up from leather :)
