I've been using these for this meager season, ~50k vert on em over a number of smaller days, including a few races. Disclaimer, these are the lightest boots I've used so I can't compare them to proper skimo boots. My previous boots were green TLT6Ps. I've been skiing them MOSTLY on 177 Movement Response-X w/race bindings and 179 Down Countdown 102Ls with race bindings, occasionally with 180 G3 Manhattans with Radical STs. Firstly, these walk, skin and boot beautifully. I thought the TLT6P would be hard to ...

They fit great and are plenty warm - kept my hands warm in temperatures as low as I usually wear gloves before switching to mittens, and that's without the overmitt on. They also don't do that thing some gloves do (ahem CAMP) where when you take them off with sweaty hands, the fingers all prolapse and it's impossible to get them back on. They look pretty cool too.

Super curious how they stack up in stiffness/flex/ski performance to other lightish boots, say the TLT6P or Procline etc, and most particularly the up-and-coming Scarpa Alien RS...
