I've had this boot in size 29 for several seasons and by now developed a deep and perhaps slightly unhealthy attraction to this item. Just yesterday, for fitness training, I booted over 6K vertical feet and it was way better than hiking in my regular hiking boots! Question: what should I use for a replacement liner? I love the original Scarpa liner but it can't last forever and the Scarpa replacement liner is unavailable. What's the closest? Thanks.
It looks like this pack does not have an option to A-carry the skis? There is no side straps, correct?
Just wanted to add a few observations regarding the fit of these boots. Enough was said about ski performance and I'm not a ski expert to add much on this subject. It was an emotion-driven purchase.

So I want to get a race-style helmet that would have a bit more side protection and not sit too high on my head even when using a wind-breaker fleece balaclava or thin hat. How would you rate these light weight helmets in this regard? I know it's difficult to speculate on a fit remotely but I'd appreciate any feedback. New style Petzl Scirocco BD Vapor LS...
