I forgot to mention that I used them with my aliens on Rainier, and I had no problems with my automatic crampons. They should work fine with strap on and new-matic ones as well.

Thanks to the overlap design, I now enjoy getting into my Alien 1.0's without having to slip the liners on first (and removing my foot from both the liner and boot). Though the foam is not nearly as dense as the stock 1.0 liners, I get a sense that these have increased ski performance compared to the stock 1.0 liner (perhaps due to the overlap design?). When comparing these side-by-side, the Palau liners are thicker t...
