I put these and radical pros (with one of my hoji free liners) on a scale they weighed 8g more.
I was fortunate enough to demo these boots before buying. The hoji lock was what really turned me on to them, it makes transitions a snap. After a liner mould the boots still gave me trouble when locked down to ski though. I went to my local shop and they hooked me up with a custom Sidas footbed and the pain disappeared. Be careful that you don’t crank down the instep strap, if I keep it too tight it can be really painful on the uphill. Also, you can adjust the position of the liner tongue, freeing up more...
Really enjoying this jacket. It’s tougher than a wind shell and provides more pockets as well. Pockets are big enough to stash skins in and the jacket is very stretchy. I used it in heavy snow and it kept me dry, but would wet out if the snow is really wet. Pocket within the right pocket keeps your beacon or phone easy to access even if you have other things in your pocket. It’s a winner.
Update: on a really cold night, 0-5° Fahrenheit the glasses would not transition to clear.
Roger that! I think I might have some around.
