        Overall

        Best boot I have ever had. I haven't skied Full Tilts which are very similar, but I don't want to. I am so happy with Dalbello that I am going to stay loyal to them. I will most likely be replacing these with a new pair once these are worn all the way down.

        Performance

        These are the best boots in my eyes. They are super responsive to every movement, and you can do anything with them. They are stiff enough to cruise all mountain, rip don groomers, shred bumps, slay pow, go huge in the park, and get nimble on rails. My favorite boot ever.

        Design

        The 3 piece design is awesome. I don't think I will ever go back to the overlapped cuff style. My toes only get wet if the boots are submerged, but I know some people who complain that the design lets in more water then the overlap style boot. The Rampage also has a higher cuff compared to other boots I have skied in (especially the SPK, I hate the low cuff). So much more stable and easier to ski. They are also the easiest boot to put on. you never have to contort your foot in a strange uncomfortable angle to get them in.

        Value

        I got them for $400 which is/ was retail price. That is an extremely good price for a pair of boots. If these fit your foot, they will most likely be less expensive than any other boot that fits you.

        Fit

        Of course boots fit differently for every person, but the rampage feels like Dalbello molded it off my foot. From the first time I tried them on in the shop until last weekend when I skied in them, they fit like a sneaker. Absolutely zero pressure points. I have skied in the old 1080's which felt the same way, Nordica beasts which were ok but got uncomfy after a while, and spk's where I had pressure points all over both feet.

        Characteristics

        Dalbello includes many accessories to change the flex. I have them as soft as possible (rated an 80, they go up to 120) and I love them. They aren't super flexy, and they aren't super stiff, they are just perfect. Never have shinbang.

        Durability

        The only complaint I have is the lack of replaceable toe lugs. My toes have general wear and tear, but they will get to the point where there is nothing you can do but replace the boot. The heel lugs are replaceable though. No cracks or anything wrong with the shell. I have used them for 4 years too. The liners are comfy, and even when they pack out they are still comfy. The foam around my heels with coming out though, but that will happen to any boot with the amount of days I have put on these (around 140).
