Fantastic boot for literally everything that gets thrown at you. Stiff and responsive in every condition. Puts all other hybrid touring boots to shame. Sure, it is a bit heavier than a pure bred touring boot and lacks the full articulation of one but that's not what I bought it for anyways. It's a boot that is light and comfy enough to get you up the mountains on those long tours and then leave your friends in the dust on the decent. The walk mode on it is superb for the uphill and on boot packs and the sole makes sure that you never lose your footing. Then just lock is down, tighten up the boots and you're ready to charge it on the downhill. All in all fantastic boot definitely will buy it again.
