The first thing I noticed about the DC Judge snowboard boots were how light they were. The duel Boa system dialed in a comfortable yet firm fit. The connection to my board felt new and fully responsive. The insulation is a bit thin but was easily fixed with boot warmer packs under my toes. The boots are new so I cannot comment on the wear. In sum, they are light and the feel is better than any boot I've ever worn in the past 15 yrs I've been riding. I am very pleased.
