Not what they use to be
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been out on these about 16 days now and all I can say is that this boot does not live up to expectations. The first two times I had them out they felt great. On my third day I noticed that the toe box started to colapse and start creasing. A few more times later it started happening on the left as well. I don't crank my straps down real tight either. I also tried adjusting the strap length and it didn't make a difference. I used 2009 Triad and 2012 Cartels without any difference. The toebox is just super soft. I rode with out the Rider Adjustable Flex Tongue a couple of times and the boot broke down really fast. They fold over so easy now I have to ride with the RAF in all the time just to get the response I want. I had the 2010 model that I replaced these with that had about 100 days on them and they didn't break down nearly as fast. I do not recommend these boots. The initial comfort is good but the durability doesn't match the price. They will be going back at the end of the season. I would send them back now but BC doesn't have Malamutes in my size anymore so now I'll have to suck it up with these for the rest of the season.
