I saved what I think is one of the best AT boots for one of my last boot reviews of the up coming winter and new ski season. This last flurry of boot reviews has been my attempt at a "buyer's guide" for the best of the current AT boots. I'll do at least one follow up on the Spectra, my stripped and lwt TLT 6 and a full review of the Dynafit PDG a bit later after more time on all of them. But this is my last full size AT boot review. Tracy has her own review coming mid winter on ONE boot as well. Her story of a newbie to AT boots should be interesting for anyone contemplating switching full time to tech bindings and AT boots for lift and side country skiing.
I am knee deep in gear and clothing. But not enough room to store it all. I have a hard time using let alone wearing everything out. I'd rather see it go to a good home than sit idle in the gear room. If you are my size, aka a large jacket, a size mens 12US, 45 Euro or a 28 Mondo for boots, there are some screaming deals to be had if you are quick. A few tools and some technical gear as well. I'll ship it anywhere you are willing to pay for. Gloves, goggles, packs, stoves, pads, snow shoes, old tools, avi shovels and tents go up tomorrow night.

With all the ski nonsense lately I thought I add some real climbing content.

Admitted ly this is a tough b log to write after the alst two on the newest AT ski boots available. Easy thought because I spent the majority of the last winter's ski season and well into Spring and early summer skiing the Scarpa Maestrale RS. Lots of reviews out on the RS by the time I got mine. Many of them well worth reading.
