Hi all, mostly Barrows...

I'm looking to put together a full hardboot kit for my girlfriend by the fall and need to find her boots next. She has tried on the women's TLT5 and knows that it fits her perfectly in a 24.5. She's reluctant to get the TLT6 without trying them on. I'm afflicted with terminal gear research syndrome (paralysis by analysis) and have been searching for NOS TLT5s in both men's and women's versions. I've come across info that says that the lower shell is the same mold for both versions but that the women's lower is pebax and the cuff is grilamid whereas the men's is a grilamid lower and pebax upper actually making the women's boot stiffer laterally. She's an aggressive rider and has a lot of riding/splitboarding experience but none in hardboots and I want this to go as well as possible for her.

Does anyone have any experience with the actual differences in feel between the men's and women's boots? Right now I'm leaning towards getting her the men's version. Obviously the liner will get molded either way.

Thanks for any help!

I talked to a friend who works in a backcountry ski shop and knows the Dynafit lineup well. He said that the foot should fit the same with the biggest difference being how the cuff fits the calf. I ordered the men's boot, wish me luck!

Edited to add:
They fit perfectly, just as she remembered the women's boot to fit.
