For me, the reason I went to hard boots is because I wanted a boot that I could use crampons on with and keep the bulk down(I where size 12-13) compared to a double mountaineering boot. An added benefit of the hard boot is the ability to "ski" down hill in tour mode when it would be a waste of time to put your board back together.
