    I have been using Ride Insano boots for the past 3 seasons for both resort and backcountry riding. Currently looking at purchasing a new pair of boots and am interested to know what others may be using for the same hybrid riding situation? I have read a lot about the Fitwell for it’s backcountry use, but other than the Burton Driver, I am still interested in exporting some other options. The Insano has been decent for me, but is definitely shingles signs of wear at this point so I think it’s time to pull the trigger and get into something a little newer, although I am not opposed to just replacing the liners if there is a good option out there as well.

    I mostly ride Colorado backcountry and some resorts in the area, with the occasional trip to BC and a trip to Japan coming up this season.

    Thanks everyone!

    Your timing is impeccable…you’ll see. :headbang:

    Are you using crampons or no? How much traversing? Other than that go with the boots that fit you and your riding style best. I just got a pair of SLX’s (90% off, Ha!) and I’m sure they will work just fine for my North East touring, ymmv.

    Not getting as serious as crampons yet! The wife is on an AT setup, so there is plenty of traversing in my life.

    I also really like the Spark straps that anchor your boot upper to your highbacks. It’s a little added confidence for something like 20 bucks although you could easily make your own.
