Re: The Ultimate XCD Boot: The new Alpina Watermelon DOUBLE!

Woods, you are not screwed! The folks at Alfa make boots up to 52 euro! Touring (and skiing!!!) with plastic boots is a complete non-sense. Ask bgregoire about how you can keep you feet, boots and socks dry on multi-day tours. He is an expert, he knows everything about Kartanks, Valenkis, Burgdoffs,...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

I contacted Alfa when I first bought the shoes to suggest stiffening the sole. Would they have listened to me, some dude from Quebec? You Sir are the Alfa reference guy in North America. You were able to convince a poor guy, who is 3 times under the poverty threshold, to buy 3 pairs of new Alfa boo...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

It feels AWESOME...! You just have to cut your expenses a bit... (Read: buying less boots and skis, but better ones... I'm pretty bad at both... ;) ) I think Ben is secretly an Alfa Ambassador or salesman... I never asked for it, but he kept sending me links of Alfa products I didn't need telling me...

Re: The Ultimate XCD Boot: The new Alpina Watermelon DOUBLE!

Yes... Alfa recommends 2 euro points... 3 seems the minimum to me, at least with a thermo kind of liner...

For the record, my Alaska 42s are a bit tight, and my 43s are a bit loose... The Alaska 47 with thermo liners fit perfectly! That's almost 5 euro points!

I already tried every single possible liner combinations... No luck, they both are too small for me... :(

Your choice...!
You pick the boots you like best, buy them way too big for you and choose the liners you prefer... ;)

Re: The Ultimate XCD Boot: The new Alpina Watermelon DOUBLE!

Crazy? The crazier the better! Actually, at 435$ USD, they are still half the price of other modern double boots... Hey Ben, are these "my" size 45 Alaska BC with Bergans super-gaiters? ;) You sure Jazz...!!! For those interested, this DIY kit is also available for the brand new ALFA PINKI...
