Re: WTB: Leather 75mm telemark boots.

I first tried T4s on my RC125s for backcountry XCd. WAY too robot like, at least for me. Probably great for true downhill telemarking, but that's not what I do. I may very well end up selling my T4s. Plus, the Alicos are far less expensive.

Re: WTB: Leather 75mm telemark boots.

Got my Alicos from that same ebay store in the UK. Delivered to Canada without issue. Heavy but work great.

Re: BC90/Excursion 88 binding suggestions.

I use Alico Ski March leathers with BC125 and Voile 3-pin cable bindings, although never attached the cables. I love this setup for XCd through rough tight backcountry.

Re: Help Me Choose: Burly Leather Boots vs. Soft Plastic Boots

Because they are so stiff initially I am using mink oil or dubbin until they are broken in more. Then I plan to use the sno-seal.

Re: Help Me Choose: Burly Leather Boots vs. Soft Plastic Boots

I second the Alico boots. I first tried T4s but they were way too stiff for my skiing. I bought the Alicos from GI Joe Army Stores , shipped directly to Canada, without problem. Keep in mind the sizing is UK. I love the Alicos. They are heavy and very stiff, and at least for me, require a slow break...

Re: Steep and deep backcountry Nordic ski

Lilcliffy, I have been out twice with my new Alico March boots on BC125s 165cm with Voile 3-pin cables. I've never connected the cables. I don't yet telemark but these boots work really well with the BC125s for XCd. Not great K&G (although that may be related to my lack of experience) but awesom...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Just picked up my pair at the post office today. Wow, seems like great quality and craftsmanship. Incredibly stiff. Great fit. Just waiting to be broken in. Reminds me of my leather B17 Brooks bike saddle. And just as stylish. Can't wait to attach them to the BC125s. In the meantime I think they're ...

Re: New Posts All Forums:Forum Nav: Rossignol BC 125: 165 length too short for 5'-11" & 150 pound guy?

I typically wear a 9US- 8.5-9.5 depending on the specific boot. I ordered a size "8" in the Alico Ski March (British boot size- supposed to be equivalent to a 9US). I have a fair bit of experience with these old school stiff leather Nordic/mountaineering boots- and for me too much boot vo...

Re: New Posts All Forums:Forum Nav: Rossignol BC 125: 165 length too short for 5'-11" & 150 pound guy?

My Alico Snow March boots arrived a couple of weeks ago. How are they for sizing, lilcliffy? What size do you usually wear and what UK size did you order from GIJoes? Thanks. Fishnaked, I purchased those very BC125 a couple of years ago (great deal) and mounted Voile 3-pins with cables. However, th...

Re: All purpose backcountry/bushwack ski

alaska....Svartisen..Snowpine.........................Excursion.......T4...T2, etc This helps a lot. Thanks! Those Svartisen boots look very nice. The leather combined with the 2 straps could be the perfect balance I'm looking for. At this point, I've narrowed it down to Excursion and Svartisen for...
