another update:

REI doesn't do special orders from Asnes.

looks like Sportalbert in Germany is our best bet. expensive but reliable.
Have you checked the price with La Cordée? Maybe the shipping is not as expensive as it ships from Canada. Vincent at La Cordee offers a great customer service.

Thanks! I will check with La Cordee later this year for next season. Skiing all week in Taos, NM has made me more undecided than ever before. 75mm or NNN BC? 92 with pin bindings? Tinden 86 or Nosi 76? or maybe all of them? MR48 for fast tours through wooded forests...so much to think about...lol. Will give it all some thought for the next few months.

I got a pair of these in the NNN BC version a few weeks back. I have since put a couple hundred km on them. I am very happy with them. They are very comfortable, warm, and offer great support. I can say the sizing seems to run a little on the smaller size.

Cheers :)
