@John Dee, can we go back to square one and re-state what it is we are trying to resolve or clarify here?
This has been through the blender too many times.

Re: NNN BC bindings: Auto or Manual?

Is there any reason at all to mount magnums on the T78's? I have both manual and magnums in front of me.

Re: Alternatives before buying Alaskas

I was reiterating someone's speculation about what terrain and type of skiing the Guard was probably designed for. Or, in other words, what market niche Alfa intended it to be for. Norway has mountains, but it also has a lot of plateaus. They said there were typical "hut to hut" tours done over what...

Sorry, I was being sparse with my words. I meant to ask if it was stiff like a Gamme. I think @lilcliffy said it was.

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

I think that people who fall inbetween and order up may have the best luck. I am confused man... Doesn't this completely contradict your assertion that Guards run a size large? I'm just talking about using the chart. I wouldn't want to get a whole size up, but I think it would be nice if I fell in ...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Just because someome commonly wears a 43- but can wear a 42 Guard- does not confirm that the Guard runs a size large- it may only confirm that that person commonly must size-up in boots that are too narrrow/small-coume for their wide/large-volume foot. Another reference point is the Alfas sizing ch...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Stephen Here are the posts from this thread that have led me to believe that the Guard runs large. I might also post some pictures comparing insoles. My sock and liner combo still doesnt quite feel right. I have the thick natural Chenna Barree wool soles coming which may work better as I prefer thi...

As far as size, I tried the Guard and Alaska both in size 47 and the length seemed the same.
I think the understanding here is that the Guards run a size large (a 42 Guard is really a 43).
