Any CO Front Rangers looking for 10.5 Garmont Excursions? I can’t tell much about what kind of shape they’re in, but probably worth someone investigating.

Do you know how the Horizon sizing compares to BC Alfa boots like Greenland/Skarvet? Are they just as big? I have a pair of size 43 Greenlands and they are huge, and I'm not sure if I need to size down on Horizons or not. I don't have wide feet and my regular shoe size is closer to 42.5, and the Greenlands feel more like a 44 boot to me, but I quite like the quality of Alfa gear and I'm in need for a NNN boot.
I have Alfa Horizon (NNN), Guard (NNN-BC), and Skaget (Xplore), all listed as "wide" by Alfa, all in size 43. They all fit very similarly and have a consistent and accurate 43 length. I assume the Greenland/Skarvet is similar because it is also listed as "wide" on Alfa's website. The biggest difference with the Horizon is that the gaiter will not zip up all the way if you have large ankles.

Alfa makes 2 other NNN models in regular width that you might consider: https://www.alfa.no/collections/skisko Expensive at MSRP though.
Thanks, ended up playing it safe and ordering 43 Horizons. Just came back from the first ski, and they fit really well, I can tighten the inner boot better than the leather Alfas, so they fit perfectly even with the wide last!

One retailer told me they had no warning this year’s skis would not have the Easyskin attachment and they ended up with a whole bunch of Easyskins, with no skis to sell them with…

I came across this shop in Quebec selling the great Altai Kom skis (all sizes of 150, 162, 174cm) at 20% off. They are a super value at the regular price and I'm not sure I've come across them discounted online before.

If you are in Canada it might be the cheapest way to get them. You have to add $29 shipping, plus tax, but it looks like you can save over $100 CAD.

If your looking for a Kom - Never seen them, Hok - only a couple of times on the Altai site as a Hok/3 pin binding/Tiak package. I think I only saved like $40-50 for the package. That was like 10 years ago….

Just looked and they do have a “package” for on sale.
