Drew Kelly reviews the Lange XT3 Tour Pro for BLISTER.

[ Editor’s Note : In the interest of getting you information sooner on some of the products we’re reviewing, we’re posting here some of our measured specs and manufacturer details, and will update in the future. Take a look, and let us know in the Comments Section below what questions you’d like us to answer.]

Lange’s reputation was originally built on alpine ski-racing boots, and later on their downhill-oriented “freeride” XT boots that were also commonly used in a ski resort setting by people only wanting one pair of boots for both backcountry touring and resort skiing.

With the creation of the XT3 Tour Pro, Lange officially entered into the popular genre of versatile mid-weight touring boots, as we have seen many companies do in recent years — think of Tecnica’s Zero G boots, Dynafit’s Hoji (now Radical) iterations, Atomic’s Hawx XTD series, Scarpa’s Maestrales, or K2’s Dispatch line , to name a few.

Given their middling weights, moderate range of motion, higher cuffs, and progressive flex patterns, these mid-weight touring boots are typically suited to everything from mid-winter powder laps to springtime alpine ski-mountaineering descents, depending on your priorities. And while they won’t come close to feeling like notably heavier, fixed-cuff resort ski boots — or uphill-oriented, 1-kilo touring slippers — the downhill performance of mid-weight touring boots can be pretty impressive and unrestrictive in the right conditions.

For more information on the entire Lange ski boot lineup, please refer to our Deep Dive: Lange Ski Boots Brand Lineup .

What Lange says about the XT3 Tour Pro:

“Get up to get away for adventure. The all-new XT3 TOUR gets Lange’s legendary downhill performance designed into a lightweight Vibram full touring norm uphill boot.

Using ultra-lightweight Grilamid plastic and friction-free hinges for effortless hiking and skinning uphill. Dual Core technology and Active Power V-Lock ensure all the precision and power on the downhill. The XT3 TOUR is a new standard for touring boots that can go up with the best of them, but over delivers on the downhill.”

The XT3 Series

The XT3 series comprises Lange’s freeride-touring and touring boots, evolved from their popular XT series, which were some of the original downhill-oriented boots that also had enough range of motion to be viable on the skin track. 

Currently, the XT3 series has an impressive range of weights, flex patterns, and lasts. Below is the full lineup (all weights listed are derived from a sample size of Mondo 26.5):

  • XT3 Tour Pro: 99 mm last, 130 flex, 1520 g, $950
  • XT3 Sport: 99 mm last, 120 flex, 1525 g, $800
  • XT3 Tour: 99 mm last, 100 flex, 1646 g, $n/a

Freeride Touring:

  • XT3 140 Pro Model: 97 mm last, 1805 g, $950
  • XT3 130 LV: 97 mm last, 1790 g, $900
  • XT3 130: 100 mm last, 1790 g, $900
  • XT3 120 LV: 97 mm last, 1770 g, $750
  • XT3 120: 100 mm last, 1770 g, $750
  • XT3 110: 100 mm last, 1750 g, $650
  • XT3 100: 100 mm last, 1584 g, $650

While all models in the XT3 series use Lange’s Active Power V-Lock walk mechanism that debuted on the 20/21 XT3 series, they differ in nearly every other aspect of their design: 

The XT3 100 through XT3 140 Pro Model are the crossover resort/touring (aka, “50/50”) models, which come in 97 mm and 100 mm lasts, use heavier plastics, have replaceable Gripwalk soles, use high cuffs, and burlier liners. The XT3 Tour, Sport, and Tour Pro are the dedicated touring models, which feature fixed Vibram touring soles, more breathable liners, lighter plastics with thinner walls, lower cuff heights, and only run in a 99 mm last.

Drew Kelly reviews the Lange XT3 Tour Pro for BLISTER.

Weight & Comparisons

At a stated weight of 1520 grams, the XT3 Tour Pro sits around the middle of the mid-weight, versatile, stiffer-flex touring boot genre — a spectrum that typically ranges from 1300-1650 grams per boot. Often in this class of boots, a heavier boot equates to better suspension, torsional rigidity, and rearward support — but also a less breathable liner, less ROM, and obviously more weight to carry uphill. 

(For reference, here are a number of our measured weights for some comparable boots. For our measured weights, we list the weights of each shell + the weights of each liner, then the total weights of the shells + liners.)

Things We’re Curious About 

Given all this, we have quite a few questions about how the XT3 Tour Pro fits into this already saturated category of boots , which we’ll aim to address in our full review:

(1) What foot shape is most naturally suited to this boot — the last is a stated 99 mm, but how does the boot fit lengthwise, what is the height of the instep, is the heel pocket narrow or wide, and how does the cuff height compare to similar boots?

(2) What portion of its 53° range of motion functions in the forward-flexing vs. rearward-flexing part of a stride?

(3) While we all know flex numbers aren’t standardized, there is a typical realm of “130-feeling” boots. So does the XT3 Tour Pro live up to its proclaimed 130-flex rating, and how progressive is that flex pattern?

(4) We have experienced significant icing problems with the Active Power V-Lock mechanism in other XT3 series boots, and so are curious if those issues continue in the Tour Pro model, given its different plastics.

(5) And most generally, does Lange’s first attempt at a touring-specific boot live up to the brand’s reputation for making high-quality options in other boot categories?

Bottom Line (For Now)

Over the past year we have had a few reviewers spend time in the XT3 Tour Pro. Until the snow starts flying this Fall, we’ll be eagerly waiting to put more backcountry days in this boot, so keep an eye out for updates, and let us know if you have any thoughts or questions in the comments below.

2022-2023 Lange XT3 Tour Pro, BLISTER

2 comments on “2022-2023 Lange XT3 Tour Pro”

Any updates on this boot? Wondering how it tours, have a pretty good idea of how it will ski…

I use this boot solely in the backcountry and find it tours great. Good range of motion, not a hoji transformer but easy transitions. My only issue is that in heavy powder I had the walk/ski mode get gummed up and wouldn’t stay in ski mode. It was just one day and only one boot, no issues before or after, so don’t know if I’ll have issues again.

It is tough to get in and out of but skis like a Lange.

Lange XT3 130 Ski Boot Review

With excellent power transfer and a confidence-inspiring build, lange’s downhill-focused backcountry boot is made for aggressive riders and committing lines.

Lange XT3 130

Price: $750 Weight per pair: 7 lbs. 14.3 oz. Flex: 130 What we like: An exceptional downhill companion for big lines and variable conditions.  What we don’t: Heavy; overlapping cuff inhibits range of motion while touring. See the Lange XT3 130   See the Women's Lange XT3 110

Backcountry skiers often sacrifice downhill performance for the ability to tour uphill, but Lange’s XT3 130 is designed with the descent in mind. We put the XT3 to the test both on- and off-piste in the Coast and North Cascade ranges of the Pacific Northwest and found it to be impressively confidence-inspiring in committing terrain. Weight-conscious skiers looking to cover ground quickly should look elsewhere, but the Lange is a true standout for confident riders hitting big lines, resort-goers who like to explore the slackcountry, and aggressive skiers who want an alpine boot-like feel in the backcountry. Below we break down the Lange XT3 130’s overall performance. To see how it stacks up to the competition, see our article on the best backcountry ski boots .

What We Like

  • The Lange XT3 is an exceptional downhill companion: this boot is highly responsive, transfers power incredibly well, and is stable at speed and in a range of conditions.
  • Extremely hardwearing and confidence-inspiring build has held up impressively well to rough backcountry and resort use.
  • Dual 3D Full liner and sturdy polyurethane shell provide great warmth and fit me very well out of the box.
  • Compatible with both tech and alpine bindings.

What We Don’t

  • Very heavy at nearly 8 pounds for the pair, which can take a toll on long tours.
  • Overlapping cuff design causes the boot to stop flexing abruptly while in walk mode and can make it difficult and painful to get off.
  • Flat surface under the toe and heel makes walking in icy conditions tricky and fairly treacherous.

Lange’s XT3 130 is a strong and powerful backcountry ski boot that performs exceptionally well on the descent. In this category, we also like Atomic’s Hawx Ultra XTD 130 . The Atomic is the weight leader at 6 pounds 15 ounces per pair (nearly a full pound lighter than the Lange) and features 54 degrees of range of motion, both of which translate to better uphill capabilities. You also get a sturdy 130 flex and a four-buckle layout, although it's still a step down from the alpine boot-like feel of the Lange on the downhill, making it the less ideal pick for heavy riders and big-mountain lines. In the end, a final decision between the two will come down to your objectives and priorities: the Lange can ski more aggressively, but the Ultra XTD is the more versatile 50/50 resort and backcountry pick.

Lange XT3 ski boot (steep descent)

For those looking for a more balanced design, one of our favorite all-rounders is Dynafit’s Hoji Free . Although less aggressive on the descent, the Hoji Free undercuts the Lange considerably in weight at 6 pounds 13 ounces per pair but retains a progressive and stiff 130 flex, has a 55-degree range of motion that offers a smooth and natural uphill experience, and is compatible with both alpine and tech bindings. And importantly, despite its great performance on the skin track, the Hoji Free still is an excellent downhill companion thanks to Dynafit’s Hoji Lock system, which locks the spine and cuff together via a single lever for a snug, alpine boot-like feel (for more, see our in-depth Hoji Free review ). The Hoji doesn’t come cheap at $900, but we consider it the much more well-rounded option for touring (and the clear choice if you’ll be doing any multi-day trips). 

Lange XT3 ski boot (skinning in snow storm)

Finally, Salomon recently released an intriguing hybrid design in their Shift Pro 130 . Like the Lange, the Shift Pro is best for downhill-oriented skiers with an alpine boot-like feel, study four-buckle closure system, GripWalk soles (with a Contagrip section to boost traction on icy surfaces), and easy-to-use ski/walk lever. Compared to the Lange, the Salomon weighs less at 7 pounds 3 ounces per pair but falls notably short in overall mobility and freedom of movement (it has a 40-degree ROM). In the end, the XT3’s better climbability and $50-cheaper price tag are enough for us to give it the edge over the Salomon, but the Shift Pro nevertheless is a competitive addition to the hybrid category. And for a slightly softer option for backcountry and sidecountry adventures, check out Salomon’s S/Lab MTN.

The breath of wildlife and the chance to be closer to the virgin nature excites both children and grownups. Hundreds of different species of animals can be found in Moscow nature parks.

Aptekarsky Ogorod (Apothecary Garden) is one of the oldest gardens in Moscow. It was founded in the XVIII century by Peter the First (great Russian emperor). A larch that he planted himself still grows in the garden, so it’s more than 250 years old. At the time of its foundation, it was a garden with herbs and medicinal plants and was used as an educational center for doctors. Today there are the orangery with its tropical palms, the carp pond, and the immense trees that dot the landscape and turn wonderful golden shades in the autumn. Several restaurants and cafes work here making it a very nice spot for relaxation no matter what season it is. You can book a special tour or join the guided excursion group.

Main Botanical Garden of The Russian Academy of Sciences is the largest and most famous is Moscow. The garden is a real museum of nature with a very rich (more than 18000 types) collection of plants. The park was founded in 1945 at the place of the 17th century Apothecaries’ Gardens. The garden’s collection is turned into botanical expositions, made with use of modern receptions of landscape architecture. Here you can see a tree nursery, a shadow garden, hothouse complex, collection of flowers, a rosary, exposition of coastal plants, garden of continuous blossoming, Japanese garden and expositions of cultural plants and natural flora plants. The biggest part of Garden is the Tree nursery occupying the space of 75 hectares. About 2 thousand wood plants grow here. Another big exposition of the Garden is nature Flora, divided into six botanic-geographical collections: European part of Russia, Caucuses, Central Asia, Siberia and Far East. Pride of the Main Botanical Garden is the collection of tropical, coastal and water plants, which is considered as the best in Europe. The Japanese garden, a great model of Japanese landscape gardening art has a 13-level stone pagoda of the 18th century, stone Japanese lamps, ponds, falls and streams, tea lodges and more than 100 species of the most character Japan plants. It is especially decorative in spring, during Oriental cherry blossoming and in fall, when foliage blazes in crimson colors.

Moscow historic parks

Historic nature parks and estates once were the mansions of the Moscow aristocracy. At that far times the estates were outside the Moscow city limits, but after the city expansion and urbanization, they became easily accessible.

Kolomenskoye

Kolomenskoe

Kolomenskoye Museum and Park

The chief attraction of the park is undoubtedly the stone Church of the Ascension of the Lord. It was constructed in 1532 by order of Tsar Vasily III to commemorate the birth of his son and heir, Ivan the Terrible. But there is a lot more to see in the park: the pretty Church of the Icon of Our Lady of Kazan – with its bright azure domes and plenty of gold. Further into the park there is a charming Church of the Beheading of St John the Baptist, built by Ivan the Terrible to mark his coronation.

Kuskovo

Kuskovo Park

Kuskovo Park is one of the oldest country estates in Moscow. It was given to General Sheremetev by Peter the Great in 1715, but was left to fall into neglect before being plundered by Napoleon’s troops in 1812. Nowadays the estate has been restored to its former glory and is a good example of Russian 18th Century imperial architecture. The palace is a fine and rare example of wooden neoclassicism. It was completed in 1775, and the rich interiors remain unchanged since 1779. It includes a room hung with exclusive exquisite Flemish tapestries, an abundance of silk wallpaper and an impressive collection of 18th century European and Russian paintings. The palace looks onto the lake, which is surrounded by smaller pavilions: pretty Italian, Dutch and Swiss Cottages, Blank’s Hermitage and the old Orangery, where the State Ceramics Museum is located now, an extensive and absorbing collection of porcelain from the 18th century to the present day. On the other side of the lake is a large wood popular with local cyclists and joggers.

The Best Women’s Backcountry Boots of 2023

Featuring tech inserts, rubber soles, and hike-modes with plenty of range of motion, these boots make short work of uphill slogs.

Heading out the door? Read this article on the new Outside+ app available now on iOS devices for members! >","name":"in-content-cta","type":"link"}}'>Download the app .

These days, you’ve got options in the backcountry boot category. On the one hand, you’ve got true, lightweight alpine touring boots designed with the uphill slog in mind. These boots feature tech inserts in the toe, burly Vibram soles for bootpacking, and above all, walk-modes that give you ample fore-aft range of motion so you’re not killing your ankles and calves on long, steep tours.

On the other hand, you can now find hybrid backcountry boots that bridge the gap between the downhill performance of alpine boots, and the uphill performance of alpine touring boots. These types of backcountry boots may also feature tech inserts in the toe and walk-modes with an acceptable range of motion for longer tours, but they tend to be heavier because they’re made with burlier plastics and materials that increase downhill performance. These boots also often feature GripWalk or Multi Norm Compatible (MNC) soles that may be compatible with the bindings mounted on your resort skis, meaning they can be great one-boot quiver options that you can ski in and out of the resort.

Because we all have different backcountry agendas, we’ve included 2023’s best women’s backcountry boot options in both the hybrid and alpine touring categories. If you’re looking for one boot to use inbounds and in the backcountry, peruse our top-rated hybrid options. If you’re a dedicated backcountry skier who’s looking to shave grams to make big backcountry missions more doable, check out the Atomic Backland Pro UL, the dedicated alpine touring boot on this list. Whatever you choose, make sure you carefully consider and research your boot/binding compatibility .

K2 Dispatch LT W

2023 K2 Dispatch LT W

Category: Hybrid Flex: 115 Last: 100mm Weight: 1,390 grams Size range: 22.5-27.5 Price: $950 ( Buy Now ) Binding compatibility: Multi-norm compatible (MNC) Best for: Advanced and expert skiers who spend more days aggressively charging the backcountry than at the resort

The all-new K2 Dispatch LT W was built for big missions and technical descents, a lightweight freeride touring boot for advanced to expert female skiers looking to charge. At 1,390 grams, it’s remarkably light for a four-buckle touring boot; while it’s not burly enough to smash resort laps, it’s about as performance-oriented as you can get for the backcountry and the occasional inbounds day without jumping way out of the weight class. With a flex of 115, the Dispatch LT W is slightly stiffer and about 1,000 grams lighter than K2 ’s other new Dispatch, which is a softer and more approachable 105-flex boot. Testers appreciated the large external walk-mode lever, which is easy to use with gloves on, and the 60-degree range of motion feels on par with other freeride touring boots like the Tecnica Zero G W and the Atomic Hawx Ultra. Fit-wise, the Dispatch LT W features a pretty wide box and a 100mm last, so skiers with a low-volume foot might want to look elsewhere.

Fischer Ranger 115 GW DYN

2023 Fischer Ranger 115 GW DYN

Flex: 115 Last: 99mm Weight: 1,590 grams Size range: 22.5-27.5 Price: $750 ( Buy Now ) Binding compatibility: MNC, GripWalk (GW) Category: Hybrid Best for: Resort skiers in search of a boot that can also hang on short backcountry tours

A charging boot that’s down to earn a few turns, the updated Fischer Ranger 115 GW DYN is an ideal everyday boot for female resort skiers who occasionally take a few backside laps. Thanks to a 115 flex and redesigned TPU cuff and shell, it’s strong and capable while railing icy groomers or jockeying for a rope drop on a powder day. Tech fittings, Gripwalk soles, and a decent range of motion make bootpacks and sidecountry hot laps a breeze. At first glance, the Ranger 115 W doesn’t look like a touring boot at all; the walk-mode lever is tucked away next to the top buckle, preventing pant legs from getting snagged on an external mechanism. For what it is, this boot walks pretty well, but it’s definitely a better choice for those who prioritize the ski down and prefer to smell the roses on the way up.

Lange XT3 Tour Pro W

2023 Lange XT3 Tour Pro W

Flex: 115 Last: 99mm Weight: 1,380 grams Size range: 22/22.5-27/27.5 Price: $900 ( Buy Now ) Binding compatibility: MNC Category: Hybrid Best for: Backcountry skiers who occasionally ride the resort and are looking for a good balance of uphill and downhill performance

For decades, Lange has proven to skiers that their boots don’t mess around when it comes to powering downhill, but it wasn’t until recently that their touring boots found a seat at the table among hardcore backcountry skiers. The new XT3 Tour Pro W strikes an impressive balance between downhill and uphill capabilities, with a stiff 115 flex, a lightweight Grilamid shell, tech inserts, and Vibram soles. Testers who had skied on past versions of the XT3 and XT Free touring boots were impressed with the 53-degree range of motion on the women’s-specific XT3 Tour Pro W. This new range allows you to glide through strides smoothly, but the cuff can still be cinched down at the summit for a compromise-free descent. The walk-mode lever is manageable with gloves on, although not quite as easy to manipulate as a large external lever, which testers felt was the only big drawback in user-friendliness in this boot.

Atomic Backland Pro UL W

2023 Atomic Backland Pro UL W

Flex: N/A Last: 98mm Weight: 936 grams Size range: 22/22.5.5-27/27.5 Price: $975 ( Buy Now ) Binding compatibility: Tour Light Tech (TLT) pin bindings only Category: Alpine Touring Best for: Dedicated backcountry skiers with big missions on the agenda

For adventures that are more about the walking than the skiing—admit it, we’ve all had them—the updated Atomic Backland Pro UL W makes skinning a heck of a lot smoother. On the up, it feels like a hiking boot. The 74-degree range of motion allows for more movement than most human ankles can physically flex, and the polyamide shell and cuff keep things light on the skintrack. At the summit, it’s a breeze to lock things up: The external walk-mode lever, Speed Strap buckle, and BOA Fit System system cinch the boot quickly, making for efficient transitions on fitness laps and alpine missions alike. A soft boot like this requires a fair amount of balance and technique, so unless you’re hippie-wiggling in low-angle pow, you can’t put this one on cruise control. For this reason, it’s a great option for advanced female skiers with their sights set on long pushes in the wilderness. Like the other Backland boots, it’s incredibly low volume, and a few testers had to go up a whole size to find a comfortable fit.

In just three days, this Moscow itinerary takes in all the most iconic sights of this attraction-packed destination. After two and half days getting acquainted with the city, we’ve set time aside for you to explore Moscow your way and discover your own favourite hang-outs in a city overflowing with hidden treasures

3-Day Moscow Tour Highlights:

  • Panoramic Tour of Moscow: See Moscow beyond the postcard images on a private excursion by car through the city streets including a drive along the banks of the Moskva River. Visit the famous Bolshoi Theatre, pass by Gorky Park and the Novodevichy Convent, and admire the city from on high at the Sparrow Hill observation platform.

  • Armory Chamber tour: Explore the endless treasures of this unique museum, displaying the wealth accumulated by Russian rulers from the 12th century until the October Revolution of 1917. Walking through the exhibition halls is a journey through the centuries.
  • Moscow Metro Tour : Go deep underground on a subway tour of the famous Moscow metro. The world’s deepest metro system is renowned for its palatial, art-adorned stations, complete with marble columns and chandeliers.

On your first day, you’ll be treated to a panoramic, drive-by tour of Moscow to get a feel for the immense scale of one of the world’s most rapidly developing urban centres. The city’s history unfolds in real-time as you pass lavish imperial mansions, solemn Soviet structures and luxurious modern shopping centres.

Day two kicks off exploring Moscow’s historic centre on foot, followed by a tour of the Kremlin, the seat of Russian power and political intrigue for centuries. Stand in the Red Square, surrounded by the stunning architecture as you hear stories of the people and events behind many of Moscow’s most iconic landmarks.

On your final day, we’ll head beneath the city for a tour of the Moscow Metro and its famously ornate underground stations. Art lovers should hit up one of Moscow’s many world-class galleries such as the Tretyakov State Gallery, the Pushkin Museum or Garage, Moscow’s cutting-edge contemporary art museum. History fans can follow a Soviet trail through the city including Stalin’s Bunker, while those seeking a more indulgent experience can browse trendy neighbourhoods like Kitay Gorod or shop for everything from fashion to kitsch souvenirs at the enchanting Izmaylovo Flea Market. Foodies can head to one of the countless speciality stores sampling vodka, caviar and chocolate.

Russia Moscow Tour

Day 1 Panoramic city tour

Welcome to the glorious capital of Russia, Moscow! You’ll be met by your driver at the airport and taken to your centrally located hotel.

After check-in and rest, meet your private guide at the hotel lobby for a comprehensive tour of Moscow by car. Visit the starkly contrasting Theatre Square to see the stunning Bolshoi Theatre, pass Tverskaya Street, the city’s main boulevard and home to the landmark Yeleseyevskiy Grocery Store.

You’ll enjoy a panoramic drive along the Moskva River, where a huge, controversial state of Peter the Great was erected. Pass by the legendary Gorky Park and the White House before a stop at the architecturally stunning Novodevichy Convent, and the observation platform at Sparrow Hills, for a bird’s eye view over this staggering megalopolis.

Day 2 Red Square and Kremlin

After breakfast at the hotel, your guide will take you on a walking tour of the historical city centre. Stroll through the Red Square, the hub of cultural life in Moscow, with its elaborate ‘stone flower’ fountain and fantasy-like St Basil’s Cathedral – a postcard-perfect symbol of the nation. Admire the grandiose façade of GUM, the city’s most luxurious shopping centre, and visit Alexander’s Garden, with its eternal flame and the chance to watch a changing of the guards.

Break for lunch before continuing on a tour of the Kremlin and Armoury Chamber, famous of its collection of tsarist fashion, with regalia such as jewel-encrusted crowns, orbs and sceptres as well as arms and armour, exotic gifts from the leaders of faraway lands, and an illustrious case of Imperial Faberge eggs.

As an option* spend an evening on a sumptuous dinner cruise, taking in the stunning sights and city lights of this mesmerising metropolis by night.

Day 3 Metro and Arbat Street

Start a day with a tour of Metro, stopping on the way to marvel at some of the most elaborately decorated stations of the world-famous Moscow subway system. Take a stroll along Old Arbat street - the most famous street in Moscow. Through the centuries Arbat used to be one of the most bohemian places in Moscow. Today Arbat is a promenade full of small cozy cafes and street life.

The afternoon is free for you to either enjoy the rest of the day on your own or choose among optional excursions to explore more of Moscow. Visit the Tretyakov Gallery or Pushkin State Museum to admire Russian art. Join locals for a stroll at the Gorky or VDNH park.

Visit beautiful Kolomeskoye Estate or Izmailovo Kremlin, or spend a day exploring the beautiful city of the Golden Ring (Russian province) - Sergiev Posad. In the evening you will be transferred to the airport for your departure to your next destination.

  2. Lange XT3 Pro Tour Backcountry Ski Boot

    The Lange XT3 Tour can drive some hefty all-mountain wide skis very effectively at speed and in difficult conditions. Part of this comes from the boot's aggressive forward angle in the cuff, a welcome element for skiers who prefer a forward stance as opposed to the more upright angles that most backcountry ski boots provide.

  4. Lange XT3 120 Review

    Our Verdict We grant the Lange XT3 120 one of our more specialized awards. It is an excellent product but is really only serviceable in a narrow niche of applications. If you want resort boots for occasional human-powered endeavors, you might justify these boots.

  8. Lange XT3 130 Ski Boot Review

    Price: $750 Weight per pair: 7 lbs. 14.3 oz. Flex: 130 What we like: An exceptional downhill companion for big lines and variable conditions. What we don't: Heavy; overlapping cuff inhibits range of motion while touring. Rating: (4.5/5) See the Lange XT3 130 See the Women's Lange XT3 110
