I recently bought a pair of the Atomic Backland AT boots. It's a two buckle boot that has a very unique heat moldable shell that's right, a heat moldable shell. The boot feels absolutely amazing since the liner and the shell are a perfect fit to my foot. I have skied once on them but this weekend I will get a chance to really test them in the North Cascades. The boot has a whopping 74 deg of movement in walk mode. And man does it feel great. More later.
