Atomic Backland Carbon Boot review

Discussion in 'Alpine Touring Gear' started by Sean Christen, Dec 30, 2015.

  1. 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.

    Awesome Sean! Looking forward to your thoughts after you get a few days on them.

    What was your last backcountry boot?
  3. My last backcountry boot was the La Sportiva Spectre.

    Wonder how the lateral flex would be in those without the upper cuff strap.. thinking like a snowboarder?
