Pros: Great fit and stellar performance

Cons: Not for the bird legs.



Having been skiing the Nordica Patron and this boot back to back, I find there are many similarities in fit and performance. The area that the Tecnica differentiates is in the instep in both exit and entry(with Tecnica's 'Quick instep" design) and fit when skiing. I didn't realize how well the Tecnica's "Quick Instep" worked until I was skiing the Patron Pro and tried to get out of it when it was real cold and it wasn't happening, an issue I never experienced with the Tecnica. 


Note: this boot dropped $100.00 for 2013
