From the first pioneer in backcountry-specific boots comes the Men's Deeluxe Independent BC Snowboard Boot. Designed for hiking, skinning, and riding, these relentless backcountry boots expand your bounds as you discover new grounds. The DuPont Surlyn backstay stiffens the boot for reliable support and response that will last over time. Under the hood, they shell is outfitted with a Sympatex waterproof, breathable membrane and waterproof construction that prevents moisture from seeping into your boots, even if you're postholing through the deep stuff. The Thermo Flex liner is heat-moldable to allow you to get the perfect fit for your foot; its E-Lacing system help you crank down the tightness, and the integrated ankle harness prevents heel lift. Don't feel helpless and awkward when out of your bindings―the Independent features a Vibram oustole like that found on mountaineering boots for secure footing, and it's compatible with semi-automatic crampons, too. So, when delving into the outer reaches of the backcountry landscape, lace up these responsive boots and change the rules of the game.
