    Thats a good point. I've noticed that too with ski boots. I've only been snowboarding twice, and my whole body hurt so much I didn't notice my feet were sore.

    Motor Fist has a new boot out that my wife has instructions to buy for my b-day. Looks and feels like a solid boot, water-proofing with Event fabric, not too stiff with what looks like great traction. I will post a product review after the snow flys.

    Looks like the bibs and jackets are very well constructed. Cascade Motorsports carries the full line of Motor Fist gear and are very knowledgable about the product. I currently own a full set of Klim gear and am very happy with it.

    I think I'm going to try these boots. Seems like if it doesn't say Gore-Tex it's not waterproof in my experience. If I don't like them I'll return them.

    I was gonna hold out and get some Klim boots; but I went in to Cascade Motorsports and talked with Mike and John today. I ended up trying on the Motorfist boots and I have to say; they were really comfortable, flexible, and very good quality. I walked around a bit and decided I'm sold on these. I know it's hard to tell without a ride report from being waist deep in snow with the air temp around zero; but from what they told me; this "E-vent" material actually works better than Gortex. So I went ahead and got em. Nice lookin boots! And I'm really picky about the looks and comfort of footwear.

    Huh? You mean REI isn't a core snowmobile gear outlet? Jus Kiddin of coarse! Seriously.....don't take me seriously. I did buy a kayak from them though. Way overpriced.... but not as bad as Alder Creek (Newley Tumalo Creek and "Hobie" pricing) REI is a good example of hypocricy in business. Supporting movements that will eventually put yourself out of business is ludicrous! (Don't get me started on politics. I have no patience or tolerance) Sorry; was that out loud?

    You should all check out Korkers new winter line of boots. The IceJack will be great for the sled. The key technology is the interchangeable soles and the BOA laces that allow you to tighten them without taking off your gloves. They come with two soles in the box; one rubber lug sole and the other is studded with carbide tips allowing you to become a 4WD car when walking on snow. They are absolutely awesome. Great support, warmth and the ability to change soles allows you the perfect blend of comfort and traction. They were also mentioned in the latest editions of BACKPACKER MAGAZINE as well as OUTSIDE MAGAZINE. Or you can check them out on www.Korkers.com.

    Well; now I've been riding twice; and the Motorfist boots are great! For the first time since I was a kid playing in snow; my feet stayed warm. (Thats why I'm "Chilly") The treads are agressive; and I had no problem slipping on my side boards. (Of coarse the boards on a PRO are like razorwire. They were comfortable and dry all day long. I'd give them an "A-" (just because they don't look very cool)
    So.......now the gloves. The Motorfist gloves although warm are a pain in the butt. The innerliners come out with your fingers when removing them, and when you put them back on; you have to unravel them to get your fingers back in. If you've had them off for awhile, and your hands are frozen; it's gonna take you awhile. I'd rate them a "C".

    alright everyone i appreciate the input i am leaning towards the Klim Adrenaline GTX. but i was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the HMK boots. All my gear is HMK and I love it. but i was curious about the Team and the Voyager ones. I am pretty sure I would avoid the BOA system completely. so yeah if anyone has any input good or bad on the HMK boots... fire it this way
    Take me to where the white stuff is!!!!

    I ride with the hmk prO with the boa system. I have had them for 2 years. Depends on where you ride? I like my boots. I think they are great if you are an aggressive rider. My ankles are very well supported. I feel like they put my feet in the right spot on technical climbs. The hmk's grip the rails. A lot of riders would no like them because of the size. P


    I see you live in the valley the adrenaline and motor fist are more like hiking style boots

    I would buy my hmk's again and will soon they will be done after3-4 hrs of heavy riding. The other styles will last longer.

    UPDATE: 7 times out and the Motorfist boots are still working great! No sore feet from walking. No cold; no restriction of blood flow. (tingling) And the laces haven't come untied yet. They have a twist to the laces, and they stay tied tight without binding up in the eyelets.

    I tried some on over in Bend this last summer and they felt good on my feet. I think maybe I'll be getting myself some this summer. Keep us updated on this boot please.
