These Ruler boots are comfortable mid flex boots, they are true to size, warm, and over all a good bargain. The one problem I have with it is the lacing system - I'm lazy, and I tend to rest my board on my left foot while I sit on lifts going up. The edge of my board can and did cut into the lacing cables. The cables fray easily and are difficult to replace/repair. Apparently, according to Burton's forum, this is a common problem, and the standard fix is to get replacement cables from them. Its a hassle and the repair itself is time consuming. A minor design tweak can fix this (like adding a small flap over the cables), and this problem has been around for years. I have no idea why Burton hasn't done anything about it. Its still a pair of comfortable boots, just gotta treat it gently
These are the best boots for this price. They are quick and easy to tie up by pulling strings for your inner and outer boot. It's very warm and comfortable. I tried boa system, but I felt some loosy on my ankle, but this is perfect for me.
Pros: quick and easy release, easy to adjust, cheap price
I demo'd this binding. it is very impressive. I used to use step in binding, and after I saw this product, I decided to purchase this one. Super easy to entry and release. I don't need to wait for new step-in binding product.
