Does anyone out there possess the ability to lace up while wearing gloves? If I have to adjust my laces on the mountain, or even remove my boots to pull a pebble out, I have to take my gloves off and it's bloody freezing. Am I completely uncoordinated, are my gloves too big, or is this plain impossible to do?
I do like the look of SL and BOA systems, but I'm paranoid of having BOAs break on me during a powder day.
I have a pair of DC BOA boots, and they're amazing. If the boots feel a little loose after a run (usually after the very first run of the night, getting everything adjusted) I just pull the pants up and give it a few twists. As for the breaking, These boots have seen 3 seasons of boarding, and don't look much worse for the wear.
