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.
