DC Phase? Any Good?

Hey, I'm looking into the 2014 DC Phase Snowboard Boot. It has great reviews so far. I'm leaning toward park riding and some all mountain.
My boot size is 8. My future setup will be a Burton Custom/Never Summer Evo Mini Board with Burton Freestyle bindings and(if this boot is good) the DC Phase boot.
Anyone have experience with this boot? Is this a good setup in general? Also, if possible, please tell me how good the Freestyle Bindings are(I've heard mixed reviews about it).
Thanks!

I have the ladies DC Phase from last year. It served me well as a cheap all-purpose boot--liners were great and super comfy. Gets hella soft and packs out a ton so the long term use isn't there if that is your plan. If you buy this boot over $80 you have spent too much.

Thanks for the info! I found the 2014 Phase for $74. It looks pretty sweet.
When you say it packs out a lot, how much? My shoe size is 8 so should I get a 7.5 since it packs out?

I found they ran kinda small to start-like I wear an 8.5 in athletic shoes and got a 9 and when I put that on I was thinking it was going to be too small bc the toes grazed but it ended up being fine after the pack. Not sure if this is the case this year.

Ah I see. My feet are technically 7.5 but I wear size 8 athletic. I guess I'll get a size 8 boot.
How long does it take to pack out? Should I wear the boots all day on my feet so it'll pack out?
Thanks for all the help!
