I'm with Thredjack on this one!!!!!
They might be cheap but I reckon it kinda defeats the purpose of buyin ya own gear?????
For example, a free plastic bag can save dollars and keep the snow off you, but will it be as comfortable as a proper fitting breathable jacket?????
When someone purchases their gear, I'll always recommend a pair of properly fitted boots with the right flex, over any other piece of equipment as their first buy!!!!!
Then followed by Gloves and Outerwear!!!!!
Board/Binders come in as pretty much last on the list!!!!!
The main reason why hire boots feel okay is they're soft flexing and mostly that packed out, that they're actually comfortable to wear!!!!! As for being practical to use on an ongoing basis?????
