I'm on my second year with the Ride Jacksons. I ride all-mountain and park mostly, so I need something that's middle of the road. I'm not a big fan of softer boots, I like the response from stiffer boots - the Jackson's rate a 7 or 8 on Ride's scale (10 being most stiff).

I have terrible feet (flat footed, ankle problems, etc) and love these boots. It took me a while to get used to the Boa system - I usually adjust it two or three times throughout the day but honestly, this isn't a huge deal as its so easy to adjust. Otherwise, excellent boot - responsive as heck but I can still tweak and get buttery when I need to.

My .02!

I'll never wear anything but Salomon's again, their F series is where it's at for me.

How did you like the ions? I'm seriously considering buying a pair.

They were good for about 30 days if that

Then they start to fall apart, the leather on the top of the toes is coming apart

I bought them for the stiffness and they lost the stiffness real quick.

I wouldent recommend them, I convinced myself they wernt that bad but the truth is I was never happy with them.

My selects I ordered from backcountry.com came in two days from the USA to Canada. Super impressed on the quick shipping, ad free shipping. Haven't tried the boots yet, my gf just let me know it came last night. Thanks for that link I'll be using this site lots
