Boa is ok, but for me I could never get the boot to fit quite right. The system seemed to pull more on the upper parts of the lace and not the lower ones. This was addressed with double boa systems, one for the lower and one for the upper. I haven't tried on a pair yet but I get that solved the only problem I had with them.

Yes the BOA focus (double) is great. The jury is still out on DC boots, but I would say look elsewhere at this point. I had a pair of last years Allegiance that I bought late last season. With less than 20 days on them the outer stitching on the boot blew out. Now this could be a one off or a problem indicative of the line. I brought them back to the shop in early to mid May and they sent them back to DC. I still haven't heard a thing about what they are going to do.

Boa is fucking fantastic. DC boots fucking suck big hairy donkey balls and should be eliminated from the snowboarding world.

If you go with single boa and want it tighter in the lower region you need to flex into the boot. Boa is just like a ski boot, how you flex in it is how you'll make it tighter in other areas.

Is there any other brand that uses the Boa system other than DC boots. I know they all have their own fast system, but the question goes directly at BOA system.


Funny thing, in the Wakeboard industry Hyperlite has a couple of boots with the BOA system and they suck big time. They usually don't last more than a couple of months before giving out.
