Its unusual three-buckle shell is almost a hybrid of cabrio and traditional overlap, offering the best of both. Its stance is new-schoolishly upright. And its releasable cuff and rockered sole make it as comfortably mobile as any boot in the category. So testers are always surprised by how well the QST skis—with more snow-feel and edge awareness than they expect from any three-buckle boot. “It delivers a firm, progressive flex,” said Adams. “Hike range of motion is great, and it locks up solid for the downhill.”
