    Question on Klim boot comparison

    Have a set of Klim Radium GTX boots with removable liner... they fell apart so Klim is going to send me a new set or any set of comparable price.

    I normaly take a size 9.5-10 boot & find that the Radiums w/liner were still a little snug at size 12 & my feet would get cold. So Id need size 13 & use there new 1/2size insert?? But that's a huge boot now.

    How do guys rate the Adrenaline GTX or the Arctic GTX? I see lots of Adrenaline boots for sale used & new on other sled sites. So wonder why???

    Just want warm dry feet with a boot that fits. Thanks for any input

    Re: Question on Klim boot comparison

    I've had the Radium GTX with the removable liner for the last 3 winters and have always found them to be extremely warm and always dry, they are however big and clunky. A number of friends have the more compact Adrenaline GTX and they have never had a problem, so I actually picked up a pair of BOA's at the Edmonton show, and although I haven't had a chance to try them yet the difference in outer size and weight is surprising.

    Thanks, how did you find the sizing for the new Adrenalines? I have to wait & find a dealer that carries some boots so I can try them on & get back to Klim with which boots I want to go with.

    The Adrenalines are one size bigger than the Radiums - the same size just seemed a little too short in length even with thin socks when trying them on. The only downside, the next bigger size is perfect in length (can't make the toes touch the front) but feels looser around the heel.

    I use the Adrenaline boot. It might be a little unfair to take my information as where/when I ride is considerably warmer. My cut off temp used to be -20 and I am now at nothing below -15. Feet are always dry and never cold until I've used them into the third year (about 180 days). Then they get wet from the outside.

    I wear a size 8 shoe and a size 9 in the Adrenalines. Love the Adrenalines!

    Re: Question on Klim boot comparison

    Thanks guys. Its funny I used to wear a plain set of HMK with liner that seemed super thin & never got cold or wet. Then the HMK started to get wet(8yrs) & I bought Motorfist Stomers...my feet froze even with there sock layers, so I got the Radium super thick & feet are warm if I wear thin socks as the boots aren't wide enough even with size 12 & I only wear 9-10 in a shoe.

    Im just wondering to go with adrenaline or the arctic GTX?? Cold Lake, Alberta we only get so many ride days, -5 or -30 Im still out there.
