    Hey jong, you need liners that fit, are light weight, have good articulation, and are warm... probably in that order.

    For me, Intuition cannot be beat for balancing these attributes.

    Zipfits use firmer materials that are heavier and pack out much more slowly. Their outright ski performance is tops.

    so is it a bad idea to try and tour in them?

    I've used intuitions for years and I've heard tons of hype about zipfits. Would be down to try something new, but if they tour like shit then they ain't for me.

    thanks for your help here!!

    I know you're not a jong, mang. Zipfits belong in the heavy shells, imo

    ^^^^ this. Zipfits ski amazingly well but theyíre heavy AF. On my scale thereís almost a pound (~ 425g) difference per foot between my Intuition PWs and my Zipfits (Garas or WCs, canít remember which).

    Yeah, they're definitely not meant for touring. That being said, if you're the kind of skier who doesn't own dedicated alpine and touring boots, and who skis something a Zero G in and out of bounds, I could see there being some real benefit to using a Zipfit on the days you're riding lifts.

    I would be in if there is a zip fit that can be comfortably molded to my 106mm foot

    The forefoot and toebox are neoprene, they should stretch enough.

    Like you, I have wide-ass hobbit feet. I finally went zipfit and wondered why I waited so long. Excellent. Shell fit is even more important here.

    Can confirm: source, I have high-volume flipper feet.
