I picked up some 32 TM2 XLT Jones variants for touring because I didn't want to wreck my Adidas. Pretty burly. I'm surprised they're not marketed as split-specific boots. Powerstrap, half gaiter, flexible elastic spot around the calf, heel welt for a crampon, SUPER burly Vibram outsole.

Took 'em out at Northstar a couple days ago to get them dialed. Breaking these in is going to suck, but I made a pretty good purchase.

The Jones MTB is, not sure about the XLT, seems more of a freeride boot

Yep. Jones has 2 pro boots with 32:

  • $600 Jones MTB with the full gaiter and that crazy boa walking mode.
  • Jones TM2 XLT which is a beefed up TM2.

Former is 100% obviously a touring boot, latter marketed more as a general "freeride" boot but feels like a hybrid mountaineer / snowboard boot. Not up to the level of a Fitwell, but on par with say Deeluxe Spark XV or K2 Aspect.
