Have had the boots for less than one year, and make it out most weekends. Am having to replace the boa cables on my second boot now. The system is very convenient but replacing them is a total pain, and they are much more expensive than just replacement laces. I think the Boa technology would be great for some applications but wading boots is definitely not one of them. Am considering replacing boots that are in great condition because the cables are such a pain and break unexpectedly. Have spoken with several friends who've had similar experiences. The cables need to be much larger to avoid abrasion and failure. Will not buy them again.

Now ordering my 3rd and 4th repair kits, after owning a pair of the RiverTed 2 Boa Boot. I will be looking around for new boots very soon!

Had to purchase 2 kits in a month because the wire on each boot gave out. Will always keep an extra on hand.

first time I've had the BOA's. You'll want to hedge your bet if you have a breakdown on a far away trip which is why I bought the repair kit.
Tool, instructions made it easy to take apart the BOA, see the workings, and make sure I could put it together again without any problems in the woods.
For $ 12 - cheap insurance.
but one suggestion - why not simply charge $ 5 more for the boot and toss a repair kit in the box at cost?
