The skies opened up and the mortals were blessed with a new tool for getting rad.
The mortals demanded a better bindings of the gods and they delivered the Bent Metal Mortal Binding. In Norse circles, it was also known as the 'Gungnir,' or Odin's Spear. Makes sense, as they used it to slay parks, pillows, and whatever else they saw fit to destroy. The new-found response and power also gave them the agility they needed to avoid hungry saber-tooth tigers on the way down to the bone zone.

I'm loving these bindings. They are very solid and comfortable. I've used them at least 5 times now on 2 different boards. The only issue I have had is sometimes it's tough to take off the toe buckle but that was only one in every 8 runs or so. I haven't seen any signs of wear yet.
These bindings are very excellent and well worth the great deal Backcountry gives you.
Broke the first day riding...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
... the plastic strap release mechanism broke on my first ride of the day... luckily the adjuster on the opposite side of the top strap clips off easily or i would have had to cut it off... need less to say, i spent the rest of the day readjusting, etc... what a pain in the a$$.. you get what you pay for, so don't expect too much.

I got these bindings for my sister who is an advanced snowboarder. She LOVES them. They are easy to get in and out of, and quick to respond. She was surprised by how lightweight they are and thinks they are a great match with any boot.
