Shaun White’s binding of choice. What more do you need?
The Mission Snowboard Binding has been a staple in the Burton lineup for years. Every season riders think it’s reached the peak, and every year it gets a little better. This season makes no exception thanks to plush straps, ultralight construction and a unique look that won’t quit.
- Superstrap ankle strap locks you in without creating pressure points
- Smooth glide buckle technology saves time while you�re strapping in
- Medium stiffness provides the versatility to handle any terrain
- Short-glass and nylon composite keep things light and strong

Are these bindings compatable with feather snow board ..?
Feather as in the Feather from burton? Yes it is. It is compatible.

I have size 13 boot and i saw large had 10+ I'm assuming that they wouldn't be too snug correct?
It should work, but it could be a snug fit depending on the brand of boots you have!
I have a size 13 boot and use these bindings with no problem.
Na it won't be snug. Its all good. Run the large and it will fit no problem.
piece of mind..
look i don't know shit about shit..but I'm gonna toot my own horn, i rip it up when i ride...i've had a couple of drake bindings a pair of technine pro mfm...and now i have the burton missions..these things strap on tight AND fast...i dig em.
mine are metal so they're pretty strong, light and durable..
in short, if your feet had a brain, your footies would have a piece of mind when you strap up.
good purchase. get 'em....or else.
just had a pair snap in half while riding dont buy a plastic binding go metel
these bindings are pretty nice. i got some in red and they have worked good so far. everything stays tight and they have the perfect flex for riding in the park. it doesn't take long to put them on, and they unstrap super smooth.
Nice starter binding
I would have still been riding these if some lame ass hadn't stolen them from me a couple years ago at Brighton.
on a mission
these are great bindings. they ride anything and everything, theyr a great compliment to the burton custom which also can ride everything. the only problem with them is that they have pressure points when you have a hard fall on the nose or tail.
they are industructable they have great response. the straps get jammed sometimes tho

i have a size 8 boot and i ordered these in a medium well it fit right?
yessir, there's also a huge range of adjustability in the ankle and tow straps as well as the toe ramp.

Besides the obvious cost difference, what are the main comparison points between the Missions / Customs and the Cartels. Am I going to see a large spread of performance? or is it mainly just customization?
In the Cartel you have a taller, more ergonomic highback. This alone is a huge difference along side the stronger ratchets, and B3 cushioning gel in the heel. The Cartel also has a flex of 7 where the mission is 5. so it is more responsive and fullbed cushioning.
I have these mounted on my Volkl Riot 157, and they are a great match flex wise for my park needs. Torsionaly stiff enough to be responsive, but soft enough laterally to not be a hindrance on rails.
Pretty good everywhere
Whats the difference between the newer...
Whats the difference between the newer models and my mission bindings from 2003 with the toe cap? Trying to decide whether to keep using my old ones on a new lib tech trs btx or buy a new pair.
The largest difference come in trickle down technology from better bindings and material construction.
These bindings are similar to a Cartel or better from 2003: More comfortable straps, better cushioning under foot, a more grippy cap strap, a better high back with more precise forward lean adjustment, tool-free strap adjustment, better buckles... All and all, the bindings have a had quite a few upgrades over the years.
The most similar part is the short-glass polycarbonate construction. Better/slightly lighter materials have been used but its a similar feel.
great set of bindings
The Missions have everything I need in bindings. They are lightweight, they are fairly flexible (the description says medium stiffness), and the straps are very comfortable (although I added the Ultra Capstraps to my bindings). Overall, just a great set of bindings - definitely better than the Freestyles I started with.

way nice bindings
These bindings are indestructible, save for the little foam piece on the lip of the back. Super cushiony and the buckles slide on and off way easily. Screws get a little tweak each time i go out but that's it.

I am looking for the right Burton Snowboard binding. I have a wide Burton board. I have size 14 feet, and like to carve. I am generally looking for stiffness. What's the best binding?
Mission is a medium flexing binding. You may want to check out the Burton CO2, C60, or Cartel.
i've got two pairs of these one for the resort board and one for my splitboard. and with the deals you can find on backcountry and steapand cheep, etc., these can't be beat. not sure all the extras your getting with some of those $450 pair of bindings, but i can't imaging paying that much for bindings. the plush straps are comfy. the cap straps are awesome (could never go back to regular toe straps). these bindings seem to have everything you need for all mountain riding. of course my first set of burton bindings were on my elite 140, and they were just molded plastic high backs with webbing and fastex buckles, so what do i know? :)
these bindings are great for in the park and out on the hill!!
