I have really enjoyed my Cartels. They are one of Burton's tried and true bindings. Mid flex, comfy footbed, and pretty plush but minimalist straps as well with no pressure points. You CAN find more comfortable straps but they are usually 5lb pillows. The B3 gel on the footbed is legit, and there are pleanty of adjustable features like you would find on most high end bindings.
I also always love Burton's ratchets, they run smooth and last for quite a while. I usually strip my straps way before the actual ratchet teeth and I crank the holy crap out of my bindings. Replacement straps are $5 at my local shop.
I wear an 8.5 Burton boot and have these in a Medium. All my straps and adjustments are in their middle positions. They could go smaller or bigger still.
