I was skeptical to get these non-traditional bindings, but I like Mervin gear, so I went for it! Not a fan. Getting in and out of them seems easy but it requires a whole different balance (if you like strapping in while standing up). The toe straps don't hug my boot. Also when I get stuck in powder and try to reach down and unstrap while brushing away snow I become frustrated trying to peel them off. I worry about getting into a hairy situation that requires me getting out of them with a broken back. I miss the traditional bindings. I am trying to sale them off. Maybe there for you, but not for me.
