Didnt really care for them because your board has to be either flat or you have to be facing uphill on your knees to lock them in. Plus the vent in the highback put about 4 good gouges in the heel of my boot trying to force my foot in. I got some heel life toe side, but when i straped them down tight, they were very comfortable. I give Back Country an A+ in customer service tho. I called them the day after i used them, shipped them back and got a full return. very good company.
