these bindings are pretty solid. i had an older pair of team bindings and these ones never had any of the minor problems i've had with previous technines. the adjustable straps have not come loose once and seem pretty durable. i've had little more than 15 days with these and all is going great. i love the scrub hook, my presses and butters have improved immediately. i really like the simple look too, nothing flashy or bright. the only reason they don't get 5 stars is because they took a little while longer to break in then i would have liked. that aside super good buy.
