A super-solid board for little groms. It's my son's first board, and I'm guessing we'll have it for a while based on a look at the construction. The binding mounts are just like the grown-up boards, which is great - I mounted the bindings at the beginning of a week-long trip, and they hadn't loosened at all when I pulled them off to pack up. Worth noting that the board is drilled to accept any binding, three- or four-hole, so you're not necessarily confined to Burton's (excellent) junior bindings.

My nine-year-old is riding these for the first time this year, and they're excellent bindings - from the mounting system to on-mountain use. I was stunned to find that the highbacks can be adjusted independently of the binding, allowing you to square them with the edge of the board - makes proper riding much easier, and this wasn't a commonly available bit of tech a few years ago. The toe strap is Burton's excellent "cap strap" - no downward binding pressure on little toes. Very high-quality strap mechanisms. Sizing - my son's in size-two boots, and I had to go to the smallest adjustments to make the bindings work. No biggie, but if you're smaller than a size two these aren't going to work for you.

My nine-year-old is riding these for the first time this season - they're exceptionally solid, very no-frills boots. Sizing runs true - if your little guy wears a 1.5, buy the size 2. The boa system is extremely easy for youngsters to use, and it was VERY nice to not have to deal with lacing boots each morning. Subtle graphics let the world know he's ready to throw it down.

Only knock is that there was ZERO documentation in the box with the boots - how/where the sizing shims are is therefore a bit of a mystery. I'm sure it's easy to figure out, but minimal documentation would be a nice gesture on a $100 kid's boot.

Just installed the tracks on the top of my '08 FJ, and they absolutely rock. Totally low-profile rack solution, keeps the additional height of adding a rack to the absolute minimum. Interesting to note that the Yak tracks are identical to the Thule racks - once they're installed, you can install either brand's towers.

I'd echo everything erich mentions, with a few caveats, the most significant being the "vehicle-specific mounting guide" provided by Yakima. I was surprised to learn (and I'm generalizing here) that, unless installing the tracks on a pre-2001 vehicle, you're very likely NOT to have specific instructions for your truck/car. So your install's probably going to require a slight bit of winging it, which might make some nervous, considering you're drilling directly into the roof of your ride. Certainly made me jittery. If you can chat with a professional installer (like the Rack Attack guys), do so - you'll feel a bit better about doing it yourself. You should also know that Bondo sells a patch/repair kit, probably available at your local auto parts store for ten bucks.

Otherwise the install directions are crystal-clear, and it's actually a very simple process once you get the first one or two figured out. And the end product is absolutely rock-solid. Highly recommended - but Yak REALLY needs to update the vehicle guide (or at least put it on the web!).
