I recently purchased these Burton Customs and I'm pretty happy with them so far. I've only used them twice, so I haven't got to really wear them in much. A couple times I noticed that the right cap strap would come loose during the middle of a run but it never really affected my riding. It wasn't a reoccurring problem but I have read a few reviews about these bindings and them having cap strap security problems. I like the lightly padded straps though, you feel locked in and I haven't had any discomfort after riding down the hill or up the lifts. If you got the money definitely upgrade to Burton Cartels but these are a good investment for beginning riders and people looking to get a decent binding for a reasonable price.
