Own the patriot lights - so not the exact same, but hey. Super nice for a park binding - flexible, extremely light, eye-catching colors, and fast to clip in. The highback might be a little soft for freeriding, but paired with a mid-flex board it handled fine on higher-level runs for me. This is a freestyle binding though in its heart. The baseplate is very very thin, so you feel a lot of the board instead of dead spots. The quick-lock toe strap might piss some people off, but I like it and it works perfectly over the toe on my Burton Hails (though I hear fit with Salomon boots is even better). Padding is pretty minimum in the baseplate, but it's enough to handle a 15/20 foot jump (boots probably help a lot with that too).
