I'm happy with this binding, but there's a few things that could be improved. It's strong and stiff, which is the way I like my bindings. The straps are good quality and look like they will last a while. The footbeds are easy to remove although I leave them in.
I don't have a problem with needing a tool to make adjustments as I always carry one anyway. The only annoying thing with adjusting is that the bit you need for the ICS screws needs to be quite long as the 'rails' the screws sit in are quite high, that's definitely a design flaw.
I used to have cartels and I was expecting these to be lighter than those, but they're not.
