well my review might be partially byass, since I haven't even tested these bindings yet...I went to the backcountry store in salt lake to pick these bindings up and check them out before I bought them. First off I noticed poor craftsmanship such as glue stains and creases in the leather. I also tested the quick adjust system on the toe and ankle strap. I questioned how well it would actually hold, I then tried to adjust the ankle strap to make it tighter. The poor locking mechanism was hard to adjust, it felt like I was going to break it to get it tight. Bottom line I would go with something else.
