I love these bindings, they are conveinent to get into and they fit well. I like the adjustabillity of having four straps compared to just two. Like everyone else it seems, on my fourth trip out with these the screw where the highback hinges fell off shortly after I straped in for a run, I went down the mountian a few fet before i noticed it, I walked back up and luckily found the peices. just tightening them before I go out should be enough to prevent this, plus it is just good maintenence. I find that facing up the hill is the quickest way to strap in. The real only annoying thing about the "step in" system is that even if are done in a literal 10 seconds you are still stuck waiting for your friends.
