I have to give these bindings a 5. I bought them for my wife, in an effort to make her life a bit simpler...but no good deed goes unpunished. If you are a girl, and can strap in "standing up" (this is the most important part), then you will love these bindings. If you have to sit to strap in, then you will make an easy binding impossible. The high back is easier unlocked standing and further, needs to recline in order to step in. Imagine trying to recline your sofa with the wall right up against it; defeats the purpose, right? Bottom line, if you can't stand up to strap in, you'll hate these bindings. If you got the "standing" down...you'll be stoked.
