2 days with these and both of my kids MUCH prefer these over last years AT-SE models. The ratchets are much superior and the movement of the binding when opening it really makes it possible to make them tight and leave them in place. The kids like that you can also use them as strap ins if they want. All around, it's a true winner and a huge upgrade. The quality of the materials seems far superior. The only issue was when it got really cold. My ratchets didnt perform well, but neither did anything else including my fingers. I would say it was single digits, so we didnt last long out there anyway.
