I puchased these bindings after seeing a fellow boarder on the hill with them. I hated sittin down and strapping up, it takes too long. I tried them out and I was elated on how easy they were to "strap" up. I even hooked in on the lift, no down time from lift to hill. I will recomend these to everyone that asks. I am thinking of buying another pair for my other board too. Price was right on sale too.
