Soloman makes pretty rad bindings as well. I've had the solomon poisons for four years and they still look brand new and in style. Its worth it to pay a little more cuz then your not having to replace toe straps like every other week!
These shorts are awesome!!! I have theme in purple and they're a lot brighter than in the picture. They are my absolute favorite but they're really short. So I wouldn't wear them in public unless you like showing cheek, but they're cute to wear to bed or at the beach :)
