by fromGood enough binding, but... This binding is lighter and less bulky than using your regular bindings with an adapter plate. The construction of the rail and footbed is very good: it inspires confidence. I was surprised to find that the binding straps were of less bomber construction than you would find on a similarly-priced downhill binding. There is little padding, the range of adjustment is small (and requires a screwdriver, rather than a using a cambuckle). Carry a spare strap and the included multi-tool in the backcountry in case something breaks. The highbacks are a little uncomfortable in touring mode, so loosen your boots and adjust the highbacks to a more gentle incline when switching over to avoid calf pain. If you're installing these onto new splitboard pucks, put a little wax on the rails the first time: they'll slide on and off easier. Overall a good binding if you're going to wear soft-boots in the backcountry.
