I had previously posted a review(below) on this product shortly after buying it, and at the time was not entirely sure if they were right for me. I decided to make some adjustments with the four ratchet straps for a different fit, then forced myself to just ride and use them for a couple of days. I was so used to traditional strap-in bindings and strapping in by putting my heel in first before the toes, it felt quite awkward. Now that I have gotten used to them, they are fast for getting in and out of, responsive(after doing fine adjustments with the ratchets on the sides and "breaking them in" for a couple of days), and my preferred binding of choice now. They make take some getting used to for some, but fit right, they are comfortable, responsive, fast, and have suited me very well, when instructing, ski(board) patrolling, and recreationaly used.
