I give these bindings 4/5 because even though they don't work for me, they are a nifty (albeit heavy) item.
So, lets preface this with saying that I ride size 21.5 boots - sole length of 277. Had a chance to use the o1's this past weekend (with the short barrels) and while they kept my boots in, I couldn't get them nearly tight enough to feel comfortable getting aggressive. Even with the barrels tightened to their max, on brand new boots, there was a little bit of play in the heel that made me leery. That, and they look really silly on smaller boots. I think there was more binding than boot.
Overall, got the job done skinning up, I do like the ease of adjustment from ski to tour and back, but not suitable for small boots, regardless of what their size chart says. I returned my o1s and bought some Bombshells instead.
