I got these bindings recently, along with a pair of Scarpa Matrix AT boots, and I love this setup. Like others have said, there's no loosening of the bindings, like with straps, there's much better power transfer, and the bindings weigh half as much as my strap bindings, which were on the low-end of the weight scale. Much faster and easier to get in and out of bindings, and dramatically speed up transition times. Ski boots are great for booting up coulies, are much warmer, and work better with crampons. Though ski boots weigh more than snowboard boots, just remember that you're likely to carry your board on your pack, but your boots stay on your feet...
