sure there are lots of high tech AT and telemark setups out there these days, but that doesn't take away from the functionality of an older design. These bindings are lightweight, simple, and dependable for use in the backcountry. I have also used them on groomers on lift accessible terrain. They work, but I would prefer something a little bit heavier duty. All in all, however, a good product. One beef I do have is with the climbing wires, which do not seem to interface perfectly with the heel pads. When I pop them up, the wires shear away bits of plastic from the edges of the pads. Aside from that, though, they work and are stable on the uphill.
