This wil not replace real touring bindings but this wil definitely help if you want to do few days of backcountry skiing and don't want to spend over $1,000 in new skis and touring bindings. I just went to Canada and used the Alpine Trekkers. They really did the job very well. The other alternative was to carry the skis and wear snowshoes but I preferred my Trekkers with skinns. The initial setup is super easy. After that, it takes 2 seconds to install and remove. They are pretty light considering how strong they need to be. They pack pretty small too. I had a great experience with them. I was happy not to use snowshoes and carry my skis.
