These are great light weight bindings. I had the on my BD Verdicts and liked them so much i put them on my Atomic Bent Chetlers. For me they are plenty of binding to handle that type of "big ski" granted i don't huck, i don't ski too fast and i try to stay upright (or hip check when i am getting out of control - so i don't blow up if i can help it). Once you get used to the mechanisms they are very easy to use both for downhill and touring. The best part is they are SO LIGHT they let you tour longer and ski more. They are worth every penny.

I have 3 days on these now, 2 good powder days at Alta and one chopped up day at the bird. They rock in soft snow conditions as well as chopped up snow. They are adequate on the groomers (ie you don't feel like you are going to die). I am so excited to get on these more.
Stats - i am 5'6" about 175#, i ski them mounted with Dynafits mounted on the "team line" with BD Shivas. I ski Alta and the backcountry/slackcountry in the area.

Yes, according to the specs on the Alpina Lite page http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/Alpina-Lite-Terrain-Ski/ALP0253M.html?CMP_ID=SH_FRO001&CMP_SKU=ALP0253&mv_pc=r126 you can use an AT binding. As for boots, maybe look at the Scarpa F1 - it's super light, but any boot with the dynafit compatible hardware on the toe and heal will work - mostly it depends on your foot shape and how the boot fits.

yes it is worth it - a good barrel pump will a) not break b) cut the time it takes to inflate the raft or kayak in 1/2 and c) get the boat harder - the NRS pump will not have enough power to put enough pressure in the boat (kayak or raft) to make it perform properly.

I would recommend a barrel pump (a good one) so it doesn't take forever to blow up. This one looks pretty nice http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/Aire-Barrel-Pump-4-in/ARE0009M.html or try the K-Pumps - the eliminate the hose so it's much easier to transport and keep on the river with you. Whatever you do get a Summit2 valve adapter. http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.asp?pfid=1493.1 This will enable you to inflate the boat much more efficiently and without needing someone else to hold the pump hose in place.
