jim NAPIER's Bio

I'm from central vermont, a mountain biker, tele skier,alpine skier, and equestrian.

I like gear that i can't break, as I tend to be rough on my stuff. SO, once I find a manufacturer that makes something to mil-specs, I'm hooked.

Current gear favs are Black Diamond, MSR equipment, and the higher end North face stuff.

I have no ACL in my Right knee, and almost gave up freeheeling because my old bindings didn't release, and any crash sent me home with a swollen knee. Discovered these last year, (with leather Garmont boots!). I agree with everything that has been posted. Leather boots don't work. Period. Regarding the release: If the Din Setting was right, they released. If it was too high- they didn't. Are they a pain in the butt to get back into, yes. However, I prefer to fidget with the binding than pay a surgeon an ungodly figure to replace my knee! I just got rid of the leathers and am happy with my new Scarpa T2's. So, until I get the bucks to get the NTN setup (read bindings and boots at least another $700!), I will stick with these. (I gave 4 stars, not 5, for the pain in the ass factor.)
