Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bindings are great and were exactly what I wanted but failed me as the season went on. After 15+ tours, the entire brake plate popped off binding randomly during tours. On three separate occasions, I had to completely unscrew the entire heel piece in order to lock the brake plate back onto the track. They’re unskiable without the brake plate. There are two incredibly small plastic teeth that connect the brake plate to the heel piece that are the source of this issue. Somehow, the binding is flexing (due to the plastic) and allowing this piece to pop completely off with hardly any force. I took them to a shop twice and they said there was nothing they could do. This huge issue makes the binding unreliable for big days. I’m not the only instance of this happening either; if you do research you can find multiple accounts of this happening. Alpine mode is bomber, love it. Uphill is marginal due to brake release sensitivity, only one riser, and the defect with my pair. I would wait until they come up with a version 2 of this binding before purchase.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like this pack and some of the features but I have to give it one star because the brain simply doesn't stay on. This pack is fine when stuffed to the brim. When this pack is only half full, the brain just sags down so far that main container becomes exposed. Also since it's a hook strap attachment instead of a buckle, the buckle falls off due to the brain sagging. I've tried every configuration to get it stay on top but I know that I have it set up correctly and there's just no solving this problem. Don't buy it - you'll regret it.
