Perfect! Retention is so important to injury prevention. Nothing worse than a inadvertent release when it’s least expected, especially at speeds greater than 15mph. Very informative video on all aspects of “low-tech” binders..

Everyone seems to be going AT, then I see many of them on backcountry trails with undulating terrain finding out that either they need to keep skins on the entire time, or laboriously sidestep up every hill higher than 6″ whereas we tele folks have our skins off and just keep kicking/gliding along. I see it every trip out. AT is bested suited for constant uphill followed by constant downhill. Any other terrain quickly reveals the disadvantages of the AT setup. AT has an advantage when skiing downhill, which in real backcountry travelling is about 10-15% of the total time spent on the skis. Hardly worth it based on that.
