Marker Griffon 13 Binding

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Pretty horrible option for the price. Not durable, low elasticity, very high stack. Plastic. A beginner would like this binding. I am not really sure why you would ever consider buying this binding. 1st, for a 12 din binding the elasticity of the spring is very low, which means they pre-release way too often. 2nd, the binding is mostly of plastic construction, which means that it will not hold up very well over the course of its somewhat shortened lifetime. 3rd it is a bulky binding that raises… Full review

Atomic Tracker 16

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I truly forget I am on an AT binding when I am skiing these inbounds. Out of bounds, they are awesome. Easier to use than the Duke. Don't get jammed up as easily. Can switch in a breeze. I used to use the Marker Duke, but I like these much better.  Of course, these are FAR from a lightweight touring binding.  These FEEL lower on the ski than the Duke, and seem to feel lighter. They also don't get sloppy after 3 months of using them.  I truly forget I am on an AT binding when I am skiing these… Full review

Dynafit TLT Radical ST

rated 4.5 of 5 stars They work. Light weight. Secure holding when locked down. Enjoyed using these bindings this last winter. A few challenges learning how to get locked in and managing the steps but after the second trip, things were good. You can, with a pole tip, turn the heal piece all the way around to switch from walk to ski or back. Took some practice.   Though I am a lightweight, have no problems carving the hard pack on the way back to the lodge. These are much better than the clunky first pair of bindings… Full review

G3 Onyx

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great binding for BC laps and skiing. More intuitive than Dynafits. Love Dynafits too, but these are tad different. I have the Dynafits and the G3 Onyx. Let me say both setups are great. I love my Dynafits for BC days and touring; however if I'm taking some runs and want to push the ski, I would prefer the G3. G3 is a tad heavier but I love the fact you can switch from skin mode to ski mode without releasing toe piece and vice versa. While capable of switching to skin to ski mode via ninja pole… Full review

G3 Onyx

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very capable and reliable BC ski binding, while not in the lightweight league of the Dynafit low-tech does have the massive advantage of being able to be swapped between skis. After about eight seasons of using the Fritschi Freerides I splashed out on a new ski set up, moving to the G3 Onxy binding mounted on a set of 2011-12 K2 Hardsides, paired with the 2011 Garmont Radiums and have been using them  for one (southern hemisphere) season 2012. I now have two set ups — as above for my… Full review

Backcountry Access Alpine Trekker

rated 3 of 5 stars Affordable way of accessing the backcountry and becoming introduced to off piste skiing. Short term solution before spending the money on a real touring setup. This is a great for skiers who want to try touring and accessing the backcountry for the first time. This product is affordable and you do not need to commit to investing hundreds of $$$ on a touring set up.  Buyer beware though, you get what you pay for. Slower transition time leaves you lagging behind your partners and the fragile parts… Full review

Marker Duke

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Easily adjustable for the way up, and bomb proof on the way down. Haven't ridden a better binding for touring. Very happy with my Marker Dukes. Always had issues with early release on the lower din bindings, with the Dukes I am confident my skis are staying on! The only issue is with closing the binding into riding mode on the switch over, can be a pain with ice build up in the tracks. Would reccomend these to any larger, charging backcountry skier who can haul up the weight for the downhill benefit. Full review

Marker Baron

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The Duke's little brother didn't live up to the hype. The Baron's bigger brother, the Duke, is pretty popular amongst powder addicts who like to earn their turns occasionally. At 155 lbs I reckoned I didn't really need the Duke's DIN 16 so I went for the Barons and mounted them onto a pair of Line SFBs. These were the first Marker product I purchased in a long time and I was keen to see how they would perform. They felt solid while skiing and the extra height is not an issue. While you should not… Full review
