Comments about Plum Yak Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2013:
Used on a hut trip in colorado. This is my first tech binding, but I have used other tour options in the past like the marker tour and mfd. I can say I am sold on the tech style bindings. I'm 6 ft 215 lbs without a pack. They toured easily and were surprisingly easy to get used to. Adjusting the volcano heel was extremely easy and there is a positive "click" when it engages. They are extremely light weight and seem incredibly durable. The only draw backs would be the leashes that it comes with. They wrap around your leg with a loop style closure and it can be difficult to get them off quickly. I had trouble with that while practicing beacon searches. I have changed them to a g3 leash with a clip so I can take them off easily. Also while touring the screws that mound the toe piece to the interface plate became loose over a few miles. I would suggest backing them out and applying locktite to them to prevent losing them and carry the correct size torx wrench to tighten them if need be. Over all I would highly recommend them
