If the purpose of your purchase is for speed entry and exit, I would consider the Flow M9 or NXT series of bindings. If you pick up a pair from this year, you won't have any difficulty adjusting the binding to specific boots since you just tighten the cap like any other traditional binding with a few ratchets.

I have heard that the major downside of the contraband is powder riding. They are notorious for getting snow caught in the front strap contraption making things uncomfortable.

If speed of entry and exit is not your concern, go with the other Ride bindings. You might also do well by considering other brands like Rome 390s, or the currently hyped Union Forces. Flux also makes solid bindings.
