All for under $400 retail and they're made start to finish in CA.
I've never experienced ice anywhere else but man does Bear/Snow Summit get pretty icy in the Spring. For a couple hours at least. Then its corn. Then it's slush (and time to go home). But I haven't needed it.
Any M/L binding will be fine with a size 7 boot.
