I'm perplexed...A friend of mine swears he has less issues with binding strap slippage/loosening when he straps in and pulls the back of his pants over top of the back of the binding so there is no pant fabric between boot and binding. His claim is that it provides a tighter fit with the boot when you minimize the fabric of pants sandwiched between the boot and binding, and thus makes it easier to keep things tight without having to do lots of readjusting, especially on the front font that stays put all day.
Being a dynamic and aggressive rider, I always have to adjust both feet after steep/fast or technical runs requiring lots of flexion and extension since my size puts alot of stresses on the equipment.
I have always just stepped into the binding with the pants bottom in between the binding back and never thought this could have something to do with all the tightening adjustments I make after runs.
Does anyone consciously think that pulling down the pant leg overtop of the binding back helps things stay tighter?
Can't test this out until snow hits the PNW this winter but I never knew there might be a real benefit...Always thought it was a fashion thing.
No, your friend is mentally unstable. You should turn and run every time you see him.
