It's a little hard to get your foot in and out of the binding because the hiback catches your heel when you try to lower it down or pull it up. but other than that the bindings feel solid. 2 days is rediculous however and i really hope flow realizes this for such an expensive binding.
I noticed the exact same issues when I was fitting the bindings to my boot. I couldn't get them in easily without having to grab the toe cap (defeating the purpose of the rear entry binding for me) and positioning it on my boot, then after I got my boot in I couldn't lock the highback cause it caught the heel.

It's like they made the footbed too short for the binding. You have to loosen the ratchets in order for it to be a "slip on" rear entry. I'm going to buy FLOW bindings this year but not this style. Great idea, poor design.

I wondered about the toe caps being too small.
