the bindings themselves are identical, the "LT" is the lightweight touring bracket. you want it for sure. it is a far more solid, durable, and stronger connection to the board when in touring mode. it does make a difference.

what do you guys do for splitting?

Lately I've been using the Arcteryx Alpha SV glove, mostly just the outer gtx shell without the liner (the liner is nice, but skinning up I run hot and going down I don't need as much hand warmth in the PNW. The glove is versatile enough to do rope work. This glove is not warm enough for really cold weather.

Previously I used a modular system by OR - gtx mitt shell without any padding / insulation, and then fleece mitt liner and / or wool glove liners of different thickness, as needed. Worked great for our wettish weather but mitts are not as good for knots and such.

I tried Black Diamond Pursuit gloves - great dexterity and breathable shell but got soaked in our spring conditions, so I'm not a fan and wouldn't recommend for splitting.

Kyle Miller splits with 2 pairs, the Petzl belay glove for skinning up, and another set of gloves but I don't remember what.

More solid? I've experienced that a LT pin brake during riding, be sure to bring a replacement with you...

if you don't have a replacement pin in your backpack when you're in the BC then you're a fool - that goes for steel the same as aluminum. i am 100% sure that sparks will replace that broken one.

but yes, without a doubt - even with that failure the LT system is way more solid than the voile brackets. the voile brackets have so much wiggle and play to them that they end up cutting a notch into the pins, and i'm sure the failure rate is just as high or higher with steel compared to aluminum.

if you were scared about your fat ass breaking a pin i guess you could always use steel pins with the LT bracket, although they say not to. regardless, carry a spare pin is pretty much as basic as carry water.

just to add, if that broke on the downhill - in ride mode - it's probably your fault for not having it seated/tucked in properly. it wouldn't just snap in half like that unless something was trying to bend it.
