Default Best Womens Bindings?

I tried looking around for the answer and failed. when i could actually find a pair that was reviewed, there would be only 1 or 2 opinions if im lucky.

Im thinking of getting my sister a pair of bindings for christmas...
She's a committed beginner (22 years old, ~110lbs) that can go down greens without falling and a few blues (east coast)
this is her second season, her first season was 3 years ago and just had a set of bad days to turn her off.
Pretty sure shes looking for a pair that are comfortable, easy to unstrap, allmountain (no freestyle), and white *in order of importance*. Also if its on the cheaper side thatd be a plus

What are some good women snowboard bindings/companies? If a binding co. has good stuff in their men's line, is the quality the same into women's?

I quit looking for reviews on female bindings after I found the millionth review that sounded something like this: "OMG!!! I LOVEEEEE these bindings!!! I haven't had a chance to ride them yet, but they are so nice!!!!"

Ride, Rome, and K2 are my top picks.

My first bindings were Burton Stilettos, which I loathe to the depths of my soul, mostly because they were impossible to get in and out of. I replaced them with Ride Vxn bindings, which I found to be a good mid-range binding. My current bindings are K2 Virtues, which I love - absolutely no problems with the straps, ratchets, or ladders. They are comfortable and adjustable as well.

There are some good reviews on women's bindings here: Shayboarder.com.

Not sure how long the runs are on the East coast, but here in the Midwest things are a lot shorter than the big time resorts like Breck. My wife picked up a pair of 2009 Flow NXT Prima's this year since we do ride a lot of short runs around here. Is's an awesome binding. It's as sound as my NXT AT's (same year). Just thought I'd mention it.

thanks for the input everyone.
actually those k2 virtues seem real nice. I found a lot of good reviews on that (except for one, girl was saying they are extremely ugly )
No pressure points in the ankle strap? Rome Madison's or K2 Virtue's?



but as of Flows, i personally hate them haha, so id be a hypocrite by getting my sis one.

Rome Madison are about as good as it gets for girls IMO

I have never ridden Rome Madisons, but they get overall glowing reviews. The only problem I've heard of is that the toe strap sometimes tears early on.

I love my Virtues - no pressure points at all. They are a binding built for comfort. I think they are a bit stiffer than the Madisons.

Can't go wrong with either, in my opinion.

You can still find last year's bindings on sale - the Virtues are a bit odd-looking this year, but last year's are more simple.

Lilfoot - I need to pick up some new bindings but i'm waay to skeptical at this point after buying so much gear to end up with the wrong shit again. I read all the reviews and it's wicked hard to make the right choice. The demo shop on the mountain pretty much only has the burton lexa for demo. Right now i've got Burton missions (mens). I've like them so far, but with the switch to the lighter board, they are feeling to heavy.

What have you, or anyone else heard about the Burton Lexa bindings?

Call Wave Rave. They might let you demo first and the cash you spend goes toward payment if you decide to buy.

Sweet! Thanks. Will do. I'm over buying shit I don't know anything about, trying it and it fails and I'm out the $$. Not smart. Going forward been doing more investigation before buying.
