Discount women's bindings?
 
I was wondering if anyone has a good website for discount bindings and maybe some suggestions on what to get.
I was looking at gnu's fastec stuff and was really loving it, but not loving the price. I need some comfy, durable bindings that I can shred the park with as well as groomed runs.
I'm an instructor, so durability is a must.
I like technine and rome too, but again, the price!
I just need a good, cheap binding from a discount website (maybe with instructor discounts?)

Last season there was a binding epidemic, so we ran out of almost everything. So I'm not discounting much but my stuff from 2 seasons ago.

You might find something on geartrade.com, I got some practically brand new flux super titans from there for $80.

You probably waited a little too long to get the best deals on good bindings. The best time to buy is early spring. You can get that season's stuff at clearance prices.

That said, I'd check out REI.com and backcountry.com. They still have some of last year's stuff on clearance.

A quick look found burton stilettos for $79.

Yeah, you waited a bit too long.

Here are a few good deals:
Ride VXn Snowboard Bindings - Women's - '09/'10 at REI.com
Burton Lexa Snowboard Bindings - Women's - '09/'10 at REI.com
Ride DVa Snowboard Bindings - Women's at REI.com


I'd stay away from the Stilettos - terrible binding.

These are good bindings, but REI charges you for shipping on those unless you are a member. I don't know how their membership works, but we give you free shipping without any memberships for anything over $99 which those bindings are. The only one that we don't carry is the Ride DVa in that particular year (we have the 2011).

Basically, you will end up paying more at REI because of the shipping.

Sorry Littlefoot, don't mean to impede on your suggestions, but REI is more expensive than other places 90% of the time. Unless you pick it up from their store. Then you don't have to pay shipping. Even then, most of their stuff is still overpriced.

EDIT: just read the rest of your post. I had said she could have them delivered to her local store to avoid shipping. But I just saw you said that.

As far as prices go, their clearance prices are pretty reasonable. They're in line with most other online clearance prices. Plus you get a lifetime return policy. So if her bindings break, she can pick up another pair for free. Even after they're out of warranty. That's probably not the case with most other websites.

Yea, I mentioned that. I'll also point out again that most of their items still end up being more expensive even if you pick it up.

Sorry, not trying to make the company I work for look better. I used to shop at REI when I was a beginner. I have since learned that I overpaid for all my stuff. The worst part is that it isn't even a shop. It's a massive retail chain.
