How long did you play with the adjustments? I sell these things and to get them dialed can take me a full 20-25 minutes. To get them perfect has taken me 45min. They are not bolt and go bindings.

TO THE VANS OWNER:
Stick with the XL's. Keep playin with 'em. Set everything to its largest setting and strap it on. You'll notice that to actually hold your toe down when the heelstrap is tight takes very little effort. That's the whole though on Contraband. Keep that in mind when you adjust them. All the thong needs to be is not sloppy. If its pressing a crease into the toe of your boot, its too tight.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

ive got vans boots and contrabands, it takes some fiddling

1. center your boot in your binding and across your board (i.e. adjust the heelcup)
2. put the toe thong to the outermost settings
3. unscrew the thong from the ankle strap (it's the same screw that holds the ratchet)
4. put your boot on, put the boot in the binding, strap up like normal (center the strap) then back off a couple clicks, and pull the thong into the ankle strap until it is snug and the holes are lined up
5. take the boot out, take it off, and screw the thong back into the proper hole (when you strap up on the hill, the ankle strap will pull the toe thong tight)
6. boot back in the binding, adjust the toe thong lengthwise (snug, not tight)
7. don't worry too much about the width adjustment
8. don't worry too much if shit is crooked
9. if the thong strap doesn't go any farther into the ankle strap and you need it to, just mount it on top of the ankle strap material

after the bindings have seen some use, the straps should relax and you may have to tighten them up a bit

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

GOD IS DONUT

That's the reason my contrabands were pissing me off all last season. Ride's tutorial mentions nothing about how tight the toe should be and I was going way to tight. It wasn't until I saw the new model iwht the velcro strap connecting the toe to the main strap that I got the idea about how tight it should be.
