Thumbs down Womens Technine T9 bindings - straps are peeling :(

I've had these bindings for a little over 2 months(Christmas present) and got about 20 days on the snow on them. A week ago I noticed this little spot on the right toe strap where the vinyl-ish material started peeling off I just touched it and the material just started rubbing off. Now all 4 straps are peeling in places. I emailed technine about it, seeing if it was covered under warranty and they wrote back saying it's normal wear and tear and is not covered!!! Seriously, after 2 months?! I mean it doesn't affect how they ride but for brand-new bindings they already look like crap! Now I'm worried when the season is over that they're going to dry rot or something and I'll have to get new ones for next year

Do you warranty a snowboard when it gets a chip?

isnt it tho? you used the bindings for 20 plus days, obviously they are going to wear, just as a board would wear, its expected. your rachets show how much wear you put on the bindings. deal with it or buy new ones with no vinyl layer.

Really? So it's a common thing? My fiance's sister just got the dime bindings for Christmas which are made out of the same material. Hers havent started doing what mine are but she doesnt ride as much as I do.

Sorry but I don't think it's the same at ALL.

You buy a board expecting it to get chipped, scratched, etc... You don't buy bindings expecting the straps to start disintegrating after two months. I don't think 20 days is a lot, besides nothing else on them is showing signs of wear... I don't know why people are getting so defensive about this post lol.

I'll admit for 20 days it does seem like an awful lot of wear, but to be honest every pair of bindings I've ever owned has had similar signs of wear eventually. (Except for the old break-a-toe bindings from the 90's). What's up with the first picture though, that's an odd spot to have that much of a gouge out of the strap? Maybe it's just the angle of the photo...

not being defensive, i have no reason to be as i dont own technine. im just stating that its comon for bindings to wear, doesnt matter how many days you really put on them its how you take care of them. and vinyl coated anything tends to peel off after a decent amount of wear. ill admit the bindings do look horrible for 20 days but again days dont really matter unless your talking about the base of a board. buy leather ones and never worry abiout this again.
