Default Pants inside of bindings, or over the back?

Even with my age and experience, I don't know the answer here so I thought I'd post this idiotic question.

I'm perplexed...A friend of mine swears he has less issues with binding strap slippage/loosening when he straps in and pulls the back of his pants over top of the back of the binding so there is no pant fabric between boot and binding. His claim is that it provides a tighter fit with the boot when you minimize the fabric of pants sandwiched between the boot and binding, and thus makes it easier to keep things tight without having to do lots of readjusting, especially on the front font that stays put all day.

Being a dynamic and aggressive rider, I always have to adjust both feet after steep/fast or technical runs requiring lots of flexion and extension since my size puts alot of stresses on the equipment.

I have always just stepped into the binding with the pants bottom in between the binding back and never thought this could have something to do with all the tightening adjustments I make after runs.

Does anyone consciously think that pulling down the pant leg overtop of the binding back helps things stay tighter?

Can't test this out until snow hits the PNW this winter but I never knew there might be a real benefit...Always thought it was a fashion thing.

I put my pant legs over my bindings. I think it looks better. I have really ugly looking bindings.

I put the pant on the outside, especially on the front foot which comes out less often.

I usually take the second to do the same to the back leg, I'm one of those ocd types who likes everything just right, most of the time.

No, your friend is mentally unstable. You should turn and run every time you see him.

I'm a pants over top person. Used to have cuffs inside binding too but thats a pair I had that were too big for me... sounds contradictory I know.

Depends on pants you have. Mine feel stuck in binding and tug down when i ride if they're tucked in

i just strap in and roll. The runs on the ice coast aren't longer than a minute or two anyway, so unless I'm doing tons of laps, it's not a big deal

I wear my pants over the highback, its just what i prefer. I've seen people completely strap their pants into their binding (between strap and boot). Do whatever you like.

I'm over the highback and on top of the straps. Im with your friend, not having that extra frabic between my boot and the highback and my boot and ankle strap makes me feel like i'm getting more response. I'm not getting more response, but I pretend I am.

I put my pants on the outside. I feel like they tug and restrict my movement too much when they're on the inside
