Default Help choosing bindings

Hey all I'm new to buying equipment. I have always just rented but now I'm trying to buy a board. I'm an all mountain rider and I usually stick to groomers and ice on the east coast here in NC but I do make it out to West Virginia and Colorado from time to time so I need something for a little of everything. I'm looking to get a Capita NAS board and 32 lashed boots but I'm not sure what to do for bindings. I'm leaning towards the burton cartels or missions mostly cause I like the idea of the baseplates being able to flex but I've also heard a few bad reviews of burton bindings in general and for some reason I have a few qualms about getting board, boots and bindings all from different companies so if anyone could clear some of my questions up and give me a suggestion or 2 it would be great

Well Capita doesn't make bindings or boots and 32 doesn't make bindings or boards, so whatever brand of bindings you get, you can't match it to either one of those. The closest you could get is Union bindings which are owned by the same company that owns Capita. But really it shouldn't matter at all. As far as I know, the Cartels should be a great pair of all-mountain bindings for you. I've never used them myself, but I've heard a lot of good about them and not much bad. Personally I ride Raiden bindings. They have mini mounting plates with the intended effect of letting the bindings flex more with the board as well. They're Nitro's binding line which is a great company and I absolutely love them. I've recommend the Phantom's for you.

Thanks rookie haha I'm not sure why I have a problem getting them all from a different company. I guess it really wont matter right? In my mind a company makes things compatible to other things in their own company but I guess it wont make a difference in reality. I'll look into the phantoms. Thanks again

Well there might be some small benefits from buying everything from the same company, but I don't think it would be anything you'll notice. I have all my stuff from different companies, like literally ALL my gear.
