If you're nice, they'll send you the UPS return label for free (Done that every time I've returned a product).

There are some other online stores that have similar return policies. It's like checking the expiration date before you buy milk- ALWAYS check the return policy before you buy online!
Dogfunk/backcountry's return policy is even better than that. They encourage you to use the gear. If you use it and don't like it, you can still return for a full refund, no questions asked, even if the goods aren't in new condition.

Really no reason to buy anywhere else.

I trust ordering from Dogfunk, but never had to return anything.

Definitely good to know

Falling into a tree well, deep powder, or caught in an avalanche, sucks even with traditional straps:
It sucks just as much with GNUs rear entry
It sucks a little more with K2 Cinch and newer Flows
Sucks the worse with older Flow locking power strap

I'm guessing you are right about bridging. Some people really like the Flow I-strap. I like the look of the hybrid strap, it is similar to the contra band, 3 points and the strap doesn't piviot and drop down to the board or behind the highback.

My secret decoder ring says:
NX2= N.A.S.T.Y lifting top strap
AT= 1 piece I-Strap
SE= Hybrid with toe strap.

Just when I though I figured it out I see the NX2 RS - I-strap and NX2 GT- Hybrid and older Flows had SE with I-straps . Props to Flow for trying to provide a binding for every rider

absurd is changing it because someone called it absurd, my guess it was your friends anyways. I was doing the same thing with a contraband in the front and cinch in the back. Then I turned by cinch into contraband, talk about absurd.


Cinch Fanboy deciding bindings : Autos, CTS, or NX2-SE , I need 3 pairs, but want only one model.

Comparing all 2013's I would greatly prefer the Flows if stuck in powder. The Flows are the only ones with real ratchets on the upper and lower part. The K2 and Gnu both use normal locking adjusters on the toe that would be difficult to release when stuck.

K2 did locking for a year, I just flip the ladder around and used a ratchet, they've gone back to the ratchet. I'm thinking the flows are a little better too since it uses a lock to prevent tightening, once unlocked, easy to undo versus the cinch which uses friction on the side of the ladder strap witch is harder to remove.
