Default Binding Problems

Ok so yesturday whent out and brought all the boarding equpiment, everything works excelently apart from 1 maybe 2 things.
This morning got some lovely knee deep snow. Made a path and whent for a spin, sounds lovely right? Wrong....

The boots are Flow and are great there warm and work well with the board. Now the board thats awesome it turns nicely and has a lovely flow to it. Now comes the problem the bindings....
They are hell to strap in.....
I have to take my gloves off (they got cold...) and shove and pull and sweat (alot) to get in, then its easy. But it really ruins my day.
My gloves a slightly to big and floppy D: But how do i get the binding in without a lot of yanking tugging and sweat. My shoe size is 10 and my binding's are small/medium. I would love it if you guys could tell me how i could possibly get then in with more ease to make my day better.
Thank you for reading,

-WolfSnow

should've brought your boots in with you when you got your bindings to test fit. seems like you need a large.

Default binding problems

Not sure what kind of bindings your using I have Burtons. If your using ratchet and strap bindings first thing to do is make sure they are they are adjusted properly,you should be able to insert the toothed end of the strap into the ratchet with ease getting 2 to 3 clicks before tightening them. If you wear a 10 med bindings should work. Also a couple other things I do to get in easier are, I put my ankle strap behind the high back so its out of the way, then hold the cap strap aside step onto the binding toe first with my heal up and touching the high back. Then forcing heal down into heal cup of binding , you can engage the ankle strap then the toe strap. I tighten the ankle a bit then the toe , back an forth till I get a good fit. If everything is adjusted right you should be able to do this with gloves on .

It barely reaches but when it finally gets in, its perfect and just like a normal binding.

Default binding problems

you may need larger bindings. The fact that they are new shouldn't be a problem . You might get used to them but it realy sounds like they are to small

Maybe, but i whent and tried it in the garage with gloves and no gloves, it gets easier so maybe i'm not doing them right, i tend to do the toe strap then the ankle strap....

try doing it in reverse order and see if that makes a difference

I usually do the ankle strap first because it pushes your boot back against the hi-back of the binding
