Missions are plastic pieces of crapola.

I own a set of Missions (2008),

straps/cap works fine for me (broke one by standing on it while it was pretty cold, but it was replaced by local shop).

The highback is to much plastic and a bit squeaky....

The Missions will be the first thing I'll replace when I buy some new stuff, so...Dont buy them

None of those are very good bindings. The ratchets on the Missions definitely slip and the bindings just aren't very good quality.

So far I haven't had any bad experiences with burton bindings, but I always buy last years so there much cheaper. I just bought last years Cartel Lo-Backs and so far theve been amazing but I was wondering if anyone else has used them and what was there feedback on them.

I've got Missions too and my only complaint is that sometimes the ratchet slips. I wouldn't pay full price for them, but they aren't a bad binding if you can find 'em on sale.

i have an old pair of missions (6+ years old) and have never had a problem with em. love em. also have customs with only about 15 days on em but i find those to be pretty decent as well. cant say they are "overpriced crap" as both can be found for relatively cheap these days. how is $60 overpriced for a binding?

At full retail price, they are overpriced crap. At $60, they're just crap.
