I'd go with red, but that is mainly because I just don't like white bindings, don't ask me why...

I stay away from white stuff, just cause it tends to get all scuffed up and dirty looking.
Same as a white car... everything shows up.

I vote red.

My snow pants are green. Although people say, just get the job done, I don't want my stuff to look like they are just completely mixed. Will this be a big deal?

And besides everything showing up on the white, how do you actually like the red on the Proto? Does it suit it well?

Red works.

However, in light of your green pants, and as the bindings already have black all over them, it won't look weird if they get a bunch of black scuff marks.

I change my vote. Go white.

Unless you want to look like a christmas tree in March.

Just go and ride. Forget about colours, sizes, shapes. People won't be critically evaluating you on the mountain

HAHA! Very good point :P I could also get new pants down the road, depending on how mine continue to hold up. I'm just afraid white is too plain and "boar"ing. Red has some kick to it, but if it doesn't work, it wasn't meant to be..

I know, but like I said, I don't want to just mix random stuff. If I have the choice, I'll want to get what I think will be best. I hate regretting things later on.

Buying a functional product based on style is ridiculous, but if you have decided on the model and are just trying to get your color choice down, I don't think there is anything wrong with that.

I'd go with white. It will blend well with the tip and tail of that board.

I'm gonna be throwing my red prophecys on my Proto, but black pants = no clash.
