The lowbacks I saw were these Burton Lo-Back Snowboard Bindings 2009 | evo outlet
Thanks for your explanation.

Thanks everyone! All the qualities you have listed are things I would want in a pair of bindings too~
JoeR. Thanks so much for answering my big question! Would I be correct to say the the low backs would be better suited for more flexible riding like park riding? Thanks!

Most people (doesn't have to mean you, of course) prefer more flexible bindings for park riding, stiffer bindings for freeriding, and something in the middle for all-mountain riding. The parts of the binding to which the flexible/stiff rating applies the most are the highback and the ankle strap, although the entire chassis can be more or less rigid, I suppose.
Another performance factor is ease of entry, especially if you are riding park or freeriding at a small resort with short runs. Rear-entry bindings (e.g., Flows, some K2's) or single-ratchet bindings (e.g., Ride Contrabands) can reduce the time you spend fussing with bindings after you get off the lift.

1. Ratchets that dont stick and stay in place after some hard riding
2. Straps that conform to boot without pinch points
3. Durability (more so in terms of the ratchets, high back, strap padding etc. Most baseplates are decently durable only break due to mfg defect..hence the lifetime warranties...having said that...always exceptions to the rule. The other crap can break due to poor design and weak materials)

1. Useablility, ease of ratches.
2. Doesn't fall apart
For me, Burton has never let me down. Rome Targa is my new one, kind of rough those ratchet edges, the ratched thing never goes into the holder properly and then jams (Little leather thingy) and the left toe strap keeps falling off. :/
But enough of the hate. The cants and the support is grade a and the board really does flex under the bindings and its a great feeling to ride them.
Ziploc ties go a long way to secure that front toestrap. :P
