I'm Looking at getting some new bindings, and at the moment Now Pilots seems like the best bindings for what i am looking for. But there is an exception, im not a huge fan of the straps, and was wondering if a strap swap is possible, and if it is, which brands i could swap them with and how figure it out, so it would be possible to do myself in the future?

Right now i have and eye on the Arbor Hemlock straps and the Burton straps, would they fit the bindings?

I have tried to do my research with google, but i can't seem to find anything useful unfurtunatley

Looks good!
Did you have to do any modifications to the tooth straps or was it just unscrewing and swapping?

I have Now Pilots, and I like everything about them except the toe strap which slips off my boots constantly. I ordered the toe caps from the Recon, and I think that'll work a lot better.

Burtons work. Size down on strap size... I’m in medium NOWs with small Burton Hammock straps. The NOW heel cup sits higher, so the straps don’t need to be as long. I’m at the top of the size range for a medium too (10-10.5).

Swap them and mount them upside down. They work much better. I ultimately swapped both my Pilot and Drove toe straps for Burton as well... NOW straps are garbage. Had a lot of issues with ratchets going floppy, stitching coming undone, etc.

I just swapped them, no mod. Those are Malavita straps but I 'm going to put Cartels or my Genesis X on it. I only have med straps and they work. If your buying new then maybe smalls like Kimchijajonshim said

I rode medium Hammockstraps for a couple seasons. They work, but a buddy who also swapped out his NOW straps noticed that Burtons are naturally shorter than the stock NOW straps. He lent me a setup and going a size down is vastly superior. I still have a few sets of medium hammock straps and may just sell the lot of them or swap them for smalls.
