Our randonnee binding collection was a big hit at the Outdoor Retailer show. Tore it down today, here is a larger photo that perhaps shows more detail (sorry it’s not better — I messed up the shot) for those of you trying to figure out the bindings for a Couloir Magazine subscription. Post your conclusions on the Couloir Magazine forums (please use existing thread). I’ll post the full list of bindings in a few days.
Several Europeans who liked the collection agreed to help us acquire a number of other important AT backcountry skiing bindings to round it out, including the Iser, Emery Chrono, and a number of others. When done with the next acquisition phase, the collection will probably have about 45 bindings! If anyone has a yellow or green Silvretta 404 they would like to donate, we need to add those to round out the 404s with the different colors they were offered in over the years. More tomorrow (I’ll have more time for blogging)…
