Thought I should post this due to all the buzz Colin’s Dynafit breakage post created. Great minds have thought of this for years, but the demand wasn’t there. Perhaps now it is. We shall see, as this MFD Alltime setup looks ridiculously heavy and cumbersome for the needs of most backcountry skiers. On the other hand, some backcountry skiers need the performance of full-on alpine bindings, so perhaps this is the solution for them. Also, the MFD Alltime works as a swap plate for one set of alpine bindings. Your thoughts, oh esteemed WildSnowers? Oh, and that music sounds awfully familiar (grin)?
