You know who you are. Your idea of a good time is a week-long traverse above treeline, and 5,000 vertical feet of climbing is a piece of cake. Your whole setup is as light as you can make it without sacrificing reliability, and a 500 gram tech binding feels like an anchor on your feet. You need the Marker Alpinist 12 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings ASAP. Super light at 245 grams per side without brakes, but with features like three climbing levels, fore-aft adjustability and elastic travel at the heel, and the option to add a brake that simply aren't available with race tech bindings, the Alpinist sets a new bar for sustained backcountry travel.
