The opinion of Aventure NordiqueThe Berwin bindings are a reference for polar expeditions. Many adventurers have used these bindings to explore the Antarctic and the Arctic. The Berwin use with backcountry skis and boots polar. These bindings allow flexibility to move forward on the ice and on flat areas.
The Berwin bindings are soft plastic. When walking, the heel is raised plastic with the flexibility of the plastic plate located under the feet.
Points to remember: strength - They provide a comfortable walking and fits with most polar boots.
The Berwin do not offer good control downhill: they are made for flat terrain. Over rough terrain when towing a pulka these bindings can be fragile. Not suitable for shoes with rigid soles.

Berwyn bindings have been used for years by many notable expeditions to both poles and throughout polar lands. They are principally used with mukluks, which, by their very nature, are not intended for use when great ski control is required.
Ideally, users should have good experience of skiing before using these bindings. They should be used with care, particularly if travelling over uneven surfaces like pack-ice. Spare heel pieces should be taken in case of breakage – maybe a few within a group. (The heels are left- and right-handed, on account of the way the buckles face.)
Berwyn bindings will fit only up to size 11 UK size Baffin boots.
