Tests and Reviews
What Confessions of a Ski Bum thinks:
"I would describe the Oazo as “solid, light & dependable” – for me this is the ultimate combination for backcountry gear and Plum nailed it in this design. Bindings tend to be less personal than something like a boot or ski and the Oazo will end up being a great choice for most backcountry skiers. If you set your DIN somewhere around 8 and want a light weight binding that can you can depend on, the Oazo is a sure winner." Read the full review here
