Bacons measure about normal for a 182, i.e 182. But they ski kind short, i guess due to the early taper. Also the marked midsole is at -6cm not -2.5 which is what it says on the website.
As for bindings, I like jesters and most people have never had a problem, personally I chose the over sth 14s because I don't trust the quadrax toe, and I like the high elastic travel. That said the sth 14 might be more durable.
