So it doesn't take long to browse the forums or check out some videos on NS before you see the depressing phrase "tore my ACL, out for the season, need surgery".
I came across Knee Bindings (http://www.kneebinding.com), and while they are designed for ACL injuries and seem extremely helpful in preventing ACL injuries, it seems that the consensus amongst freeskiers is that they should not be used for park/aggressive skiing due to undesirable release issues. However I am wondering if these opinions are justified with personal experience, videos, etc. The population who use Knee Bindings and ski aggressively is certainly extremely small, which obviously might be highly correlated to the distrust amongst park skiers, but I am wondering if the distrust is warranted in the first place.
The only video I can find (positively or negatively) depicting knee-bindings is this one where the knee-binding definitely looks solid:
