I ordered mine in early Oct and didn't get them till Nov 24. Same story - kept pushing the date back.
I am having problems with one of the toe pieces - doesn't look like a piece was made to spec. Maybe they have found the same problem on a number of bindings and had to stop shipping.
Make sure when you get yours that the lockout lever can be locked when the boot is in the bindng. If you are not locked you will be able to twist out of the binding when in hike mode easily.
