Topic - What skis, bindings and boots for ski touring in Finland?

Flatus Vetus - on 13 Dec 2012
I'm going to Finland in March for 10 days. I will be camping for the duration and carrying all of my kit either in a rucksack or I'll be pulling a pulk. I'll be skiing mostly on the flat, often across frozen lakes or through forests. I will often be in areas where there are prepared tracks but I suspect I will be using skis that are too wide for the loipe (prepared tracks).
What skis/boots and bindings would be the best compromise for this trip? I'm thinking about NNN BC boots and bindings but this would mean that I will have to carry a pair of walking boots! Wearing a pair of Lundhags and using cable bindings would allow me to get away with taking only one pair of boots but I have little experience of cable bindings, how safe are they compared to the modern backcountry (Rottafella NNN BC/Saloman SNS) type binding?

Thanks in advance
