Get to the top, with a little help from the Goat.

Don't let crappy skins interfere with your backcountry stoke. To help you reach the summit with minimal effort and maximum fired-up-ness,, with some help from our radical friends at G3, is offering a Goat-worthy version of G3's Alpinist skin. It features all the same technical features, like self-aligning stainless steel hand tip connectors and a self-camming tail clip that make getting your skins on and keeping them there a quick and easy process. They won't come unstuck from ice-cold bases, either, as they're made with a glue that grips no matter the temperature.

They say beauty is only skin-deep, and as usual, they're right―in this case, even more right than they know, because instead of G3's usual pattern, these fast-gliding nylon skins feature your favorite bearded buddy, previously found only on helmets, water bottles, cars, and computers--that's right, it's the Backcountry Goat! Get in tune with his sure-footed vibes and conquer any skin track in style, knowing that you've got a partner who's evolved to dominate steep and icy terrain.

  • Supple, fast-gliding nylon bases with Goat print
  • Self-aligning stainless steel hand tip connectors
  • Self-camming tail clip with laminated tail strap
  • Sticky, non-toxic and solvent-free glue
  • Rip Strip makes it easy to pull skins apart
  • Skin savers sold separate

Great Skins, not overly grippy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These skins are pretty great. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because they aren't super grippy. I could glide better than my friends with BD skins, but they could climb steeper angles. But the glue is fantastic and the front hooks are great. Definitely recommend them!

Unanswered Question

Work well

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These skins work as well as their G3 brothers. Comes complete with a cutting tool although you do have to buy the G3 skinsavers.
Used them on a week long tour in spring conditions and they never let me slide.

Best skins ever

replaced old BD skins and could not be happier. Don't buy the tool seperately as I did as they come with the skis. Oh well I have two now and will give one of these awesome cutting tools to a friend.

So far so perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are fantastic skins for the price. I've taken 'em on some steeper, firmer (read: icecoast) tracks and they definitely held on. I've been using them with twin tips and I was a littler nervous about the tail clips slipping off and whether to buy some attachments, but I never had a problem. Maybe after a few seasons they could be more prone, but I definitely knocked my tails together a few times while climbing and they stayed secure.

What size skin for a 178cm Dynastar Cham 113/97/133mm?

for Fischer Outbound crown 169 with sidecut 70/60/65 should I go with 140mm short?

Hi, I just got the Icelantic Nomads 14-15 RKR...any input as to which size I should get? Thanks.

Responded on

What length are your skis? I would recommend the 140s for width, being that that is the widest point on your ski. If you go 130 you won't have an edge to edge fit on the whole ski. Figure out your length, check it with the chart in the description, then you should be set!!

As good as anything

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Skins arrived as described with a nice little storage bag, instructions and a trim tool. Sizing these to my skis was easy. On the mountain, the skins gripped firmly. I would order these again.

What skins would be best for my 2013 Black Diamond Zealot 182cm? The dimensions are 135/110/123.

Responded on

I would get the Long 130mm ones. If you want it to cover the whole base of your ski from tip to tail that is. There will be a small uncovered section near the very tip and tail of the skis but other than that should be good.

I ordered the 115 medium for my 178CM skis, (based on the size chart). The width is fine but the skins fall 5.5 inches short of the tail of the ski. Will this hinder my climbing? Should I return and order the long size?

Thank you.

Responded on

No you will be fine. The long would most likely be too long. Plus if you have early rise in the tail, that portion of the skin wouldn't even be on the skin track anyways.

Hey chr105813241,

Since these run a little on the shorter side, I would recommend going with 130mm - Short.

I have the line sick day 110's in a 179 lenght. What size should I order for skins?

Responded on

Hey matthew.p.1800669,

These run a little on the shorter side so you'll want to go with 140mm - Long.

Definitely go for the 130mm/medium for the Automatics in a 172cm length.


Would the G3 twin tip adapter work with these skins?

Awesome climbing skin at a great price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was on the prowl for a lightweight, durable, and easy to use climbing skin that wouldn't break the bank. I think I've found the holy grail. At a minimum of $50 under any competitor, the price can't be beat. I did some research before I made the purchase and these skins are literally identical the G3 Alpinist skin except for the logo. Yes, I'm probably getting bad karma for using G3 skins on Black Diamond skis, but whatever. These were worth it. The glue? phenomenal. The self-camming tail clip? great. It's the little things that make these a great skin. Like the fact it's a stuff sack as opposed to black diamond's zippered skin pouch. It's much easier to use a stuff sack when your fingers are freezing than a zippered case. The self centering tip clips also add a nice touch, you have to do is use the included skin trimming tool to set the length and that's it! No need to guess the length and set the tip loops. I'd strongly recommend in your in the market for a deal. Especially when they're on sale. $100 for some decent skins can't be beat
