These are quality straps. I got them to put in my backcountry ski pack and they have come in handy so many times. If your tail strap on your skins breaks, just slap this on around the skin and the ski and you are good to go. I got the 15 inch and they were just wide enough for my skis, about 140 mm in the shovel. If you have fatter skis go with at least a 15 inch or longer.
