The Alpinist SE Climbing Skins are packed with features from G3 designers that make life on the ascent as simple as possible. Start off by enjoying the easy adhesive separation encouraged by the added Ripstrip. This added section of fabric can be removed if you desire full adhesive coverage and don’t mind pulling a bit harder. Laminated directly into the skin fabric, low-profile tip and tail connecters are less likely to be kicked off as you make your way to the top. G3 designers have spent years dialing in the fabric and adhesive used in their skins to work in any condition—from spring touring to arctic expeditions.

Alpinists for Cheap!

These are exactly the same as the red/white alpinist skins I had before, but half the price! Thanks backcountry.com! GREAT SKINS.

I have moment bibbys and apparently these skins are the only ones that work with the squared off tips of the moments. Is this true or is there anyway to get a cheaper pair of skins and make the other tip attachment work? Thanks for the help.

Responded on

These are the best tips for the movements unless you get just the right size of tip loop.

and jumped on an inexpensive pair of skins. No correct size available, so I went long and wide. 130mm long. Plan to trim them down (I went with long over medium so I could potentially make my own toe attachment if necessary). Did I make an error? I've heard some people say they just cut off the rear buckle, will that work? Is there some way to salvage, or make my own attachment, or should I send back and wait for a better deal?

Here are your options to make the long skins [180-190cm] work on your 155 skis:

- Cut off the tail and go without a tail connection.
- Cut off the tail and get a tail kit.
- Cut off the tip and get some tip loops.

Personally, I like to have both tip and tail connectors for my skins.

Write your question here...Why is the warranty only 60 days

Responded on

I think that is a misprint. The skins should have the same warranty as the other G3 skins: 1 year.

my skis are 154/139/151mm what size should i get and would the 130mm wide ones fit?

Best Answer Responded on

The 130mm will fit just fine! That's a lot of skin and a lot of traction, your skins always need to be a tad narrower than your ski's anyways so you have some edge to work with on any icy/sun-baked slopes..

Responded on

In a perfect world you would get a 140mm, but as wide as your skis/skins are, I would agree with Tyler that you will have PLENTY of grip.

Responded on

In a perfect world you'd get a split skin and trim it to fit every inch of your monster ski. You don't want your skins to be slimmer than your ski - you want them fatter then your ski and you want to trim your skin to fit your ski perfectly with ~1-2mm of room so you can edge on side ice.

what is the difference between this one and the G3 Alpinist 2010 Climbing Skin (no SE)

Best Answer Responded on

Color only. G3 had some excess fabric in gray and gave Backcountry a huge deal!
