    Solid skins that won't break the bank.

    Whether you're new to backcountry touring or just want a set of skins that are solid and simple, the G3 Expedition Climbing Skins will please you with their simple and effective design that gets the job done without too many unnecessary bells and whistles. Their large tip loop attachment offers a solid connection that won't slip and slide on you, while their rock-solid tail clip makes for a bomber connection between skin and ski. Like most of G3's skins, the Expeditions are made with a plush synthetic material that glides efficiently and bites when you need it to. A new feature for this season is the RipStrip, which runs down the middle of the adhesive side of the skin, making it easier to pull the skins apart during transitions.

    Light and Durable

      I have used these skins on several tours now. They are light weight. They stick to the base well even after several transitions while storm skiing. The skins glide smoothly on the flats and provide great traction on the climbs. Set up was a breeze. G3 provides skin trimmer to cut the skins to appropriate width.

      WORST glue EVER!!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      So I stored the skins in a cool dry place for the summer with a skin saver between them, the same way i have treated my Black Diamond skins for a decade... then I went to use these skins for the first time and the glue was a NASTY mess. Super sticky to the touch. Nasty sticky glue came off on EVERYTHING it touched, hands, pants, jacket, gloves, AND all over my board (which made it so it did not slide! I had to use wax remover and rewax the board!). This exact same thing happened to my girlfriend and my best friend. They both bought their skins new from Backcountry, so they got a warranty (still a pain in the butt), but since I bought mine from eBay (like new!) I attempted to "renew" them with an iron and paper bag. This did nothing, so I spent 4 hours with an iron and brown paper bags removing the G3 glue then applying Black Diamond Gold Label glue ($50). MAJOR pain in the butt, but at least I now have awesome BD glue on my skins.

      What made me finally write a bad review is I just went to use the skin saver/ cheat sheet that came with the skins and they were covered in nasty sticky glue that got all over me. I just spent 30 minutes with an iron and newspaper removing the excess glue from the darned skins savers!

      Worst Skin glue EVER. Whatever you do, don't buy G3 skins! Get the Voile!!!

      Having said all that, the G3 skin trimming tool is pure genius. Props there.

      No complaints here

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These are the only climbing skins I've owned, and I've only used one other variety (some BD skins), so take this review with a grain of salt. However, I have been pleased with the glide they provide and have had no issues with them. The provided tool for trimming them down to size is a little tough to use, but there are many other ways to accomplish trimming. These are hardly the lightest or fastest skins out there, but they have been quite reliable for my use.

      Will these fit a 184 cm ski? I have only ever used alpinist skins never a tip loop

      Hey Rgcblunt,



      These will fit a ski that is 184cm in length. If the ski has a straight tail, and actually measures 184cm you could use the medium. If the ski has rocker in the tip and tail, or measures more than 184cm from tip to tail I would recommend the long length.
