New G3 Alpinist Red Logo skins perform poorly skining up, and stretch out too quickly. Also, G3's customer service is not going to be of any help. Buyer beware. G3's product has despairingly lowered in quality compared to their old products, and other skins now available. First time out with the G3 I was slipping backwards at 30 or so degrees (could it be the long wide skinless section to make it easier to pull apart?). Also, from tip to tail the skin has stretched so easily that I have no room to tighten the tail - after one time out. If your back country experience will be no greater than skiing bunny slopes this skin might work. For those wanting a high performance skin you will not find it with this G3 product. Truly disappointed

Below are lengthy discussions on the forward lean in ski mode. The forward lean is proper for being aggressive on making your downhill turns. The ski mode is not meant to be used in skinning, walking around or standing in a lift line (what are you doing in a lift line anyway? :-)). Flip the easy switch on the back to walk mode. The T1 has a nice range of flexibility and comfort. With my fatter skis and beefier bindings (Voile Switchback X2) the T2 is not strong enough to perform.
