Bruce T.wrote a review of G3 Alpinist Split Board Skin on March 25, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have always used G3 skins since I started ski touring and split boarding, 6 years now.
I bought these not because I needed to replace my previous split board skin, but because I really liked the tip and tail connector.
The tip and tail connectors are great.
But the glue on these is not holding up at all.
First time I used them snow creeped between the skin and the board - never had that problem with previous G3 skins.
No matter how dry and clean the skin and board are it happens on the very first lap of the day and just get worse.
Now there are areas where the glue is coming off near the tip.
I have a grand total of 8 days on them!
unlike other reviews here these were bought this season and put into immediate use - so storage is not the issue.
They are hung to dry for 12 to 24 hrs every day they are used.
