Bruce A.wrote a review of G3 Alpinist Climbing Skin on May 13, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I own the Alpinist and the Alpinist High Traction. I religiously separate, dry and store my skins. Yesterday about 50% of all the glue transferred to my freshly waxed, scraped, and brushed ski. Skied a very dicey line with skin glue tip to tail - put my life at risk! Got home and tried the other pair of skins, and they did the same thing to a different pair of waxed skis.
Impossible to remove without paint thinner or wax remover. Do not buy these skins.
I have old Ascensions (like 10 years old) that still perform very well. Buy those.
