So far I have been happy with these new skins. I bought them for my Dynafit Manaslu 178cm skis. They fit incredibly well and the tip and tail attachments work well.

I found the grip good and had only minimal slippage (2-3x while on steep sections) skinning 2700' on a packed powder surface.

The glide seemed fine, but the terrain I have used them on so far was almost exclusively climbing and did not have a lot of gliding. They are lighter than my previous skins (BD ascension) and the adhesive worked very well.

One comment- be sure to peel the attached backing in a warm area. I forgot to do this until I got to the trail and the backing ripped and was hard to remove at 20 degrees!

This ski was purchased to do backcountry skiing in Colorado. I recently used it on a hut trip and was pleased. The ski is very light, but functional. It turns well, is responsive and had good float in 12" of powder. I would recommend it.

I recently switched to Dynafit bindings after using Fritsche for 4 years. It takes a bit of practice to clip into the binding toepiece, but once it it is very solid. Skinning was easy in these skis and I think the motion is better than on the Fritsche bindings. I'm still getting used to unclicking the heel piece, but was surprised by how solid the binding is when locked. I am using Garmont Megaride boots and was very secure and comfortable. My skis responded well to turns and overall i really like this lightweight set-up
