Get to the top with a little help from the goat.
Don't let crappy skins interfere with your backcountry stoke. To help you reach the summit with minimal effort and maximum fired-up-ness, Backcountry.com is offering a exclusive print version of G3's Alpinist skin. It features self-aligning stainless steel tip connectors and a self-camming tail clip to make getting your skins on and keeping them there a quick process. They're made with a glue that grips no matter the temperature, so you won't have to worry about sliding down the skintrack during freezing-cold dawn patrols.
They say beauty is only skin deep, and as usual, they're right—in this case, even more right than they know, because instead of G3's usual pattern, these fast-gliding nylon skins feature your favorite bearded buddy, previously found only on helmets, water bottles, cars, and computers. Get in tune with his sure-footed vibes and conquer any skintrack in style, knowing that you have a partner who's evolved to dominate steep and snowy terrain.

- Q & A
My first pair of skins
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these as my first pair of skins when I was first getting into alpine touring. I had a gearhead help me pick them out for the entry level price, but these skins are awesome. I have been able to compare them to other skins that are more expensive or considered "higher end" but these are my favorite pair. The cutting tool that comes with it is super easy to use effectively. They are thinner and lighter/more pliable than some of the competitors, and the cam locking device is second to none. I would recommend these to anyone who loves to ski up and down mountains.
Do these skins come with skin savers and a case?
How long are the different sizes? How many cm is a medium length skin?
Medium = 168-184cm. They have adjustable tail straps.
