    Climb like the Goat.

    You got a splitboard so you wouldn't have to posthole through powder all the way up to your line, so you might as well get some skins designed specifically to help splitboarders access the goods. With help from the homies at G3, Backcountry.com is proud to offer a splitboard-specific version of G3's Alpinist skin with all the same technical features like self-aligning stainless steel hand tip connectors and a twin tail clip that make getting your skins on,  and keeping them there, a quick and easy process. The Backcountry Alpinist Splitboard Skins won't come unstuck from ice-cold bases, either, as they're made with a glue that grips no matter the temperature.

    Great product & stellar customer service

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Stoked that Backcountry.com makes/offers these. For starters, its nice to pay a lot less for skins, now. But the beauty is these G3's are better than most of other skins out there. The top mounts swivel, which makes these easier to mount. Way less fuss then the Black Diamond or Voile mounts that I've been using for many years and have never really liked. Only been out one on excursion thus far, but put them to the test sidehilling on some ice and they passed with flying colors.

    Also got to really thank the customer service specialist Connor for the follow up call. Had he not gotten in touch, I would have ended up with the wrong pair and probably would not have had these for the trip I was going on the following week. Although, it probably still would have worked out because the shipping was ridiculously fast. It took 2 days to get to California. And the size was perfect. I could get away without even trimming them. Thanks!

    Poor customer service & description

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Product was a big upgrade. Toe and tail grips work great. Unfortunately it does not specifically state if skin savers are either included or not like they do on other skins they are selling. I probably wouldn't have thought twice if the instructions in the package hadn't said they were included. When I contacted Jake A. with Backcountry via chat he gave me some lame excuses that they keep the same instructions from the rebranded G3 skins to save $$. He then copied a link stating that the G3 skins state they are included. Well that's great. They also have other Backcountry skins that specifically state that they aren't included. I asked once again why it's not specifically listed. He replied that he doesn't write the descriptions. I said that maybe he should address this with the appropriate dept. He said they have all gone home and he would send an e-mail but it probably wouldn't do anything. Not really instilling faith in your company Jake.

    Simple to set up!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought these skins as gift for a friend. Here are his thoughts...

    These skins are great! They're super easy to cut with the blade provided by G3. It's also really easy to adjust the tail tips. First time installation was a breeze. The glide is great and the traction is adequate in Alaskas icy conditions.

    unbeatable price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    these are great skins, easy to use, easy to cut with the cutting tool, easy put on, easy take off, even when out in freezing cold weather. second pair and they are lasting great. very durable and overall great product in my opinion. make sure to double check the size you need!

    great for skinnin'

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I had an older version of these skins for an old splitboard, which I believe might have been thicker than these. So far they've been super easy to cut to the shape of my new splitboard and I can't wait to get out and put them to use. Bring on the snow!
