    There is no question.

    When it comes to climbing skins, there's no room for existential questions that sound a whole lot like "to stick or not to stick"—the role is simple: stay sticky. And while its name may be a dead giveaway, the G3 Alpinist Climbing Skin accomplishes the aforementioned task with flying colors. Additionally, the Alpinist Climbing Skin boasts a newly redesigned, lower-profile (than in previous editions) stainless steel hands that assure a better ski fit and reduced tip-catch.

    However, in keeping with its original design, the Alpinist features plush nylon material that bites into everything from soft powder to nasty, compacted skintracks. G3's classic Alpinist got a facelift this season with a removable Ripstrip on the adhesive side, which reduces skin-to-skin adhesion for easier pull-aparts during transitions, but it can also be removed when you need some extra sticking power if your skin glue starts to ice over, or gets a little dirty drying in the hut. The skins are treated with a hydrophobic coating (that's also PFOA free) to prevent ice build up, and their glue is rated to perform in temperatures down to -22F.

    • A easy-to-trim climbing skin for backcountry touring
    • Low-profile tip attachment offers reduced tip-catch
    • Adjustable camming tail clip ensures easy attachment
    • Removable ripstrip prevents glue contamination
    • Waterproof treatment is PFOA free
    • Ultra Glide treatment won't compromise traction
    • Item #GGG002M

    Solid Skins

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This was my first experience on G3 Alpinist Skins, and have been happy so far. I've put one season with about 30 days in the backcountry on these and haven't had any issues whatsoever. All around grip and glide have been great in a variety of conditions.

    Best skins for the price.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've officially used every single skin available, and the G3 Alpinist Skins are definitely the best value for the price tag. I'll probably stick with these skins from now on. The grip and glide are at a good balance, and the glue doesn't glop like most.

    Impressive traction and slide

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    When coasting over a flat part of a skin track I'm always able to glide and catch up to skinners ahead of me. On steep parts of the track I'm confident where others are bracing on their poles. Tip and tail clips are effective reliable and versatile.
    If you're lazy on a storm/windy day you can get less than perfect glue condition, but that's more user error than gear failure. Treat em well, and they'll treat you well.

    Can you match me up with the correct size for a pair of Bonafied 180's
