    Save your skins, protect your hide.

    Store your skins on the G3 Skin Savers and make it easier on yourself when you have to pull them apart in the parking lot. Mesh keeps the glued sides from sticking together, therefore preserving vital stickiness. Regluing skins sucks, and buying new ones is even worse, so do yourself a favor and keep your uphill transportation in prime form by carrying the Savers and using them when it's time to pack up at the summit and 'send it.
    • 110mm saver fits 80 to 100mm skins and the 130mm length fits 110 to 130mm skins

    They work...ish

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

    Stiffer than most other skin savers, pointy edges. I ended up burning the edges all the way around so they wouldn't catch on things. But, they do effectively work as skin savers. I will give them that.

    Caution - G3 have changed the product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've had a pair of these in the past and they've been really useful. I ordered another set and the product has changed. It's now a much stiffer material with a larger mesh, that I find much less practical in the backcountry. The larger mesh catches on everything and is more difficult to manage. Writing this as a heads up to others.

    Good to have!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Some people enjoy the look of ripping apart their skins when they stick them together, I think they look silly. These skins savers will save you time and save you from looking like the hulk. They'll even save you money, since your skins will last longer than the hulks out there. Don't be a hulk.

    good for storage

      Read the description carefully before buying. Those savers are good for storage and for drying skins. They are not good for separating skins in the backpack while you are skiing down. I have an old pair of soft G3 savers that I use every day, and that is what I expected to get. What I got is much harder and thicker, and the edge is sharp like barbwire. Unfortunately I don't know where to get soft(er) savers.

      If you don't have them get them

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are awesome for keeping your skins fresh and clean all the time. Especially after long months in storage these are awesome!

      Great for storage!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These skin savers are great for storing your skins between tours and over the summer. They will help your skins last longer than if you simply stick them together. You can also use them while touring if your skins are really sticky and hard to get apart. These are a nice addition to all of your backcountry gear!

      Respect the glue

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      1) A must have for long storage of climbing skins.
      2) These are better than a nameless competitor's which fall apart.
      3)Outside temps and strength of glue can vary greatly, skin savers will correct those awful to pull-apart climbing skins.
      4) Skins cost serious coin. Skin Savers are cheap.

      You need these.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Are you concerned about herniating a disk or spewing out a stream of expletives that would make your grandmother pale when trying to separate your skins? Do you work up more of a sweat trying to rip those sticky suckers apart at the trailhead than you do while slogging up a skin track?

      Just buy these skin savers. Your life will be less miserable. And don't we all want a little less misery in our lives? Great. Skin savers it is.

      Yes, they're comically overpriced for a long, skinny sheet of weird meshy material. Adding extra toppings to your pizza is comically overpriced too, but you end up being so much happier with your pizza. Treat yo'self.

      Saves skins, but not money.

        This will come with one long saver. You will cut it in half. Put half the skin saver on half of one skin, fold the rest of the skin over the saver,then fold, roll, or hang the skin up.

        These make peeling your skins apart very easy. They also help dry the skins in between use and in between seasons. Very handy product. As the other reviews have said, they seem like they could be cheaper. Pretty sure none of us have ever manufacturer skin savers, so we honestly don't know. But, they do seem like they should cost way less.

        Does a good job keeping skins

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Way better for keeping skins sticky than sticking them to themselves and much easier than the plastic factory film that comes with the G3 skins. Only complaint is really that I think G3 should include these with the sale of their skins. I don't think these should cost as much as they do. Seems like a way for G3 to just get more money out of you.

        Keeping my Skins Sticky

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The skin savers are awesome. I would highly recommend getting them. The savers continue to keep my skins sticky season after season. I will not buy another pair of skins with out the skin savers.

        keeps 'em sticky

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I just checked on my skins for the first time this summer after putting putting them away in March, and they're still as sticky as ever after storing them with these. During the season I would hang my skins up in my closet with the Skin Savers on (folded in half over the hanger) and they stayed in great shape for the season. Highly recommended if you want to keep your skins fresh for winters to come!

        Keep your skins in skiing shape!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        These skins are great to store your skins on. They make it super easy to slap them on and (unfortunately) forget about them for the season. You can trim them to match your skin dimensions, but I've chosen to keep mine at full size for ease-of-use.

        I store my skins on these between tours as well as during the off-season. It gives my skins time and air to dry as well as keeps the glue free from dust and other crud.

        They're not the best for using during your tours, as the adhesive can freeze to the skin-saver making for a very unpleasant exxerience. When touring, I just fold my skins up and put them in my jacket (or pack if it's warmer weather).

        Feel free to hit me up!

        Ben, I question the necessity of skin saves to enhance the life of the skin. I can see having them for ease of separation, but to save the glue? Doesn't seem to make sense. If the glue sides of a skin are together, how would the glue deteriorate by pulling them apart? It's the same substance, face to face, and unless the glue gets pulled off the skin, I can't see how the glue deteriorates.

        Makes the setup/tear-down much smoother

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Highly recommend grabbing a set of these, sure they may not be necessary but I swear it makes the setup and tearing down process much smoother. Plus, I'll be using the same pair of skins while my friends are buying new ones next season!

        Makes your life much easier.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        If you splitboard, you need these. For the last few years I've been straining my ass off pulling my skins apart before every trip. With these, they come apart like butttttttttttttter! A MUST BUY item, period.

        Too expensive for what they are

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

        This works nicely to maintain your skins and I am glad I have them. I think the manufacturers should simply include them with their skins. It is ridiculous to charge $15 - $20 for a single strip of plastic mesh.

        It'd be cool if G3 just included them

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Yeah, they work great. But they should not be their own item. I guess unless you need to replace them. But it is a bummer that the G3 skins don't come with them. At least the model I got didn't. As far as I am concerned they are a necessity

        Great product for your skins

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

        They make it super easy to take your skins apart when your out in the Backcountry and all your friends are taking forever to peel apart their skins.

        great addition to skins

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        if you don't have g3 skins, buy these! ripping skins apart sucks. this makes your job easier / you don't feel like you're ravaging your skins' glue every time you pull them apart. get over the fact that you feel like an idiot for paying $15 for a strip of plastic (I looked in vain for a comparable material elsewhere), and buy them. they'll make your life easier.

        My ski's/ skins are 180 cm long what saver should i buy. How long are they

        Do they come as one sheet or as a pair? Do I have to buy two for one pair of skins?

        Hey Ben,

        You only need to buy one Skin Saver since they come as one long sheet and you can cut it in half to have two skin savers. Put the skin saver on half of the skin then fold it and roll it. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

        anyone know a good way to clean these skin savers... mine are getting pretty gooey.



        Chris.

        I need something to put my skins on to...

        I need something to put my skins on to save them, and while in the backcountry the sheets I have now are 140mm like my skins, the issue is I have no room for error when putting them on. I was thinking about getting the BD Cheat Sheets at 170mm instead. What do you guys think?

        Taylor, I have the K2 Backdrop, 142 at the tip. I bought these 140mm width and they are perfect, and even have room for error. If you're skis are 140 only at the tip, these will be fine for application in the backcountry, even with big gloves on.

        Do these skin savers unravel like the skin...

        Do these skin savers unravel like the skin savers that come with Black Diamond skins?
