Bruce A.wrote a review of G3 Alpinist Climbing Skin on December 12, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Third pair of the G3 skins for me, and the latest version that I received on warranty from G3 is much better. Hopefully the glue on these does not liquify and transfer to the ski like the previous go around.
I've always really liked the tip and tail attachments, but the new skins glide so nice, and pack up really small, and are much lighter weight. A skin that has good glide is so important, but often overlooked. With these skins, I can kick and glide a heavy pair of alpine skis and hardly notice I'm not on a light weight touring ski.
