I got a pair of these last season. I had the great fortune of taking them to BC for a week of mind blowing deep conditions. I toured all day every day with these guys and they never failed to grip the snow or my skis. They are really nice and light weight and fold down to a slim profile. The only 2 points that could be improved upon with these skins are the tail clip- I felt like over time or in severe cold temps I would rip the rubber. I decided to retro fit mine with BD's STS tail clip. The second was the glue- Super sticky, yes. Maybe a bit too sticky as I had to struggle to rip them from my skis. Overall I felt these skins gripped the snow better than my previous BD ascension skins and the glue did hold really well in wet conditions(just a little too well)
I bought a pair of the Magic Carpet skins last season and I like them better than my BD ascensions because they pack smaller. The BD ascensions are much stiffer than the Magic Carpets and don't pack down as small. When I first got the BCA skins they were really sticky but the glue has since broken in. I would rather have to much stick than not enough, especially in the cold. They climb and glide really well and the hardware seems to fit on any shaped ski, including my square tipped Moments.
It is just magic carpet. Hike up the snow was more than twice the snow hard ten were crust, who have supported me firmly. Can be used without worry mounting the storage as well and I liked the most.
As a previous reviewer said, the glue is almost too sticky. Of course, if it's extremely cold, that will be a blessing. They grip even crappy snow well, and trimming and installing hardware was easy.
