I have used these skins for the past two years. They have been through the thick and the thin to say the least. They are lightweight, pack well, and increase your stride because they glide. I cant believe how sticky the glue still is. I have only had one day where i dropped them in the snow and I had to use my ski edges to clean them. I usually dont even fold them! I just stuff they inside my back. I have used them through almost every condition imagineable, cold, wet, dry, etc. Great pair of skins and their trim tool is the best, hands down.
Enjoyed the glide on these skins in colder temperatures...I encountered in the Canadian Rockies....
I was happy with these skins until I used them in a sub zero day. Glue? What Glue? The glue may have well been non existent which made things a little frustrating. I've used BD skins in similar weather and did not experience a problem. The one nice thing about the G3 skins is the tail connector. I'm not sold on two small pieces that secure the front of your ski but the tail piece sure is nice.
They had decent glide but the traction was pretty bad on steep slopes a lot of slippage went on. I would not recommend to a friend, just go with the classic alpinist skins
