G3 Genuine Guide Gear Alpinist Skins Reviews:


These are the fourth set of skins I have purchased and the G3 work the best. They stick well to the skis, get very good grip uphill, provide adequate glide on flats, and don't seem to gunk up in sticky snow like other skins I have owned. I especially like the way the connect at the tip, they fit flush from tip to tail. Other brands have loops that don't always fit well on rounded tips so they allow snow at the tip between the base and the skin.
I skin 40 to 50 days a year in Colorado and G3 hasn't disappointed yet. (No I am not a G3 Rep)

I love these skins. The glue works great unless it's unbelievably cold. The tip hook design is really cool, because it works great with any ski tip shape. The tail clips work really well for me, but I have talked to people that don't like them. They have great grip, I didn't feel like I was sliding backwards at all, even when I was on steep icy climbs. G3 really nailed it with these

I've used these on my Armada JJ's and on the Magic J and they've never let me down. Solid tip and tail clips and some super sticky glue... that's about all you need in some skins!
