Solid splitboard skins
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had these about a year now and used them in all kinds of conditions ranging from neck-deep Japanese powder to icy new Zealand glaciers to Aussie spring snow and I'm most happy with them. I haven't tried the g3's which allegedly 'glide' better but don't grip quite as well. Get on an icy traverse and tell me you prefer glide over grip!
I haven't bothered with wax or cheat sheets and I haven't had a problem getting them apart in temps as low as -15c (use your thighs!). I've heard g3 have come out with a new grippier skin, which I might try, but for now I'm happy with these.
I've had tail clips from the start (sparkrandd), I'm not confident enough to "macgyver" them and I've never had any problem with the skins coming un-glued.
This photo is drying my skins on an overnight camping trip in the Aussie backcountry, Mt Feathertop.
