These used to be the only option for splitboard skins and I haven't tried the G3s. When you slap these things together for descent be cautious going glue on glue at first. If you have time put the skin savers on, 'cause these suckers are sticky! I had to get a buddy help me pull them apart the first time. Now that they have some miles on on them they aren't bad at all, which is good cause putting skin savers on all the time is a pain. Maybe now that splitting is becoming more popular we'll see more brands and Voile will bring their price down.
