Since we build our Climbing Skins in-house here at G3, we've collected some extra fabric and parts along the way. Rather than throw them in the bin, we decided to save them from the landfill and put them to good use by offering a limited edition run of CRAFT Climbing Skins.

To reduce our waste and be kind to the planet, we're combining these extra materials to create a superb quality skin at a great price point. Perfect for those just getting into touring or anyone looking for a value Climbing Skin.

CRAFT Climbing Skins are made with the same high-quality plush fabric and backing material as our other climbing skins. The only difference is that they are made with different colour patterns, tips, and tails, which may change between batches due to this limited production run.

The GRIP plush provides maximum grip and traction ideal for steep ascents and icy skin tracks. This is a high-traction nylon plush material selected for its durability and versatility.

Because these are limited production runs, the tips, tails, and colours might change between batches, but the performance will stay the same. G3 offers a manufacturing warranty on performance but not for cosmetic appearance.

Easy to trim to fit. Also easy to put on and take off. Perform well so far, typical high quality and performance G3 skins

Haven‘t actually cut them yet, but shipping was fast as usual and the cutting tool included is nicer than others I have used!

G3 Craft Grip

New to Backcountry Skiing. First ever time skinning uphill. Super stable. Skinned uphills incredibly easy. Videos were easy to follow for trimming the new skins to size. Probably look into another set for gliding. Thanks

What a Great deal!

These are the fifth pair of skins I've had in my two decades of touring. The grip is fantastic, even when I foolishly follow a stupid steep skin track. The glide is good, though I wanted grip for my not-so-great climbing technique as I approach my 70th birthday this month. No rip strip, not an issue, I did remove the strip from my other G3 skins and put on these, my choice. Especially for the price you cannot beat this deal, I would have paid more and still be happy. Get 'em while you can.

Good Performance + Dated Graphics = Still a good skin

The skin graphics are a little dated but the function is great. Overall I'm happy
