The ideal all-purpose, go-anywhere climbing skin built for cold and dry conditions. A mix of mohair for optimal glide and nylon for added durability.

The stiff material of the ALPINIST+ tip creates a rigid platform that keeps snow from creeping under the skin and extends the use of your adhesive.

New tip connector with extended TPU tip and self-aligning stainless-steel hands give a secure, lightweight connection and superior glide while trailbreaking. The updated tail lever and elongated tail strap makes transitions fast and easy.

The refined camming clip stays positioned on the ski, reduces wear and allows for easy adjustments. Removable rip strip reduces skin-to-skin adhesion, making it easier to pull apart skins. If your glue gets contaminated on an epic traverse, you can remove the strip for extra adhesion.

  • Bomber tail connector & updated tail lever

  • Trim tool and skin savers included
  • Premium Plush: Lightweight, fast & durable
  • Non-toxic adhesive

Gear that work!!

Live, work and play on the snow.
As a Professional Outdoor Guide in the Canadian Arctic, I need to know that I can trust my gear. Too often my equipment is what makes the difference between a successful day with guests and a disaster… G3 has solid gear, that as proven itself over the years. Solidly built to last through the abuses of life.

Quality is hard to beat

Purchased the skin, cut the skin using the cutter which was very simple and straightforward. I used the skins on a QST 106 which is a little thicker of a ski. The tip clips were a little too small to fit, so I used a large flathead screwdriver to bend them a little larger and now they fit perfectly. Overall a bomber product that with 3 tours on it looks nearly brand new, definitely reccomend!

G3 skins

I live in Alaska and have snow 8months out of the year. And G3 skins are by far the best designed, very durable, and reliable skins I’ve ever used. Not to mention, the best cutter :). Highly recommend.

Love the glide - especially on long approaches

classic tip hands and a set-and-forget tail clip are great. Glide with this carpet is A-one. Shipping was super-quick too.

Climbing Skins with style

Really like the look and features on the Alpinist+ Glide skins.
The extra tip feature saves on weight and there is less skin to slow you down while still providing the necessary grip where it is needed.

Thanks for your review! Glad to hear you're enjoying your skins.
