Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Effective I bought my first pair 10 seasons ago and used them over and over, re-glued them, re-attached pieces when needed, and they kept on climbing well for me. I finally bought a new set of super wide skis so I needed a new pair. I was reluctant at first as the tip is quite a bit wider on my new skis but with the adjustable tip cable, it was no problem for my new skis. The glue seems fine, no problems, screws all work just fine as well when I assembled the tip. Overall, a great new set up and they climb great in a variety of snow conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the up Easy to trim to size. The tip loop is adjustable and bomber and doesn’t slip off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine skins, require a drill, storage bag is trash 2 of my friends broke screws while trying to set up the toe pieces, making the skins unusable. The included screws are extremely brittle and not strong enough to cut through the skin without breaking. Knowing this in advance, I was able to pre-drill holes through the skins and then put in the screws without breaking them. I'm not sure how you would set these up without a drill. The included storage sack will damage your skins. On the 2nd day of use, it began unraveling into tiny fibers, which will permanently stick to the glue and reduce the lifespan of the skins. The skins themselves work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Experiences with These Skins I purchased these skins due to my history with Ascension. I've had 3 pairs of the original Ascension skins and were psyched on them so I figured I'd give these a whip. My last pair of skins blew out completely in the middle of nowhere giving me an experience to forget. Time for something new. First off I read all the reviews on this site, both positive and negative, and had some trepidations ordering them. Sure it's easy to rave about them yet I wanted to know what negative things were going on and what I could anticipate to go awry for me. Installation of the skip tip piece was simple and straight forward. Trimming the skins as well. Perhaps this is because I have a lot of experience fiddling around and modding out gear. Who knows yet now probs here. I did not that 2 of the 6 screws that I "broke off" as suggested with needle nose pliers resulted in a less-than-flush end that was sharp requiring a little filing to clean em up. Again no worries. I also paid close attention to the amount of glue on the skins. Many reviews talked about not enough glue. I didn't see this as a problem. Plenty there. I compared the hair on these skins to my 5 other pairs for consistency, thickness, glide (with my hand) and pull (again with my hand). I did notice immediately that they didn't' seem to grab my hand as much as the older versions. More on this later. Time to rack up and head out. As I started skinning up a nice and steep skin track, the skins worked fine. Temps were in the single digits and the snow was crisp and cold. Peaking out and skiing down, I knew the real test was about to occur. Once I saddled them back on and started climbing out of our NE facing system, the skins climbed well until the track got really steep. Then there was some sliding and they didn't bite quite as well as I had hoped. Perhaps this is in part to technique, yet I think it was more about the hair on them, the cold temps, and the way the snow packed on the skin up. Overall Skins worked well with a little slipping when the going got steep. Glue worked after many skins out never failing. Tip and tail stayed tight. I like em and am stoked to have em.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Skins great storage sack needs work Got a new pair of skins this fall to fit new skis. Like the skins easy to use and perm well. Disapointed with storage sack. Flimsy nylon costruction with stitching that came apart after 6 trips. This is the fifth set of Bd skins I've had with no issues with carry bags. Please consider a different design/supplier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Got the job done but with difficulty Purchased these about a year ago and have used them several times now in the Colorado backcountry. For short trips they work great, no problems. For multi day or long skins (10 + miles) I have had significant problems with snow balling up and adhering to the skin. This has happened on cold fresh power skinning and on warmer packed skin trails. It makes it impossible to skin until you've taken the ski off, scraped the huge snowball off, and then you have to be quick to get them back on and start skinning or the snow will stink from the start. The other problem I've had is the adhesive not sticking. This doesn't seem to affect the function all that much, just that the weight of the ski goes up a lot when there is a bunch of snow and ice under the skin. See attached picture of both problems in action on a recent trip to Friends Hut in CO. Of note, another friend with same black diamond skins had the same problem as me while other friends on different brand skins never once had this prob...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from skin well but a pain in the neck to set up Putting the front loop on and then trimming them was a ton of work. Much more work than G3 skins. Sliding off the plastic guide to enlarge the loops was undoable. Not sure I will buy them again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around skin! Took them out on my new skis and felt very secure going up steep snow! Easy on and off, but sticky enough on the bases that they stay put.
