Close to perfectI just got out on these for the first time over the weekend and I loved everything except for tip attachment. I had hard time getting the very tip of the skin to stick to my ski because the plastic bit on the tip is so bulky and scooped the snow. It's a small complaint but it seems to collect more and more snow throughout the day. I think the problem could be solved with a very low profile tip attachment system that is still durable.
Otherwise, the skins are epic and making the transition from 100% nylon to mohair/nylon has been amazing. The glue is also perfect so far. I tested them in conditions between 20-50 degrees F.
