GlideLite Mix Custom STS Climbing Skins is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skins have really progressed over the years I owned 3 pairs of G3 Skins that are 5-7 years old. To be honest I didn't have any complaints. However, I didn't know what I was missing. I purchased 2 pairs of these STS Customs. Wow they're much lighter! For the grip I don't see much of a difference, however the glide is smoother on the BD. I use skins nearly everyday for work in the winter and for me it's weight and room in my bag as the #1 priority. To be able to cut to your length and I also trimmed tip & tail "looks like a thong" lol it's just added weight that doesn't touch the snow. It's nice to have this option and so you get different skis that are shorter you can remove the tip piece and trim again! Great addition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close to perfect I 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best climbing skins I've ever owned I've owned about 5 different pair of climbing skins, including the Black Diamond nylon skins, and the Glidelite mohair mix skins are far better. They glide much better on the flats and grip much better on the steep stuff. And the glue has just the right amount of stickiness- they stick without being too gooey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I bought them for back country skiing in Alaska towards the end of the season to replace a old pair and used them on at least ten different trips. work great, had good stick even after getting snow on glue on multiple trips. I was impressed how step of an angle I could climb with no slip

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick easy to fit Have used theses skins in various conditions and can use them on a second set of skis with a quick tail adjustment- they’re excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great affordable climbing skins I love how easy to use they are and how well they climb even on hard pack when skimoing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Skins Yet Had two backcountry outings with my new skins. They were were easy to trim (my first attempt and it went well...just followed the directions), stick well and climb very well on steep slopes, and seem like they will be durable. A good choice and not too heavy. I've previously had very lightweight skins, and heavier ones...these have the performance I desire and don't add much weight to my pack.
