I love 'em. Super easy to apply with the tip strings. Easiest skins I own to remove, also due to the tip strings. Very fine.
In the product description, it reads: 'Secret sauce make the glue stick to your skis yet separate without unnecessary effort.' Yeah, what Skimo Co said. Because, unless coated in snow (it happens) these skins stick to my skis really well. And, they come off easier than any other skins I've ever used. Know how you can't wait for a typical pair of all-nylon skins to get used for about 30-40 days so you can pull them apart (from themselves) and peel them off your skis easier? Not the case here. The glue doesn't feel all that sticky to your fingers, but it sticks to ski bases…
'Lifetime' water repellency isn't quite mastered. They get wet in Spring and Summer skiing when you've used them all winter. Just use skin wax like on any other pair of skins.
Love the way I can just fold 'em up. Unlike stiff skins, these are really flexible and non-obtrusive to stuff inside a coat. Not subtle. It's like cardboard versus paper.
Mohair doesn't grip in the exact same way on various snow types that nylon skins do, so you may slip a bit until you learn where grip is improved versus decreased. That said, I manage plenty of steep skinning in these things!
Also like that I've been able to use these skins on slightly wider skis (71mm waist) than just race skis (64mm waist). No problems there except during icy sidehilling, which is challenging regardless.
I blew up one of the tiny black plastic tips somehow. Maybe an alien spacecraft touched down upon it when I wasn't looking. NBD.
