I've used 4 pair of these on 7Summits, Manaslu, Mustagh Ata skis. I also use the race version Dynafit skin on my DyNA skis--where I have a small preference for CAMP race skin. In all conditions and especially during transition to spring when conditions are becoming wet and gloppy in places, and still well below freezing in pockets, these skins routinely outperform the competition used by my touring partners (BD, G3, K2, LaSport). They glide more, they grip at least as well, they're lighter, and they don't glop as much. The only person I wouldn't recommend these for is someone who likes absolutely bomber glue above all else, including the ability to keep pace with your friends. Euro glue is effective, lighter, easier to pull from the ski, doesn't attract as much spring crud, and is easy to maintain. After about 30-60-days of use, just pick off the balls of contaminated glue (don't hot scrap it), and apply a thin layer of your favorite skin glue in a tube. I've been using BD Gold, just not as much as are normally on BD skins.
Another maintenance tip--wax your skins (not just the Euro's; all of them). I rarely feel the need within the first 30-days of use, but thereafter, I warm wax all my skins about every 15-days or when I expect demanding conditions. Don't apply as much iron as on the ski...just rub the cold bar against the hair enough to evenly distribute visible wax, and iron with the hair just enough to lay the hair back into place. Corking the wax with the hair will prevent applying too much iron heat, which can degrade your nylon and glue. I use the same wax as I use on my skis, sometimes slightly softer.
