G3 took its lightweight (LT) backing material and affixed some supple mohair. Turns out lightweight mohair is just up our alley! These are nice skins that use the G3 Alpinist connection system, with reliable metal tip grabbers and a long reaching tail strap. The 100% mohair provides a smooth glide that is great for long approaches, fitness skinning, and lapping powder. The energy savings on the up translates into a better ride on the down, when you have fresher legs. The G3 Alpinist LT Mohair skins are reliable and friendly companions, just like all Canadians.
