Climbing Skins for Backcountry Skis

Climbing skins come in various sizes and are typically made of nylon, mohair, or a blend. Nylon is known for its durability while mohair sheds weight and increases glide. Blends aim to get the best of both worlds. Cover your tips and tails if you want the best grip, or go skinny for speed!
