Don't let crappy skins interfere with your backcountry stoke. To help you reach the summit with minimal effort and maximum fired-up-ness, Backcountry. com, with some help from our radical friends at G3, is offering a Goat-worthy version of G3's Alpinist skin. It features all the same technical features, like self-aligning stainless steel hand tip connectors and a self-camming tail clip that make getting your skins on and keeping them there a quick and easy process. They won't come unstuck from ice-cold bases, either, as they're made with a glue that grips no matter the temperature. They say beauty is only skin-deep, and as usual, they're rightin this case, even more right than they know, because instead of G3's usual pattern, these fast-gliding nylon skins feature your favorite bearded buddy, previously found only on helmets, water bottles, cars, and computers--that's right, it's the Backcountry Goat! Get in tune with his sure-footed vibes and conquer any skin track in style, knowing that you've got a partner who's evolved to dominate steep and icy terrain.
