Expedition Skin

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent traction but a bit less glide than other brands. Tip metal loops need RIVETING to stay attached! Tail clips are fine. My G3 Expedition skins are 10 years old but still work OK even though getting worn down a bit and needing seasonal re-applications of glue. My gripe is that the metal loops (which must be sized for your wide or narrow ski tips) tend to let go when the self-glued skin that doubles back to hold them lets go. I had to rivet my loops in place. Newer style "tip pockets" may be… Full review

Targa

rated 3 of 5 stars Not the binding you want if you are an aggressive telemarker. Was a good binding to learn on, if only because it was hard to ski! This was my first telemark binding, and I used it for about half a season, probably 50 days. It was used at the time I bought it. I was impressed that they held up, given that I had heard a lot of horror stories of these breaking.  First off, let's start with the pros: These are super light, super easy to mount and switch out parts as necessary, and they work.  The… Full review

Onyx

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great binding for BC laps and skiing. More intuitive than Dynafits. Love Dynafits too, but these are tad different. I have the Dynafits and the G3 Onyx. Let me say both setups are great. I love my Dynafits for BC days and touring; however if I'm taking some runs and want to push the ski, I would prefer the G3. G3 is a tad heavier but I love the fact you can switch from skin mode to ski mode without releasing toe piece and vice versa. While capable of switching to skin to ski mode via ninja pole… Full review

Onyx

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very capable and reliable BC ski binding, while not in the lightweight league of the Dynafit low-tech does have the massive advantage of being able to be swapped between skis. After about eight seasons of using the Fritschi Freerides I splashed out on a new ski set up, moving to the G3 Onxy binding mounted on a set of 2011-12 K2 Hardsides, paired with the 2011 Garmont Radiums and have been using them  for one (southern hemisphere) season 2012. I now have two set ups — as above for my… Full review

Alpinist High Traction Splitboard Climbing Skins

rated 4 of 5 stars These are great skins. They stick well to the snow whether it be deep powder or a compact, polished skin track. Love the nose and tail clips and also the glue is great. As I said, these are great skins, probably the best I have ever owned. They fit great on my split board, come with an excellent trimming tool which takes off the right amount off skin. The nose and tail clips work great, although the attachment points of the little hands that hold the clip to the edge do look a little flimsy but… Full review
