G3 Expedition Skins

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

Spark R&D Sabertooth

Light, easy to install, good grip on ice. Nice crampon, but the pin sucks. Duct tape would have worked just as good. I sent a message to Spark R&D about the problem. They said they have fixed the problem and they would send me a new set. The new set had the same pin, no changes, except they were black not red. Full review

Spark R&D Blaze

Awesome binding. No compromise, as good as a normal snowboard binding. These things are like night and day coming from the Voile Universal Sliders.  They put you right down on the deck where you should be. They ride like a snowboard binding, are super light and are a responsive comfortable binding.   The ratchets are Burton ratchets and are great quality.   I have had no issues with the bindings icing up or packing with snow in touring mode. Adjustable highbacks allow a huge amount of adjustment,… Full review

K2 Panoramic Splitboard Kit

Board is awesome, Voile universal interface leaves a little to be desired. I love this thing, it's my first split. I have put about a dozen days on it so far and it's holding up great. The full rockered tip and tail are a blessing in deep powder, and the board actually performs pretty well on hardpack as well.  The only condition I have noticed it being less than ideal in is heavy wet snow. The flexy tip and tail have a hard time pushing around the heavy stuff without excessive flex, making it… Full review

Black Diamond Ascension STS Climbing Skins

Reliable, dependable, and well constructed skins that climb exceptionally well. I highly recommend them to anyone who backcountry skis. Black Diamond Ascension STS skins are a staple up here in Northern New Hampshire. The tip and tail attachments are universal and will fit securely to any type of ski. Over the years I have used my set I have never worried about the skins detaching from the skis. The glue holds up well against the variable conditions I see which includes not only different snow conditions… Full review

Prior AMF Splitboard

This is a great splitboard for powder and nothing but powder. It has a great system for going back and forth between board and skis but it is just so heavy. Trying to do tricks off cliffs with this board is very hard because it's so heavy, same thing with tight trees or gnarly narrow chutes, but if it's an open powder field this board can rip. I have had this board for 3 years now and it has rarely disappointed me. The only time I did not like it is when you need to get small quick turns in. I really… Full review

G3 Alpinist High Traction Splitboard Climbing Skins

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

K2 CoomBack/GotBack Skins

Decent for interior snow but not so great for coastal skiing. I live in the Pacific Northwest and have tried these in the Rockies as well. They worked fairly well in the dry Rockies but accumulate a lot of snow between the skin and the ski and don't glide well in coastal conditions. The fastening system works well and even with half the glue covered in snow they still climb well. The con of the fastening system is that when removing them while still wearing the skis the tip clip comes out easily… Full review

Venture Snowboards Storm Split

I'm riding the 166 Storm, and it has far surpassed my expectations for a splitboard- The interface is tight, and the progressive camber makes staying on top of deep snow a snap. There's lots of pop in it for a bigger board, no noodley action shifting from one edge to the other. The arrow-pointed, flared nose cuts through crust while keeping the tip above an untimely snag. I put in an average of fifty backcountry days a year, and refuse to run a quiver of splitboards; They are expensive and very… Full review
