Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyT from Storing & separating skins now a breeze! I am a novice backcountry cross-country skier who never used skins before. An expert trainer advised me to buy the Black Diamond Cheat Sheets to store and carry my skins. I have now applied them. What a joy. After cutting to size (1/2 the length of the skins) and folding the skins over them, I am able to roll/fold the skins and store. The skins essentially rest on the cheat sheets. They don't stick at all. And there is extra amount of cheat sheets for at least 3 more pairs of skins in future years. My only suggestion to Black Diamond is to include instructions in the packaging for newcomers like me. I had to go to YouTube to find suggestions on how to apply Cheat Sheets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mark from Great product; seems overpriced My old cheat sheets were fraying so the strings peeling off the edges were flying all over the place, making it difficult to store the skins, especially on windy days. I feel like $20 is a little high for a simple sheet of fabric, but the new ones work really well. It's a huge nuisance unsticking skins from themselves, so in the end I guess the convenience is worth the $20.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chap Stickman from Cheaper alternative Mine fell apart and I was able to buy a lifetime supply of this material at JoAnn Fabric store for 8 dollars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skiupskidown from Much better The last few threads pulled out on the old mohair cheat sheets and I bucked up and forked over for these. The plastic coating is thicker and slicker, so the skins pull off nicely and the material looks like it will last longer. I was sick of pulling threads out of the glue. Now if they will jus ditch the fragile mesh on the skin bags . . . Some folks do not like these, but I believe they help the glue last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lisa from indispensable I can't believe I waited this long to get these. Pulling skins apart is no longer an exercise in strength that sometimes ends up with getting snow on the sticky side of the skins - they just come apart with moderate effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MillyBob from Saves you and your skins I bought more of these cheat sheets because I have used them before and love them. No struggling to get the skins apart and keeps the adhesive from picking up trash when finally do come apart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joebloe from Engineered to failure Got a pair with my skins, started falling apart almost immediately. Years ago, these were useful items. Now they're just good for polluting trailheads with loose black threads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luca from Perfect Perfect for the skin of my splitboard. The width is sufficient to cover all the glue, it is very easy to detach and it does not fly away easily with the wind.
