GlideLite Mix Custom STS Climbing Skins is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I bought them for back country skiing in Alaska towards the end of the season to replace a old pair and used them on at least ten different trips. work great, had good stick even after getting snow on glue on multiple trips. I was impressed how step of an angle I could climb with no slip

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best climbing skins I've ever owned I've owned about 5 different pair of climbing skins, including the Black Diamond nylon skins, and the Glidelite mohair mix skins are far better. They glide much better on the flats and grip much better on the steep stuff. And the glue has just the right amount of stickiness- they stick without being too gooey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing skins I love these skins. Gives you good gliding, more than my older ones and great adherence on the snow climbing up. The glue is good and toughs up the season. The attach system is simple and adapts to all skis. A great product for weight, glide and grip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick easy to fit Have used theses skins in various conditions and can use them on a second set of skis with a quick tail adjustment- they’re excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close to perfect I just got out on these for the first time over the weekend and I loved everything except for tip attachment. I had hard time getting the very tip of the skin to stick to my ski because the plastic bit on the tip is so bulky and scooped the snow. It's a small complaint but it seems to collect more and more snow throughout the day. I think the problem could be solved with a very low profile tip attachment system that is still durable. Otherwise, the skins are epic and making the transition from 100% nylon to mohair/nylon has been amazing. The glue is also perfect so far. I tested them in conditions between 20-50 degrees F.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from supple, light and thin Have yet to use these since winter is still coming but first impressions are good. I also had a friend who used these last winter and he definitely liked them and convinced me that they would climb as well as the regular synthetic skins (at least for the tracks we put in) while being way superior in glide. Maybe I will finally give up waxing for the long flats but I doubt it.
