    Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Mix Custom STS Climbing Skins is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent! I am on my third season with these skins and they are excellent. The BD product description is accurate. They may provide slightly less traction then some of the all synthetic skins I've had but the reduction in weight and packing size more then make up for it for me. Used properly I have had no issues with the adhesive and the provide better glide then the synthetic skins I've used (over 25+ years).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better for touring than steeper BC These skins are relatively easy to trim to your skis, and the attachment methods are not that bad. Beware of having a tip too wide, as the loop only fits a certain width of tip (mine just barely go through it, making the front attachment less than secure, though this was my mistake, not BD's). The glue: sticks well if you can keep it perfectly dry. As soon as you get an ounce of snow on it, that part of the skin won't stick essentially for the rest of the day. I use the mesh backing and am very careful with these, but after a day of doing laps or a longer day trip, they are usually held on by only the mechanical attachments no matter how careful I'm being. The hair: I could see mohair being wonderful for long, less-than-steep tours. However, take these things on a slope >25-30 degrees and they start to slide, a lot. Almost everyone I ski with has nylon skins, and I'm regularly sliding backwards in tracks that they feel totally secure in. This, again, means I'm probably using mohair when I should be using nylon, but please keep this in mind when considering these for backcountry use in steep terrain.
