    I own wide version of Jones Explorer in size 164cm (wide) 31cm/26.6cm/31cm and I’m wondering if G3 Aplinist skins will match it? The point is that G3 is 140mm – seems like not enough. Can you suggest any wider e.g. 160mm skins or 140mm should do the trick?

    I have a Carbon Solution 162W (30.3 / 26.3 / 30.2) and the G3 Alpinist skins (technically the white label version for Backcountry.com) fit fine. I’d be surprised if you had an issue with the skin width.

    That said, I’d just go with permnation’s link – hard to beat that price and Jones skins are made by Pomoca anyway.

    Just repeating what I was told by someone else but I heard the Pomoca mix and mohair skins are awesome but their 100% nylon aren’t very good. I was looking at the ones on STP but was talked out of them. You can get 145 simple skins on climbingskinsdirect.com for $107 shipped. I’ve been really happy with their skins.


    Go that way really fast. If something gets in your way, turn.

    I love the CSD skins, strong glue, strong traction, no need for tail clips, work in very cold temps. Roll them separately without putting glue to glue. Store them on plastic sheets between tours.
