G3 let us borrow a pair of  next season’s (2015/2016) G3 Alpinist LT Skins. We took them up on Jones Pass to test them on some familiar ground.  G3 redesigned everything for the LT – shorter, lighter plush, lighter face fabric, and new, eco-friendly DWR to keep the skins dry and glop-free.  We tested them head to head with the G3 Alpinist, and Black Diamond Ascension (for control group).  We’ll have a more in-depth G3 Alpinist LT Skins review up soon, along with our semi-scientific comparison of G3’s entire lineup of skins – the LT, the Alpinist, and the High Traction.

(G3 provided a set of the Alpinist LT Skins to us to test.  We didn’t pay for them and we sent them back when we were done.  G3 didn’t ask us to say anything specific about them.  All of the opinions are ours.)
