Comments about G3 Genuine Guide Gear Climbing Skins Trim tool:
This item changed my life. Before this tool cutting skins was a stress invoking voodoo session in the living room that involved 3x peers to give encouragement and backseat guidance. Ultimately the old shift and cut method always resulted in errors.
This tool is nothing like the old letter opener - it is a revolution in trimming technology where the first time is guaranteed to be a perfect cut. Seriously - I can't imagine going back to the old technique after seeing how easy, and high quality the cut is.
Get one... You won't go back.
For reference it should be noted that I do like my edges exposed - some of the Jackson skiers who go straight up the mountain on skins like true wall to wall without edge tolerance. I'm of the mindset that I have edges and like them even when skinning so making sure they are exposed helps on the uptrack and when applying skins (easy setup without overhang).
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
