The experienced skinner who's secure in their uphill technique will appreciate the extra glide and weight savings of the Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Mix STS Climbing Skins. The GlideLite Series uses a slightly thinner and more supple fabric than regular Ascension skins, taking up less room in your pack or jacket. The 65% Mohair/35% Nylon plush gives you just a bit more glide for flats or rolling terrain which adds up on a long slog. The bomber Ascension Gold Label adhesive is, well, bomber.
