UNCOMPROMISED PERFORMANCE AT UNRIVALED WEIGHT
Building on the strength of the classic ALPINIST, the MINIMIST UNIVERSAL is the lightest, most packable fully-featured nylon skin in the world with unparalleled versatility, durability, and usability.
The MINIMIST skins achieve an ultralight feel by using high performance textiles from other demanding sports applications as a backbone. This results in climbing skins that exceed the highest expectations for features and performance. Every MINIMIST skin is up to 30% lighter than anything else in its performance class.
The MINIMIST skins pack small enough to fit into your jacket pocket. The low-bulk materials matched with the minimalist tip and tail system create a tightly packed roll that doesn't require any extra room in your pack.
New for the 2022/2023 season, G3 has improved the MINIMIST tails. Sizing holes have been added to improve user experience and now has similar functionality to the tried and true ALPINIST+ tail strap. This eliminates slippage thanks to the mechanical design while maintaining the ultra lightweight design and materials.

I just did a short tour on my new G3 skins and they were noticeably lighter and compact for travel. Will need a few more tours to form a useful opinion. But one thing of note is that when I placed my order, it asked for width of skis and I responded 100, and they are 100 but I think that is kind of misleading because they are a tad narrow at the shovels and tails though I'm sure they will be okay. I just like to trim for most base coverage
Point #2, I love my Pivot poles in so many way but today the latch that adjusts length broke, which had never happened to an adjustable pole before. Can you tell me what I need to do to get it repaired or replaced?
MINIMIST UNIVERSAL Climbing Skins
I was not a fan of the plastic tip on the G3 skins I had before, so opted for this minimalist version and they are awesome
Relatively Light, good traction,
I rather old tail clip design
