As far as the skin adherence, it seem to work well. I put them on my head, rubbed around on the floor. tried all sort of stuff. They really didn't pick up anything. No way they wouldn't stick if you dropped them in the snow.

My thoughts are that you would probably want to mod out the skins with a spark or sts/g3 tail kit, and probably mod out the tip attachment too. Which for an expensive set of skins is kind of ridiculous. I was going to try to get a set from them to review, or just pro form through FOBP. Since last season was so bad out here I never got motivated enough to pursue it. Durability was their big problem out of the gates and it seems to have been taken care of. Overall they were good guys and were very receptive to constructive criticism about their product.
Any news here? (Geckos were recommended by my goto shop)

I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little
