I like the verts with the splitboard binding interface a big better. Easier to stack on your pack or in it. I think in the last 4 years I haven't used them at all. Though there are at least a couple of days that I wish I brought 'em. It's a specialty tool that you probably won't use much. Unless you're in frequently in Alaska.
Yea of the 3-4 skins I did last year(get my setup like a month before leaving) there was only one where it was a major struggle but I would have killed for a pair.
So the normal ones are just like putting your splitboard binding on your board pucks right, so you can go right from your board to the Verts with taking your boot out of your bindings?
