    Hi all

    Advice needed, I recently purchased some skins from Climbing Skins Direct, based in Jackson WY (USA), as I have used BDs and G3s and not tots happy with them and have read great things on climbing ability of CSD.

    However, ordered them 30/11 and they say they still havent seen my order, WTF. I leave on a BC trip overseas 14/1 so even if they find it and dispatch them it will be cutting it fine, anyone have any experience with this company?

    Cheers
    Brad

    Bought a couple of pairs from them a number of years ago. No problems then. Skins still going, albeit with other people now.

    My experience with service and product was fine - a couple of years ago.
