    Does anyone have any advice on picking up second hand ski skins?

    Ideally full length, but also would be interested in kickers.

    If you go ebay and type in French and Italian search terms you can frequently pick up used touring gear way more cheaply.

    They're actually for my friend, I think his skis are 203cm long, think width under his foot would be somewhere between 65 and 75mm.

    203 cm is v long for skis these days= unlikely to find any second hand skins anywhere.
    I have some cheap old 45 mm wide skins that long.
    They have tail hooks and euro style rubbery front tensioners .
    I just checked the glue it is still sticky and would work fine .
    Also some snake skins I could sell 54mm wide ,they strap on good condition.
    depends on type of skiing , if he just wants to potter along and not climb any gnarly steep icey slopes.
