The Hagan ZR received this mention from Craig Dostie, serving as the Backcountry Magazine "wrench" following the BC Mag Gear Test: "While the Hagan was Spartan on features, the few who tried it had no complaints, even commenting on how easy it was to get into despite no alignment features. Zero complaints ... in the turns department, which surprised users since the lack of mass did not necessarily inspire confidence."

Tips for getting the best performance from Hagan hybrid climbing skins:
Tip 3. If it is quite cold and you have snow crystals on the skins, wipe them across your thigh a time or two to brush off the snow/ice. Because they aren't traditional glue, that quite effectively removes the snow (without sticking to your pants.)
With these tips, you will really enjoy the handling advantages and not needing to store them with plastic foils - ever!
Skintrack recently posted a brief review of the Hagan Ultra 82.
And... "good impressions 🙂"
"It shines in variable conditions, hard pack, crust and wind affected snowpack - basically, any time when conditions get less than ideal."
Very interesting, if somewhat obvious, research showing the disadvantage of overly wide skis.
