Those here who use Cheat Sheets to store/carry their skins: do you cut them in half and fold the skins, or do you stick one skin on each side of a full length sheet?

I cut them in half. One half length cheat sheet for each skin. I then put half of the skin on one side of the sheet, and half on the other side. Then I've got 2 individual folded skins that I can stuff into jacket pockets or whatnot.
But I guess you could do a single full length with a skin on each side if you really wanted to.
I'm using Dynafit and Pomoca skins mostly now and they came with perfectly good skin protectors that are cut to fit the skins precisely; nice. I use the top ½ + 1 inch--that extra inch allows me to hold the skin at the fold w/o touching the glue with my hands or gloves. These protectors protect the glue and make it easy to unfold skins; I didn't use them in the old days and the glue quickly became a mess.
I use Pomoca skins and I do not like the flimsy plastic backing. It gets all gooey and is a pain to handle in the cold, especially with gloved hands. The cheat Sheets are more substantial and do not get as gooey as the backing. That is why I bought the Cheat Sheets.
I haven't had any problems with my Dynafit (2 full seasons) or Pomocas (1 full spring & summer) yet, but I did have a pair of G3s whose protective sheets started flaking off onto the glue (and not easily removable. I suspect the skin mfrs buy their backing from other suppliers and those suppliers might vary or have variably effective products. I did send G3 an email about the sheets.
