The Backcountry Ski Backpack is a low-profile ski backpack designed to carry avalanche gear as well as other gear essentials. This bag is lightweight enough to not interfere with your riding, but rugged enough to withstand the backcountry. The bag has quick-release straps that let you carry a pair of skis diagonally across the back. This frees up your hands for ice axes or using your hands while hiking to your ski line. Inside the bag you'll find that there are specific compartments to house avy gear like beacon, probe, and shovel. This keeps your bag nice and tidy and lets you know where everything is in case of an emergency.
This backpack also features an integrated hydration compartment much like you would find on a high quality hiking backpack. There is a zippered hydration tube cover on the shoulder strap that is insulated and has a pocket to hold a heater pack. This is great for those extra colds days because it will prevent your hydration pouch from freezing up and clogging the line with ice. Another great aspect of this bag is that it is designed with ergonomics and comfort in mind. There are shoulder, sternum, and hip straps that are fully adjustable and help you keep the bag stable when loaded with lots of weight (i.e. when you have your skis strapped on). The hip and shoulder straps both have removable pockets that allow you to keep essentials within reach without having to take off the bag.
