Our Ride BC ski pack is built for backcountry skiers and snowboarders. Besides being lightweight and tough it improves access to the multitude of gear you carry: skins, goggles, probe, shovel, helmet, and whachugot.
To a backcountry rider, skier or boarder, Ride does what few other packs do. Carry all your crap AND give easy access to any of it with the tug of a zipper. It helps you organize all your stuff, and allows incredible access to what's inside from nearly any angle - top, left, right, upper or lower corners - thanks to an ingenious use of quad-sliders zipping on the tracks of a super tough #10 YKK zipper that loops from the bottom of one side to the top and back down to the other corner pocket. The side panels fold down to provide two mesh pockets, four total, for stashing smaller items - skins, spare gloves, repair kit. When one side is open it provides incredibly open access to whatever is inside, even with skis lashed to the side or a board strapped to the back. On top are two zippered access pockets, a short one for goggles and a deeper one with a divider panel.
Compression straps hold skis solidly on the side, plus there are dedicated Hypalon reinforced straps on the front to hold a snowboard secure without worrying about the edges cutting the fabric. For the mountaineering minded, there are four ice-axe loops, two small and two oversized to slip skis through for lashing 'em diagonally. Of course it's hydration compatible, as all Red Fox packs are. There are two exit ports, allowing the tube to run on whichever side you prefer, left or right. In addition, there's a channel in the foam shoulder straps so your body heat and the foam padding keeps your water from freezing.
It all rides comfortably on your back thanks to molded padding on a contoured frame sheet that hugs your back but twists so you can knock out turns without the pack restricting you.
