When light and nimble equal more laps, pair down with a women’s specific fit plus the low-profile confidence of snow tool access and vertical plus splitboard carry options.
Hot-lap, open-gate days demand a low-pro pack, and the [ak] Side Country 18L Pack stows the essential kit without taking up an extra seat on the chairlift. A quick-access snow tool pocket allows rapid deployment when digging pits or initiating rescues, while rear-entry access enables quick gear shuffles. Two modes of carry – vertical for solid board and A-frame for splitboard – provide stable options when bootpacking into the line. Biometric wrap shape keeps your balance on point in sketchy situations.
