When you’re heading into the backcountry – whether you are ski touring, splitboarding or snowshoeing – your backpack plays a huge part in your day. It holds your food and water. It’s home to your avalanche equipment, extra layers, maybe even a tent and sleeping bag. A good backpack can make your whole experience a lot easier.
“Patagonia is one of those brands which inspires dedication.”
Today Patagonia is a multi-million pound business and one of the biggest innovators of outdoor gear on the planet. Environmentalists love Patagonia for their ethical, eco-friendly values – from campaigning to save surf spots and rivers to using environmentally-friendly fabrics.
The SnowDrifter Backpack is a great backpack for anyone heading into the backcountry during the winter. At 30 litres, it’s large enough to hold everything you need for a day (and a night) in the mountains.
It has two easily accessible openings – a big U-shaped zipper on top, plus a back panel allowing access to your gear while the pack is still fully loaded. It has a compartment especially made for avalanche equipment, including slots for your shovel, probe, snow saw, plus an hydration sleeve.
