The North Face Powder Guide Vest

For serious snowboarders, very few things are quite as rewarding as blitzing down a mountainside on untouched powder. But that comes with a little bit of risk – not the least of which is that you need a way to haul some necessary gear, like water, food, and emergency supplies. But backpacks can be bulky and unwieldy. Opt instead for The North Face’s Powder Guide Vest.

Built from water-resistant, bombproof ballistic nylon, this hardy vest could survive a war zone, so you know it’s tough enough to weather winter wear. But it’s also built with a wealth of zippered compartments and pockets in which you can stash everything you need when tackling backcountry runs – including a goggle pouch, spots for a shovel handle and blade, and even straps to make hauling your board or skis easier. It even has a Recco avalanche rescue reflector, in case you get into trouble.

Purchase: $249
