The North Face Snomad 26 Backpack

While your average mountain resort offers up plenty of slopes on which one might shred the gnar, they can often get crowded, slushy, and don’t offer much in the way of fresh powder. For the best experience, die-hard snowboarders and skiers know you have to hit less populated regions. That also means carrying all your gear on your back, since there aren’t any lifts. And that’s where The North Face Snomad 26 comes into play.

This 26-liter touring pack was created with backcountry snowboarders and skiers in mind. That means, on top of an excellent water-resistant ballistic nylon construction, this bag’s internal organization and the external gear straps were specifically designed around carrying everything you need to hit the slopes – including your skis or board. It also includes a dedicated tool pocket (so you can make repairs on-the-fly), a goggle pocket with a soft lens-friendly lining, a main compartment with multiple accessibility points, and reinforced high-abrasion areas. The next time you’re going to hike up a hillside to hit some fresh pow pow, make sure you bring along all your gear in this $129 pack.
