Boot Trekker Reviewed by The Brave Ski Mom
Colorado native, Kristen Lummis AKA The Brave Ski Mom, recently added the high quality Boot Trekker ski boot backpack to her favorite gear list. Lummis, a 50+ day a year skier, noted that the Boot Trekker, “stands alone in terms of efficiency” and is a premier piece of equipment for parents. She emphasized that, “for the parent who carries EVERYTHING, the Kulkea Boot Trekker can make your journey from car to ski lodge much easier and more organized.”
The Brave Ski Mom was impressed by the Boot Trekker’s novel functionality and extensive feature set. Her review listed a number of the components from Kullkea’s Intuitive Packing System that set it apart from others, “a flip down front pocket has a fuzzy pouch for your goggles, and room for lunch and water. A small front pocket stores little things like lip balm and sunscreen, while individual glove pockets are found on each side. A stowable sling pops out and snaps into place to tote your helmet, and a large central compartment holds everything else!”
This snow sport enthusiast from the Western Slope also identified a number of the critical, but less obvious benefits that Kulkea has designed into the Boot Trekker. In particular, she explained that the Boot Trekker’s alpine boot designed side pockets are not only large for holding ski boots, but that they have been correctly, “positioned to keep the boots from banging you in the spine.” Her kudos extended further to the Boot Trekker’s hiking grade support system when she pointed out that “best of all, as a really nice touch, the back is padded and contoured.”
Most importantly, Lummis acknowledged that the Boot Trekker achieves its goal of improving the ski experience. The review ended with, “load it up and mom or dad can carry all of their stuff, leaving adult hands free for carrying kids’ gear or just walking hand-in-hand to the lodge.”

February 10 in Ski Shows by Steven Comments Off
KULKEA had another great showing at the 2013 Denver SIA show held in the Colorado convention center. The all-in-one ski and boot bag – Ski Trekker continued to turn heads as we walked the floor of the show with the Trekker in tow. Further as the Ski Trekker made its way around the streets of Denver and into Apres gatherings, it was clear that people appreciated the innovative features and functionality that make the Ski Trekker a better way to carry skis and gear.
Attendees were also amazed as we showed off the spacious, organized and feature rich Boot Trekker. The popular ski boot bag’s strategically placed pockets enable easy access to ski gear and accessories. Many head-nods followed by statements such as “smart, really smart” or, “this blows away anything on the market” helped to reinforce the fact that the Boot Trekker is the best ski boot bag available.
We met so many more great people in the industry, even some Ski celebrities like Glen Plake and Gold medal winner Bode Miller. As always, there were many new companies and innovations such as the Apres footwear maker Pakems, really cool ski poles by Sick Stickz and ski pole clips to help avoid the dreaded pole-drop from the chairlift.

KULKEA’s Boot Trekker a “Fave for this Season”
In their online article, Stuff We Like: Boot Bags – No matter your needs, these boot bags deliver, the good folks at SKI Magazine provided another great review for the KULKEA Boot Trekker. In the article introduction, it’s clear that Berne Broudy has lived through some of the same challenges KULKEA ski boot bags help to overcome. ”Hauling your gear to the hill…can be a messy proposition, with gloves falling in the snow, goggles getting left in the car, etc.”
The solution, a great ski boot bag, “Can solve the problem by tucking away your goggles and gloves as well as your ski pass, extra layers, lunch, sunscreen, and anything else you need for a day on the hill.”
In the review KULKEA’s Boot Trekker was identified as one of SKI Mag’s “Faves for this season.”
“If organization is your main priority, Kulkea’s Boot Trekker is your bag. It carries your boots, one on each side with a closable vented panel. But boot carrying is only one of its functions. A large central gear compartment can be packed with bulky fleeces, snacks, helmet cam accessories, water bottles and more. A soft goggle pouch protects your eyewear, while designated single glove pockets help ensure you’re not leaving the resort without one. Dual wide mouth forward pockets hold more gear—use one for each kid you’re keeping track of, ID holders, document pockets, external zipper pockets, and clear zippered pockets—there is a pocket for everything you could possibly need to stash. Carry your load with adjustable padded shoulder straps and a waist belt, all sewn to a supportive back panel.”
In addition to identifying several unique features, we’re happy to read the call of our back friendly feature, “One of our favorite features: a back-saving pack release buckle that lets you disengage one shoulder strap and drop your load without twisting and bending. A deployable helmet sling holds your lid, and you can strap everything else onto a front gear loop.”
