Men’s Journal Reviews the Boot Trekker
The Men’s Journal Gear Lab got their hands on the Kulkea Boot Trekker and gave us an “over-the-top” review. Hugely impressed, Greg Emmanuel, Men’s Journal Editor, said the Boot Trekker is, “the most thoughtfully designed ski boot bag we have ever used, this durable backpack has a solution for stowing everything you need on the mountain.” We at Kulkea could not agree more!
The Boot Trekker improves the ski experience and the Gear Lab got it. Instead of dealing with the “gnarly proposition” of hauling gear to the mountain, the Gear Lab found our ski boot bag “virtually eliminates the stress.”
“Beginning with your boots, two well proportioned side pockets house those cumbersome behemoths easily and have the added feature of Velcro vents that open to air out wet boots after a long day of skiing. The main gear compartment is large enough for plenty of extra layers and a three-course lunch, while a second front pocket is almost as big and includes a soft pouch that allows ski goggles to hang untouched by the rest of your gear.”
In addition to the smart design of the Boot Trekker, Kulkea’s commitment to quality and durability was also praised “the bag is equally impressive when it comes to sturdiness.” In particular, “the Boot Trekker is made of a water resistant nylon and the Tarpaulin-reinforced bottom that mean you can literally throw it in the snow and around the lodge without a second thought. Even the zipper pulls feel indestructible.”
Kulkea, lauded for its high quality and thoughtfully designed ski boot bags, continues to impress customers and even the toughest of reviewers, taking the snow sport industry by storm.

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 Abramowitz 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.
