Who needs a Ski Trekker?
Men and dads. The Ski Trekker was designed specifically for men to achieve a hands-free scenario when extra hands may be needed on the journey from the parking lot to the lodge.
What’s so special about the Ski Trekker?
It’s designed for “recreational” skiers to carry all of their gear, including skis. Unlike “A-Frame” or “diagonal” backcountry packs which can be time consuming and cumbersome, the Ski Trekker was developed to get skiers to the lodge as quickly and easily as possible.
Is the Ski Trekker a ski boot bag or a ski bag?
The Ski Trekker is a high-quality ski boot bag which includes the option to carry skis.
Is the Ski Trekker a “carry-on” or “luggage” bag for airline travel?
The Ski Trekker likely will not meet any airline carry-on requirements. The Ski Trekker has been checked as luggage by certain airlines. KULKEA cannot, however, confirm whether the Ski Trekker will meet the requirements of any particular airline for checkable luggage as these specifications vary by airline as well as internationally.
The Shoulder Straps and Waist Belt are detachable?
The shoulder straps and waist belt are connected by strong hook and loop material. This allows these straps to be detached and repositioned higher or lower for a better fit.
Is the Ski Trekker a technical pack?
No. Although the Ski Trekker has been tested at Tuckerman Ravine, NH to rave review, it was developed for “recreational” skiers. As a result, the Ski Trekker uses a quick loading internal ski carrying system for stabilization rather than relying upon external straps found on “A-Frame” or “diagonal” technical packs.
Is the Ski Trekker for children?
No. The product is sized to be carried by adults.
Stabilizing the skis involves placing the skis within the pack, lifting the pack, and wrapping the Ski Stability Strap around the skis above the top of the toe bindings while the ski tails rest on the bottom of the Ski Sleeve. The toe bindings are used to stabilize skis, except in rare ski-binding configurations permitting safer and more secure stabilization using the heel bindings.
The Ski Sleeve may be adjusted to avoid banging legs or other objects by using the three straps on the Ski Sleeve. Typically the bottom height of the Ski Sleeve should be adjusted to align just above the back of the knee. The top of the stabilized bindings must never be beneath the top of the Central Compartment.
Unzip Bottom Flap. Open Top and engage one end of the Ski Stability Strap. Insert locked together skis tails first into the Central Compartment until contact with the ground. While holding the skis grab the Rear Comfort Grip and lift up the pack.
Secure Loaded Skis.
Wrap the Ski Stability Strap around the skis at the top of the bindings to be secured. Engage the other end of the Ski Stability Strap. Securely tighten the Ski Stability Strap.
While holding the Rear Comfort Grip disengage one end of the ski strap. Carefully lower the pack and grab hold of the skis.
Snow Cover & Top.
The Snow Cover is stored within the Top. It is held in place using hook and loop material along its center. How to use the Snow Cover - Unzip the Top while skis are secured within the pack. Carefully, remove both ends of the Snow Cover from within the Top without detaching the Snow Cover from its hook and loop center attachment. Wrap the Snow Cover around both the Top and skis. Attach the the ends of the Snow Cover together. Attach the tabs on the Snow Cover to the back of the pack.
Avoid placing or dragging the bottom of the Ski Sleeve on rough surfaces. Ventilate the pack if it becomes wet. The pack may be rinsed with fresh water and mild soap detergents. Do not put in dryer or use hand dryers on the pack. The Ski Sleeve includes a zippered access for cleaning.
The pack is used for carrying heavy or elongated alpine ski gear. Skiing, ski gear and winter conditions are inherently dangerous, and caution must be taken at all times when using this product. Be careful to avoid banging the Ski Sleeve on steps, rocks or other objects, especially during descents. Never use this product improperly, inside, too close to property or other people, or with configurations that do not provide for secure and safe stabilization of skis and gear at all times. This pack is designed for use by adults.
