Kulkea Boot Trekker Best in Class – Gear Institute.
After more than a year of rigorous testing, Gear Institute names Kulkea Boot Trekker “Best in Class.” From its construction and versatility, to portability and design the Boot Trekker was ranked the best ski boot bag of 2017.
Gear Institute’s overall verdict found Boot Trekker “the ski boot bag that makes the task of getting your gear from the car to the lodge simple and easy. It has plenty of room for all the essentials, it features a thoughtful design, and it includes not only the features you expect a boot bag to have, but also many added details that make life a little less stressful. It is well-constructed with high-quality materials that are likely to stand up to years of use.”
As they dove into Boot Trekker’s construction, the team at Gear Institute pointed out superior materials and craftsmanship including “The bag features thick rolled seams with double stitching and heavy-duty zippers on all the pockets.” Further, “The shoulder and waist straps are as thick and as cushioned as most high-end daypacks and the grab handle on top of the bag is solid and rubberized.
On versatility, “the Boot Trekker’s design and construction make it extremely versatile.” From its helmet and gear storage capabilities to travel-friendliness “The Boot Trekker also provides plenty of room for water bottles, lunch, and almost everything else you might need, making it the only bag you have to carry to the lodge. It also functions equally well as a travel ski bag providing enough capacity to hold your ski gear as well as other carry-on essentials.”
Discussing its portability, Gear Institute found Boot Trekker’s “well-designed strap system makes it comfortable and easy to transport even over long distances”. In addition, to get a more customized fit, “there are several adjustments that allow the straps to be positioned to make them comfortable for different sized users.”
Boot Trekker also won over Gear Institute on its extremely rich set of great features. “From big components such as the strategically placed goggle pouch with soft lining and the designated glove pockets to the small details that tend to make a big difference like pack release buckles, ID holder pocket, and even glow in the dark zipper pulls, the Boot Trekker has features that will appeal to nearly every type of skier.”
The guys at Gear Institute found Boot Trekker “From one end to the other, the Boot Trekker was designed to maximize functionality and performance in a boot bag.” With easy to access side boot compartments to help keep the bag organized…glove pockets positioned in the front of the bag to keep them dry, separate from your other gear, and easily accessible.”
