Kulkea’s Powder Trekker ski boot bag is “The best one yet.”
After a long quest for the best boot ski bag, The Ski Diva’s (TSD) journey concluded successfully with Kulkea’s Powder Trekker. The feature rich, durable and comfortable bag earned, “two ski poles (way) up” from the avid skier’s discerning eye and appreciation for quality ski gear.
TSD’s review of the Powder Trekker included an illustration of the bag’s ingenious Intuitive Packing System, “engineered to keep you from losing your stuff while keeping it readily accessible. For example, there’s a zippered compartment on top that’s half lined with fleece to protect your goggles, the other half unlined for keeping your gaiters or balaclava. And there’s a wide-mouthed main compartment for your layers, ski pants, and bulky items. “
On storage capacity and accessibility, TSD articulated why the Powder Trekker’s is better than that of Transpack’s. “Unlike other bags that hold your boots in a triangular pattern that encroaches on the inside, Kulkea bags keep your boots at right angles in two side-zipped outer compartments that are easy to get to and don’t squish your other stuff.” Further, “the retractable sling that holds your helmet on the outside…which opens the interior for your other stuff and keeps your helmet well ventilated.”
Providing insight on the superior craftsmanship and weight of The Powder Trekker, “it’s made of durable, water resistant nylon which is much lighter than my previous bag, and it’s extremely well made. All the seams are double reinforced, plus there’s generous amounts of high quality tarpaulin on the bottom, sides, front and back of the pack for water protection and durability.”
Finally, in her review on the comfort of the Powder Trekker, “the straps are padded so they’re comfortable and don’t dig into your shoulders. There’s a quick release buckle that lets you unclip the straps rather than trying to remove the bag by lifting it off.”
The Ski Diva’s verdict: “I’ve been through a number of bags and really, this is the best one yet. It’s well made, easy to pack, easy to haul, and I love all the compartments.”
