Thermal Trekker – The Ultimate Heated Boot Bag.
Sean, a gear guru, Splitboarder and avid outdoorsman at Engearment put Kulkea’s Thermal Trekker heated boot bag to the test. In his review Sean explains why Thermal Trekker is the best heated boot bag. After the rigors of a year in the mountains here are some highlights.
“The Thermal Trekker heated ski boot bag is more than just a boot bag. The design is top notch and it has more useful features than any other boot bag I have seen. Besides having two side pocket to carry (and heat!) your boots, the Trekker has several storage options to keep you organized on the drive, or flight, to the mountains. “
Sean called out Trekker’s premium quality, features and design that can increase performance. “The first thing you will notice is the high build quality. The zippers are smooth and never snag. The handles feel like they could carry a boat. The layout is well engineered. This makes the Thermal Trekker very easy to use and easy to travel with. The main feature is the 3 stage heating unit. This can be powered via 12-volt car charger or wall charger. This feature alone is worth it. Warm boots are not only more comfortable, they perform better. “
The gear guru found the Thermal Trekker’s storage capacity to be “remarkable”, and travel-friendly. Built on Kulkea’s Intuitive Packing System, the backpack has a place for everything, “There is a storable helmet sling that I used often. A sizable main compartment capable of storing jacket, pants, socks, gloves, etc. A fleece lined goggle pocket to keep the lens from getting scratched. Front pocket for food and water. Top pocket for small items like action camera and wallet. Backpack straps that are actually useful and comfortable as well as removable for flight.”
It’s not just for skiers.
Sean is a “snowboarder, well actually a Splitboarder. So the boots I use are definitely on the firm side of snowboard boots. I use the Thirty Two Jones MTB boot usually (Size 11.5). It is one of, if not the most, stiff boots out there. So being able to warm the boot up on the way to my favorite backcountry spot was a major bonus. “
Sean’s final say “The Kulkea Thermal Trekker saw a season of use and did not let me down. From frigid day trips to the Colorado Mountains, to extended trips, the Thermal Trekker performed better than any boot bag I have used before. It’s not just for skiers either. If a well-organized boot bag that has a legit built-in heater is on your wish list, the Thermal Trekker is your boot bag!”
