Best Ski Boot Bags for Kids and Adults
A Boot Bag to Suit Your Needs:
The boys and I traveled to Telluride this past Thursday. I pulled them out of school so that they could train on Friday for a USSA Slopestyle Event on Saturday. The plan was to hit the road by 4:00pm so I asked the boys to pack up their gear the night before. It was the first time I ever saw them excited to pack thanks to the new Transpack Bags that were delivered to us prior to leaving. Having their own boot bag was like having their own cubby where their precious belongings like their Smith I/O Interchangeable goggles and Armada gloves were in their own control and not subject to abuse from their brothers.
In all of our travels for ski competitions and travel gigs, I have looked longingly at families who seemed to have it all figured out and it always began with the bags. By each child having their own bag it makes life so much simpler.
We were sent five packs to match each of our physiques from our big Papa Bear to our Baby Bear Tucker who was so elated to be able to carry all of his ski gear on his back that we had difficulties separating him from his pack.
What sets the Transpack Bag apart from other boot bags is the Isosceles Storage System. The triangular design distributes the weight on the back for a less cumbersome fit. The bulk from the boots are diverted to the sides and away from the back creating a natural suspension that is ergonomic and comfortable.
When sleepily walking over to the mountain in the early morning, I appreciated the reflective stripe that warded off oncoming cars.
Other design features include the following depending on the pack you choose:
All in all, I am in love with these well priced and durable packs and highly recommend them to anybody who needs more organization in their lives. As for patterns and colors, there is something for everyone from bright solid colors to skulls to flowers to plaid and mountain patterns.
Transpack also offers bags for skaters with a well ventilated zippered pocket.
In closing, I will leave you with this review on REI.COM written by a Ski Patroller:
