Ever get a piece of ski gear you really, really liked? One that made your life oh-so-much easier?
I had that exact experience last winter, when I purchased a boot bag I can carry on my back. See, I used to hoist my skis over my right shoulder and steady them with my right arm, while I carried my boots and helmet with my left.
By the time I’d hike from my car to the lodge, my left wrist would feel like it was going to break off (those boots are heavy!).
So I found this great boot bag, with enough room to carry not just my boots, but my helmet, googles, and anything else I needed for a day on the slopes. And since it works like a backpack, my wrist didn’t kill me all winter. To me, that’s a big improvement.
I wish I’d found it sooner, but I guess I’m glad I found it at last. I don’t think a day went by when I wasn’t thrilled to have it.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a better way to carry your stuff, I highly recommend it.
