Out on the slopes
- May 2, 2017
Not looking for anything fancy, just a sturdy bag for my boots and gear. One would fit men's boots and men's shoulders, one would be for my wife.
I've got the Dakine Boot Locker bag, it's more a duffle style than backpack, I've used it for air trtavel. Boots are on the bottom, and I can usually pack the rest of my outerwear, helmets and layers in the upper compartment.
I have on occasion loosened a backpack strap enough to wear it sling style while I had another backpack on. It kind of sucks, but worked in a pinch. Not really a good solution if that's your need though.The other nice thing about sling-strap style over and under bags is that one can, in a pinch, perfectly sensibly carry 2 boot bags AND 2 pairs of shouldered skis - completely unpossible with any of the backpack style bags.
