The 18 is Ultimate Direction’s middleweight skimo vest, with more storage space than the ultra-minimalist 8, yet slimmer than the bubba 28. It might be called the default option for those used to skimo race packs. Competing feature-for-feature, the Skimo 18 can carry everything you need for basic day tours and most races. It is also “vest-style”, which is the specialty of Ultimate Direction, a leader in trail-running equipment. That means more storage up front for your hydration and energy needs. But it will also carry your skis and stash your crampons from the side. The UD Skimo 18 is lightweight workhorse for daily touring and racing.

  • Surprisingly durable 100D rip-stop nylon is also light and breathable.
  • Multiple ski-carry options with a quick-hook AND a wrap-around included.
  • Side-access crampon pocket also great for extra layers, hydration, or pizza.
  • Crampon pocket is gusseted so the Velcro gets a perfect seal every time.
  • Partner-tow attachment has a storage locker for tucking it away.
  • Front pockets hold hydration flasks, gels, and even a bit more.
