Ultimate Direction packed everything you need for ski touring and mountaineering into the Skimo 28 vest. It is one of the most full-featured packs out there, with access from the top, bottom, side and back. Avalanche gear has a special compartment with probe sleeve that you access from the bottom. A crampon side-door lets you stash ‘pons or anything else. Back-access lets you cushion your back with clothing layers or skins which you might want close to you for warmth. The top-corner zip opens to the biggest area for everything else. Oh, and don’t forget all the storage in front you, since this is an Ultimate Direction vest after all. Hydration, fuel, camera, clinometer, you name it, all within reach. The Skimo 28 is a marvel of athlete design, and you’ll likely see some on the Grand Traverse and the Grand Teton.
