A little bit of skinning and walking doesn’t scare most backcountry skiers, but dropping a ski from up high can really put a damper on a day. Not every ski partner is willing to tackle a ski like a football player, so it’s best to either hold on really tight or instead install a leash. The Ski Trab Leash is a simple gizmo made of coiled steel coated in rubber to keep durability up and excess cordage down. The small accessory loop can be girth hitched to your boot and the leash itself loops through your binding somewhere to create a clean ski-retention solution. Clip into a Ski Trab Leash and become more carefree. Weighs 23g each. Sold in pairs.
Got these leashes this season and have been thankful to have them when my skis popped off (no bye-bye skis for me). They are super easy to use, they also clip back onto themselves nicely when I choose not to use them (and aren't annoying and floppy). They are a permanent installation on my ski setup. I simply chose these leashes over others because I have Ski Trab bindings.
