Product description
The North Face designed its Men's Powder Guide Vest so ski patrollers and backcountry riders can carry all the essentials without having to shoulder a pack. Its incredibly durable Cordura shell is water-resistant to protect you against wet weather as well as tree branches and rocks. Mesh side panels offer a surprising amount of breathability and the mobility you need to tuck, twist, and torque off those bomber jumps you love to build out there. Polyurethane foam covers your shoulders and back to protect you from water and harsh impacts when you dive off mountains, accidentally of course. And this vest lets you carry your snowboard either horizontally or vertically, and your skis diagonally for a full range of versatility.
The Powder Guide also features more pockets than regular ski packs do. One pocket lets you easily access your probe, and a pocket and holder gives you an excellent way to carry a shovel. There is a stash pocket for your goggles in one of the dual vertical pockets. A zippered game pocket in the back stores an extra layer when the weather falls below your comfort zone. And five more pockets lets you accessorize the rest of your avy gear along with some water and food to keep you in the backcountry for a full day. A Recco avalanche rescue system may help Recco-equipped ski patrols find you.
