Welcome to another installment of Gear Spotlight from FREESKIER. Here, we provide a close-up look at the gear and accessories that everyone should know about. The goal? To point you towards the best brands and products on Earth so you can trust your equipment whole-heartedly and have as much fun in the mountains as possible. Read up on Douchebags’ The Explorer Backpack 2017-2018, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
A brand-new addition to the Douchebags line-up, the Explorer is a pack of the “peaks to streets” variety. With 20 liters of storage and a diagonal ski carry set- up it functions as your go-to resort pack, with plenty of room for extra layers, a bag lunch, snacks, water, keys, phone and wallet, etc.—while also allowing you to toss your skis on your back and huff it up the boot- pack en route to that coveted hike-to terrain. When it’s time to hit the town or, say, the airport, you can remove the waist straps and easily hide many of the other ones via an innovative interior stowage system for a toned-down, styled-up look.
