How many times have you woken up to a snow report of fresh powder, only to be slowed down by an hour-long search for your scattered gear? Get out the door and on the mountain faster by storing your stuff in Mountainsmith’s new Utili-Tote. Two front pockets hold small stuff (goggles, gloves, extra socks); the main compartment fits your boots plus a helmet and water bottle (with a zip pouch for keys and cards). The tote’s rubberized bottom keeps it from slipping or sliding and prevents your snow-caked boots from soaking your car’s upholstery. The Utili-Tote debuts in January 2010 – something to look forward to after the holidays!
The company’s unit tracks vertical drop, speed, pairs with your phone, and attaches seamlessly to any ski goggle.
