Skier flying down a mountain wearing a Snoblast Hydration Pack.

SnoBlast™ 22 Hydration Pack

Shop Now

We weren’t kidding when we said these gifts were perfect for skiers and snowboaders. The newly redesigned SnoBlast™ winter pack is protected by Snow Shield™ materials to keep essentials dry the entire day on the mountain. There’s plenty of room for lunch and extra layers (20L cargo capacity), with both top and side openings for easy access while on the move, or on the lift.  

The included 2L Crux® reservoir means water breaks can happen anywhere, anytime, without ever slowing down. And best of all, the Therminator™ harness keeps the drinking tube insulated and safely tucked away, so water stays water instead of becoming ice.

What makes the Zoid so lift-friendly? First off, the size. As our smallest snow pack, the Zoid is anything but bulky. So it’s a sleek choice for lift rides from run to run. But there’s more: Zoid includes the Therminator harness and SnowShield materials to protect their pack—and their water—from the elements. A helmet attachment loop for a safer ride. Front zip pocket to keep essentials secure. And a harness designed to easily swing the pack around on the lift. Includes a 2L Crux hydration reservoir so they can sip, shred, and carve all day. 

P.S. Snowshoers, hikers, and fans of fat biking will love this winter pack too!
