Developed by snowboarding legend and mountain expert Bryan Iguchi, the Iguchi Slack Vest is the perfect alternative to a backpack for backcountry shredding. Unlike a bulky backpack, the vest can store all of your necessary backcountry equipment in a discreet and comfortable way as well as providing an extra layer of warmth.
It is a super durable and rugged vest made from nylon and a polyester mesh that hugs close to your body so you can keep your centre of gravity stable when you're hucking cliffs and shredding steep lines. The vest has pockets and holders for your probe and shovel as well as extra pockets that could be used for ski/splitboard skins, walkie talkies or anything else you could possibly need on your day trips.
The low profile nature of this vest is not only great for going deep into the backcountry but also for in bound powder laps. Finding great powder laps is all well and good until you get back to the chairlift and you're forced to either take your backpack off or literally be on the edge of your seat. With this one-of-a-kind Volcom creation you can just jump straight on and off the lift, ensuring you can lay down as many lines as possible before everyone else finds your favourite spot.
This vest even has handy snowboard/ski straps for hiking up. With the weighty skis/snowboards being closer to your centre of mass, you're not going to feel as great a strain on your back on steep ascents.
If you don't like to use a backpack but still need to carry more equipment than your jacket pockets can take, then the Bryan Iguchi Slack Vest is the only alternative you could possibly need.
