Osprey Packs Kresta 30L Backpack - Women's
As most women know, backpacks are often the unfortunate victim of the pink-and-shrink laser beam. However, designers over at Osprey heard the call for a functional, women-specific touring backpack, and answered with the Kresta 30 Backpack. And in typical Osprey fashion, the Kresta has just the right amount of features necessary for a day of touring in the alpine without skimping on the overall fit or functionality.
More specifically, this pack is fashioned with a women-specific Light Wire suspension system that when combined with the padded help belt and stabilization straps, provide a comfortable and pressure-free haul. The thermoformed, contoured back panel sheds snow easily, and ultimately reduces the build-up of frozen precipitation on your backside. Not to mention, a deployable helmet net makes carrying your helmet a breeze, and the tuck-away ice tool loop ensures you're able to haul technical tools without worrying about losing them en route.
In keeping with its versatile construction, the Kresta boasts a horizontal snowboarding carrying feature, or if you're of the dual-planked nature, it also touts an A-frame or diagonal ski carrying design. Though, perhaps most importantly, the Kresta has a J-shaped avalanche gear compartment, complete with dry pocket, so you're not only able to access your safety gear in a flash, but you're also able to separate your sensitive avy gear from wet skins or damp clothing. A back panel entry system enables you quick access to snacks or extra layers, and all of the Kresta's zipper pulls, as well as buckles, are glove and mitten friendly.
Deuter Rise SL 32+8L Backpack - Women's

This pack keeps your touring gear organized with a front pocket for quick and uncluttered access to your avalanche safety gear. On your way to the summit, durable front straps securely hold your board or skis. Access your extra layers and snacks through the back panel, so digging for a bite to eat or an extra sweater doesn’t turn into unpacking your entire bag. Throughout your tour, the Rise’s Delrin U-frame prevents pain from a heavy pack from overwhelming your adventure. A channel between the back panel offers chimney-like ventilation so you don’t overheat during sunny spring tours.
Mammut Nirvana Ride S 20L Backpack - Women's
Take the panic out of waking up before the crack of dawn by packing the Mammut Women's Nirvana Ride S Backpack the night before you go skiing. This backcountry-specific pack carries skis or a snowboard, and it hauls a helmet, goggles, hydration reservoir, and your essential avalanche safety gear. The Nirvana carries skis diagonally or at an A-frame, snowboards vertically or horizontally, and the helmet carry stows away during the descent. For support, Mammut equipped the Nirvana Ride with a light, stable aluminum frame wrapped in EVA padding for a comfort carry. The waist belt and shoulder straps also feature EVA, and you can remove the waist belt if your dawn patrol will be a quick cruiser.
Salomon MTN Explore Ski Boot - Women's
Designed to remain nimble on the up, comfortable during long approaches, and dependable on the descent, Salomon's Women's MTN Explore Boot is a solid offering any backcountry-roaming lady will appreciate. A performance-oriented 98-millimeter last and 90 flex is ideal for lighter, intermediate to advanced lady rippers, while the generous 63° range of motion in walk mode makes short work of bootpacks and long skintracks.
Salomon built the shell around its Sensifit shell technology, which eliminates needless materials throughout the shell but reinforces it in key areas to maintain a progressive and responsive flex while skiing. When coupled with the lightweight carbon spine, the MTN Explore delivers big on the descent, without sacrificing an ounce of performance on the ascent. The women's-specific liner and cuff is shaped to match narrower legs and calves and is slightly shorter in height to better fit the female leg. And if that wasn't enough, Salomon made the liner heat moldable to ensure a precise and snug fit through the heel, arch, and toe box.
Hey it's brad from back country skiing canada calm today we're here to talk about a new ski from soft 2016 this is the solid mountain explorer 95 ski and. As the name suggests it's 95 millimeters. Under the foot and it's got 130 in the. Shovel so nice and fat for powder and some early rise and 116 in the tail that's for the 177 length ski it weighs. 1,400 grams per ski so twenty-eight hundred grams prepare and that again is the 177 length so it's a really lightweight ski ideal for ski touring it comes in a few different sizes 169 177. 184 centimeter lengths and the turn radius ranges from sixteen point five meters to eighteen point eight meters now the mountain explorer 95 is a full. Sandwich sidewall construction it uses utilizes utility rocker which is basically tip rocker up front underfoot. You've got camber and then the tail it's a relatively flat tail it's a 3d full. Wood core this reduces weight and maintain stability and control and this. Uses the cfx super fibers which is basically 60% carbon and 40% of flax. Laminate and so this increases your dampening it also uses what Solomon. Calls the g-spot technology and this is basically a combination of side cut and rocker profile in places the edge hold directly underfoot so you've got better edge hold on the groomers and also in skinning up hill it's got a built in. Skin clip in the tail here as you can. See and in the tips it's got Solomon's honeycomb. Construction this is the same construction you're gonna find on the qvc lab skis we reviewed last year over. Here and also on the q 98 that reviews. Over here and the q 105 that reviews. Over here as well in this technology basically lightens the tip and tail. Up for improved swing weight and it as well. Gives the ski no chatter virtually no. Chatter on hardpack and groomer conditions and I'd have to say Solomon's one of the few ski manufacturers this really mastered this these skis just have minimal chatter on hardpack wears other skis with this early rise they chatter all over the place and start skating out on you so I'm really a big fan of this honeycomb tip and tail design the other. Think that you need to know is that this also comes in a smaller width it comes in an 88 underfoot so that's the mountain explorer 88 ski and overall I'd say this is a really good lightweight ski for ski touring it's built for ski touring but it doesn't sacrifice anything on the downhill 90 95 underfoot. Is a good length for skiing resort and also out of bounds deeper days you might want to go a little wider but if you're more of a resort skier than the mountain explorer 88 ski would be the one for you this ski retails for $749 canadian and. It's new this year from salomon that's the salomon mountain explorer 95 skis highly recommend it for other things back country skiing blogs forums gear. Reviews competitions routes go to.

K2 Talkback 88 Ski - Women's
As the middle child in K2's women's backcountry-specific ski lineup, the Talkback 88 Ski has the versatility to tackle long alpine missions or quick spring laps with equal zeal.

A Titanal spine and carbon reinforcement is to thank for this ski's impressive power and stability, while the paulownia wood core is responsible for its efficiently light weight on steep ascents.
