Thule 2018

The Thule Upslope collection of ski and snowboard backpacks is all-new for 2018, now with an additional size (25L) and the option to be used with or without the Mammut Removable Airbag System 3.0 (25L & 35L sizes only). Designed for easy access, versatile carrying methods for your skis or snowboard, and dedicated snow safety tool storage, the Thule Upslope is ready for any adventure in the backcountry. The new collection of Thule Upslope packs will be available in August, 2018.

With easy access your most used gear while the pack stays on your back, there’s no need to slow down when using the Thule Upslope. Its versatile helmet-carry options, dedicated mountain tool storage and a series of adjustable daisy chain loops allow you to reach equipment quickly, so that the only reason you’ll need to stop is to take in the view.

From base to summit and back again, you can rely on Thule’s expertly designed details to ease the journey. Carry your skis or snowboard using an adjustable loop that fits a wide range of ski and board widths. Oversized pockets wrap around and hug the body for an incredibly comfortable and stable ride. An insulated hydration sleeve helps prevent your hose from freezing and a compression system keeps your gear close to your body for the downhill.

Anchored in safety, the Thule Upslope collection comes complete with dedicated snow safety tool storage. The 25L and 35L backpacks are also airbag ready and can be used with or without the Mammut Removable Airbag System 3.0 for complete flexibility. (Mammut Removable Airbag System 3.0 and canister sold separately)
