Hit the backcountry with the North Face Powder Guide Vest. This out-of-bounds vest lets you carry all your essentials without the addition of a secondary backpack. There’s literally a pocket for everything, and room for that never forgotten flask. The vest features a specific probe pocket, Recco reflector sewn in, internal goggles and stash pocket, shovel and shovel handle pocket with inset pads so you don’t have to worry about the shovel digging into your back; and an additional nine zip pockets distributed throughout the vest. If you snowboard you’ll be happy to know this vest lets you carry your board vertical or horizontal, and your skis diagonally. The Powder Vest is crafted from a water resistant bombproof ballistic nylon built to withstand those nasty branches and sharp rocks. North Face has even backed this vest up with a lifetime guarantee. The nylon may be durable and strong, but it won’t hamper your style as the side mesh paneling is highly breathable and flexible enough to let you move in the right places.
