    Kulkea is sponsoring another bag giveaway, just for us Ski Divas!

    It's their brand new Micro Pack Ski Backpack, a super low profile, lift-friendly, lightweight backpack for skiing, hiking, biking, snowshoeing and other action sports. I review it in this week's blog (go here).

    Kulkea makes great stuff. I have a Powder Trekker Kulkea bag and I love it. It's well made, attractive, and nicely designed for holding all your stuff. So if I were you, I'd get in on this contest.

    Entering is simple. Just go to the Kulkea web site, learn ONE FACT about either the company or this particular bag, and post it in this thread. That’s it. Easy peasy. (One entry per person, please.)

    We’ll take entries here until 5PM (Eastern Time) on October 29, and the winner will be randomly selected later on that day.

    Good luck!

    * Note: Kulkea only ships to the 48 contiguous states (US). Sorry, non-US & Alaskan Divas.

    Kulkea’s Tandem Bag was reviewed on theskidiva.com!

    It was hard to choose a fact and leave, though. Innovative designs all over their website.

    This is a cool feature for hauling everything from the car to the lodge:

    Snaps onto the Boot Trekker bag.

    I really liked the well thought out pockets. A place for all your things and everything in its place. One of my favorite features is the sternum strap with the built in whistle. I LOVE having this safety feature and wish more companies would utilize it.

    My fact about the Micro Pack- It comes in 3 color options: Grey, Black and Cardinal Red; Smoke Blue and Black; Neon Green and Red.

    I like the Smoke Blue and Black :smile:.

    I own the Powder Trekker. I bought it a few years ago because my old Line bootbag was finally toast.

    I love this bootbag. The pockets are arranged well for the kind of use I give a bootbag. I go into the bag multiple times a day and switch things out. As an instructor I have to change out of my work jacket for free runs when not skiing; this bag allows me to stuff my other jacket inside it fast when I make that switch. The pocket placement is just right for getting liners and food and my water bottle in and out when I take breaks. The cloth it's made of appears to be indestructible. The color (teal) stands out in a rack full of bags; I can always find mine in the crowded storage areas. When I bought the bag, I was happy to give my business to a company that takes design so seriously.

    Oh, and when I need to stuff two jackets into it (yes, sometimes I need to do this), plus boots and helmet and everything else, there's the helmet sling. That allows me to put the helmet on the outside so that extra jacket will fit in the large pocket. Bravo, Kulkea!

    I, too, love this pack! As someone who hates the helmet on my head except while skiing. I liked the helmet loops: Strap a helmet to the pack using the side loops.

    I'm another person who likes the security pocket and the lip balm pocket... Both very useful to have
