Discover what the mountains have to offer with the help of the ARVA Explorer 18 Backpack. This rugged, yet lightweight pack is as versatile as it is affordable, proving you don't need to spend a fortune to be prepared when you venture into the great outdoors.
It has a holder that can accommodate either snowboards or skis (no discrimination here), and you can remove the holder when you want to shave weight and bulk for off-season treks. Dedicated avalanche safety tool slots keep rescue gear organized in case you ever need to use it, and it also sports a hydration sleeve to keep you from getting thirsty on sweltering summer runs. No matter what time of year it is, count on the Explorer 18 to have your back when you're in the mountains.

Backcountry Touring Backpack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this for my wife to use for her first season touring. There are adequate pockets inside for her avalanche set plus snacks, and space to store her jacket and layers. The backpack is adjustable enough so that it isn't too long on her torso.
