Mike's Bio

I've skied my whole life (Alpine, Tele, and Board). I find myself canoeing and kayaking the waters of Michigan often, and nothing beats a stay in the backcountry.

The summer kit is not closed cell foam, so would probably not be the best for water sports. However I wear this helmet for skiing and it rules.Overall, if you need a hat that has more bang for your buck, there may be better options out there for you.

The pack itself is nylon, and is not waterproof, but either are the zippers to be perfectly honest. "Waterproof" zippers are very water resistant, but not 100% water-tight. These types of zippers and pockets will help keep gear like your cell phone or wallet from getting soaked in a sudden rain shower. That said, I'd recommend a pack cover for a truly waterproof solution.
