Gregory Targhee Backcountry Ski & Alpine Packs series includes packs of 26, 32, and 45 liters with all the features needed for snow activities. Read more below.
This Gregory Mountain Products Targhee series has been around for a number of years already and it has been modified several times already. As far as I know, the packs which you have below in the list are the third version which they launched for the new winter season.
As you realize from their sizes, the two smaller are daypacks and the largest is an overnight winter pack. So the Targhee 26 is for short tours, lift-accessed terrains, and similar situations. The Targhee 32 is an award-winning pack for all-day activities.
Ski and alpine packs are designed for snow activities and this implies certain features that you need. This includes the following important features:
- The back panel is with a snow-shedding design, built smooth so that it doesn’t keep snow. The same holds for the hip belt padding.
- The zippered access is behind the back panel, and this is what makes these packs different from standard hiking packs where such openings are on the front. The reason is that you need the front to carry skis or the snowboard, and you need unobstructed access to the interior.
- The packs are built to carry skis and a snowboard. This is why the front and the attachment straps are very strong and abrasion-resistant materials. In these packs here you have exceptionally strong 1000D Cordura.
- A strong frame that is supposed to support the inner load and the skis/snowboard attached to the pack.
- Usually, these packs have a dedicated avalanche safety pocket where you keep stuff for such a purpose.
- Because this is about cold-weather activity, the hose goes through an insulated sleeve on the shoulder strap.
- A safety whistle is normally included.
- Attachment elements for ice axes.
- Helmet attachment features.
But you have much more in these great packs. Please see all the features in this short video:
