Who says more is better? Not BD. The backcountry requires a slender, lower-profile pack that can easily be worn as we glide and turn our way through champagne powder (or, god forbid, wind-hammered, rain-crusted hardpack). Well, the Zippo was specifically designed for this purpose. It’s a simple, streamlined pack with a clamshell design that opens instantly for access to our essentials. The expandable crampon pouch also doubles as a great water bottle pocket. Best of all... it’s affordable!
