The Backpack You Need When the Four Horsemen Arrive

Nature is tough. This bag is tougher.

The backcountry is not for the faint of heart.

The snow is deep. The weather can change faster than Clark Kent. The wild animals bear sharp teeth and long claws.

And there is one backpack capable of defending you from all of these threats, and it’s the Burton AK457 33L Backpack.

Its PU polyfiber shell can withstand rain, snow, wind and punctures. It can carry your board, your poles and your skies. Its color is so deeply matte black that we’ve heard it attracts astronomers hunting collapsed stars.

There’s even a special sleeve for a shovel and depth poles. The straps are glove-friendly.

This backpack may indeed save your life, because it’ll keep all of your survival gear safe and accessible.

Santa, if you’re listening, we’ll take one.
