Passports with Purpose – Outfit Your Family with Transpack Ski Gear Backpacks

Did last month’s Ski Week get you excited for the coming ski season? We can’t wait to hit the slopes! But nothing puts a downer on a family ski day faster than misplacing gear or experiencing a miserable commute from the parking lot to the ski lodge. Organize your ski and snowboard gear and enjoy hands-free carrying–from all members of your family–with Transpack backpacks. This holiday season, we’ve partnered with Passports with Purpose to offer four–yes, four–Transpack ski gear backpacks that you can enter to win for your skiing or snowboarding family!

Transpack Ski Gear Backpacks

My skiing family put Transpack backpacks to the test, and I’m pleased to say Transpack passed with flying colors. In fact, these packs are the most comfortable, most practical, and most well-made ski gear boot bags we’ve ever owned. I have a feeling we’ll never own any other ski gear bag again. Transpack offers a wide variety of styles, but all bags have several things in common: all use a backpack strap carry, and most use Transpack’s signature isosceles storage system. What this means: the design is such that everything fits into the bag, from full-sized helmets and outerwear to extra gloves and a sack lunch. Boots fit easily into side pockets that are angled to distribute weight, and all bags are water resistant and incredible sturdy. Read an additional review of Transpack boot bags.

Transpack is donating packs for the entire family, including:
