Product of the week!
After presenting some pieces of clothing, including Salewa Couna jacket
, Asolo Distance shoes
and terrex™ icefeather jacket by adidas
, we decided to shift our interest a little bit and focus more on pieces of equipment. The most obvious choice to start with seemed to be a backpack. But we did not want to describe another regular model, we wanted to find something that really stands out. And looks like we’ve got it! Ladies and Gentlemen, the one and the only – Salewa Taos
If you are the ones who love sports like free ride or free ski mountaineering and jump for joy every time they see the first snow in the season, Taos is a backpack you’ve been looking for. Not for nothing, it was the winner of the 2012 Ispo award in the category of Action Sports Accessories. Taos has been equipped with a unique contact system and the advanced Ride Fit carrying system with an integrated back protector. It has a large front compartment for avalanche shovel, probe and first aid kit, an inside compartment for valuables, as well as a storage for belts and straps.
To make it as functional as possible, the designers included a padded compartment for ski- or sunglasses, both parallel and diagonal ski fixation, ice pick or ski pole attachment and fastening for helmet net. There is also a whistle, SOS label and a place for a hydration system with a side hose guide. Everything wrapped in one piece made of extremely durable, damages and abrasion resistant fabrics – Nylon Twill and 420D Nylon Ripstop, and sweetened with a hip fin pocket, access to back, TriLine puller and comfortable foam handle. Plus, do you like the design as much as we do?
When it comes to its capacity, Taos Pro model can store 28 liters
and it is available in two color variants: cactus and black. A standard version is also of a 28 liters capacity but you can choose from red and silver option.
There is also a compact
19-liter version and the 17-liter and 26-liter Alpidonna
models for women. The choice is yours!
