Pair the HIllsound Trail Crampon Pro with their Spikeeper crampon bag to protect your crampons from dirt and debris and your pack from getting ripped.

Mountain Safety Research Revo Snowshoe tails
Revo Snowshoes from MSR are the bomb. Unless you are in the kind of deep fluff we enjoy here in BC’s interior—then, flotation becomes an issue.

Because they are easy on/off, you can chuck them in your pack and be ready for all conditions. If you are looking for the perfect present for a Revo Snowshoe owner, consider the tails. You’ll be thanked profusely.
