    I need this pack because carrying everything in my pockets weighs me down. Also, after a while of having your dogs ruin your gear because they destroyed your old pack to get to it, gets kind of old.

    This year I’m planning some hard back country tears through BC, wyoming and SLC… and I’m almost all geared up, but living on the east coast (NB) it’s pricey to get to the big mountains… I’ve been lookin this pack and wanting it, but flights come first, winning one would just start this season off perfectly and have me all set up for my treks, along with my K2 jibpan and K2 “the sweater” bindings!!l

    I really need this backpack because it will make me look cool. And will be able to hold lots of life helping things for me undoubtedly getting lost in the backcountry. My girlfriend needs me to get this so I can carry more of her crap when we go anywhere. But at least I would look cool doing it!

    I would love to have this bag because I’m still new to snowboarding and I’m using a regular pack that slides all around on my back when I’m riding… Not so much fun. I’m starting my second year of riding and starting to explore the Blacks and steep stuff, and I’m going to start hiking up to the really awesome runs at some point this winter. Oh, and I love my K2 gear!

    Ok so I will need this Back back for three seperate types of reasons:

    Funny Reason: Im a ginger and I really need to keep sticks with me on kick a ginger day as protection 😀

    Reason two: Headin Out on a trip to BC (I live in Flat Manitoba lol) and I could really used a backpack with actual style to haul around my stuff on the slopes!

    Serious reason: I always need to bring backbacks with me when boarding with my brother to keep his meds and low snacks (diabetic)

    I need that bag… let me tell you I am tired of my things being jostled around lost forever in the bottom abyss of a hole riddled bag. It is a sad day in deed! This would be the answer to saving me from myself! And it would match my new board to boot!

  24. Thiago Rosa

    I need this back pack so I can keep all of my gear together and make it easier to make adjustments to my setup while im up on the mountain. It would also make it a lot easier getting my board to and from place to place.

    I really need this bacpack because im from scotland. In its self that is a valid reason. BUT the weather is so unpredictable in the winter one minute you can be snowboarding in minus 20 and the next its 10 degrees and roasting with no snow what so ever. Crazy weather means I need agreat,large bag to carry plenty of things to accomodate our crazy climate that we call scottish weather!

    My name is Ben and I’ve been boarding for quite some time. I’m super passionate about the sport and try to spread it any way I can. I spent the summer building my very own snow machine and backyard ramps for a mini terrain park. I ride a K2 Anagram and absolutely love it, this pack would make an excellent addition to my gear setup and allow me to bring more out with me and spend more time on the slopes.

    I’m doing a transfer from parkbased shredding to powder (still going to take some days on my K2 Jibpan, which is amazing and you should still make it btw.!) but really need a BP to have all my stuff in when i get out there!

    Keep up the good work, greets from Norway!

    Hey ya’ll i’m gonna keep this short and simple. I love snowboarding, I started about… 5years ago? I’ve loved it ever since but everytime i go I loose something. Legit, it’s crazy then I have to keep going out to buy something new and blow my money. I aint got that money to throw around for a fancy backpack like the one shown. If i win this, it won’t be wasted like most people. I’m not gonna just use it for snowboarding!! other sports too, anything. It’s perfect for what I do, photography too. Keeping my things in that bag of yours, my life will be that much easier. Isn’t snowboarding about enjoying your time to the fullest without worrying about what will go wrong?! Thanks to the people of this competition. Good luck ya’ll 😀

    Why do I need this backpack? Well. There was once a young lad who started working for a indoor snow slope. He was already a skier but the snowboarding got to him. He learnt and purchased his first board. The wonderful K2 Zeppelin. If Jebus rode, he would ride a Zeppelin. The board helped him progress his riding, pass a instructor course and teach other the skills of sliding down a snow covered hill on a board. The board even took him away to Morzine for his first winter away. The K2 Zeppelin treated him well. Now this lad still snowboards. But he also enjoys the mountains when the snow melts… on his bike. I need the backpack to travel with come rain, sun or snow. While strapped onto a board or clipped into the pedals. I need the hydration. I need the space for all the burst innertubes and spares. I need the pack to take the magic Zeppelin into the unknown. The Zeppelin treated me well, I know this pack will too. Here’s to many happy summers and winters in the mountains with this glorious pack.
