To USWE, a backpack isn't just a thing that you carry on your back loaded with equipment and gear. NOPE! A backpack, like a glove, also needs to fit tight and snug so you can perform at your top. The fit should be so good that it feels like you're not wearing it at all. So, when we developed the POW winter backpack, we used our best team of resources when it comes to product design, materials and of course experience in skiing. It turned out to be a supersmooth ski and snowboarding backpack made for the vertical adventures in high speed and adrenaline using the innovative Thermo Cell technology in the harness straps to prevent your hydration and food from freezing while in super cold conditions.
It comes with an integrated and removable lev.1 CE-certified by SAS-TEC full back protector made of flexible viscoelastic foam with memory effect that returns to its original shape after impact or deformation. It’s designed to guard your back if you bail while staying comfortable and snug on your body in high-speed action.
With the No Dancing Monkey™ 2.0 + Snug Me harness you’re going to get the best fitting winter backpack. It’s absolutely bounce free guarantee.
Geared up with several smart storage and organization compartments, Ski and Snowboard carry system, quick access pocket for your avalanche equipment, a helmet carry system, a goggle pocket and 2x side pockets for your favorite essentials in the waist belt. Yes, the POW backpack is perfect for any snow adventure.

With the No Dancing Monkey™ 2.0 harness system you get extra stability with the added belt around the waist when you need to carry heavier equipment in your pack. The stretch in the chest straps expands along with the chest during physical exertion, allowing a constant tight and compliant fit. The shoulder straps are ergonomically designed for comfortable and smooth distribution over the shoulders and the back panel that can easily be adjusted up and down for individual fit and size which makes the pack feel tailored for your body.
Secure. One hand operation.
for reduced pressure on the shoulders and insulation to keep your drink tube from freezing
Ventilated multi-size back panel, easily adjustable to your size to find you the perfect fit. Multisize: M-XXL
Fit it snuggly to your chest and waist for that Bounce Free fit.
Equipped with a multilayer insulation cover that reflects the heat on the inside and shields from the cold and wind from the outside. By its design, the Thermo Cell closes tightly to the body and a thin mesh membrane permits maximum body heat to pass through. Used in this way the body heat feeds the Thermo Cell with thermal energy. Smart!
Thermo Cell encapsulates heat from physical activity in an insulating air pocket that protects the tube and bite valve from freezing even in the most extreme winter conditions. Therefore, we have chosen to provide both shoulder straps on the NORDIC, HAJKER, CARVE and POW backpacks with Thermo Cell so that you get the option of choosing which side you want to have the tube in tube, or having tubes on both sides (double hydration bladders). Or optional, why not store gels and bars that you easily reach on-the-go in the pocket you don't use.
