Athalon Heated Boot Bag

One of the hardest parts of leaving the mountain is stowing a pair of soggy boots for the airplane. What’s the best option?

Nothing beats warm boots after an early morning arrival to the mountain. The Athalon heated bag draws power from the wall or a 12-volt car socket to keep those dogs warm until first run. The wrap-around heating unit envelopes the central compartment, offering three temperature settings, while the two side compartments stay cool for the rest of your gear. Backpack straps carry it all, and even better—the foam padded back prevents boots from slamming into you as you walk. Only in black. ($170)
