Space-age Dyneema fabric saves precious weight on your pack. A sturdy cable and strap system keeps your board or skis tight. Inside there are 18 liters of space and four pockets to keep things organized, including a big one for your hydration bladder and a small zippered one for your valuables. A dedicated probe pocket ices the "everything you need and nothing you don't" vibe from this first-year bag maker. ($180 [snowboard or ski versions]; function-snow.com)
