The Zoid does one thing, and it does it well: it maximises your time on the mountain without bulking up your ride. The Zoid stows 2 litres of water in a minimal pack that’s slim enough to wear over or under your jacket. The Therminator harness features an insulated drink tube that zips away into the shoulder strap, where it’s out of your way and protected from cold weather, and the Snowshed back panel keeps powder from collecting on your pack. Two small pockets store the very basics: snacks, phone and keys. When you’re on the mountain, the last thing want to do is waste time fumbling through a pack looking for the one piece of gear that fell to the bottom—especially when you’re wearing gloves.
