Product Description:

The Full Send Custom WhatVest is the larger choice utility ski vest ideal for carrying the essentials and plus some for a day on the mountain. Made to be worn over your winter shell, this utility vest allows you to get on and off the chairlift with ease-- no need to take off a bulky backpack every time you get on the lift. Nine pockets total help distribute your gear evenly including four front outer pockets to store your keys, cell phone, radio, buffs, etc... and two inside front mesh pockets that are ideal for storing snacks, flasks, gloves etc... The low profile back zipper pocket provides space for extra layers, extra goggle lens', backcountry gear (shovel and probe) and is hydration pack compatible. The lower, rear lumbar pocket is accessible while the vest is on with two-way access, providing another great (and warm) storage area for gloves or collapsible H2O pouches among other items. Side mesh panels and a front "air-out" clip help you stay cool when traversing or hiking to and from the goods. This WhatVest is designed to pack your essentials for a day on the hill without the bulk of a backpack. Sizing is based on the shell you would normally purchase, i.e. if you wear a large jacket, buy a large vest. We highly recommend viewing our new Sizing Chart for more details.  Designed and manufactured in Wyoming and made entirely in the U.S.A.
