This is the pack for a person carrying anything that shouldn’t freeze (food or drinks) or shouldn’t get wet (clothing, paperwork, camera equipment, electronics). Has tool and wax compartments.
The Coaches Pack is made from thick 900 Denier polyester with PU backing. Embossed Tarpaulin Dura panels protect and provide durability. The top load main compartment has Dura panels and rivets for breathability. Has a fleece lined sunglass compartment on top and #10 YKK zippers. The large main compartment is fully insulated to protect from heat and cold. Has a padded harness system with adjustable sternum strap, EVA foam back for stability, comfort, and ventilation.
This pack holds a Toko wax box in case you need to hike it a distance.
The Coaches Pack is the ultimate pack for support personnel such as parents and coaches. Another nice thing about this pack is that it is stiff and stands up on its own, so it can be put down and “worked out of”. The bottom is waterproof (as is the whole thing basically except for the zippers).
This is the perfect bag to take with you to the start of an event. It will keep your clothes dry and the extra “wet pocket” gives a place for soggy race clothes and boots that won’t get the rest of your items wet. The contents of this bag will stay dry even if snowing or raining.
The Start Duffel is made from Smooth Tarpaulin that has been fully cold cracked proof for extreme cold weather.
Hidden “wet pocket” at end keeps your wet clothes separate from your day ones. Rain welt at main zipper ensures dryness. Padded shoulder strap and handle. Hidden padded harness system for use as a backpack so you can ski with it on your back to the start if you want.
If you own a pick up truck, this is the ultimate bag for you in all seasons – whatever you keep inside will stay dry.

In West Yellowstone, I stay at the Brandin’ Iron. It’s a low key place with really friendly people. On Thursday afternoon, I was in the lobby getting Thanksgiving type food from the kitchen and a cab driver came in saying that she was bringing a foreigner in who didn’t speak any English so he’d need some help checking in. This pricked my curiosity so I hung around a bit and eventually learned that he was a Brazilian who also spoke Spanish. Spanish has been a hobby of mine, so I asked if I could help.
I learned that he came to the US to see “Yellowstone”. He was really looking forward to seeing Old Faithful, the animals, and camping in the park. Unfortunately this time of year, the park is closed and a person can’t get camping permits. We went over his options and eventually I simply asked him what he was looking to experience. He wanted an “outdoor experience” where he might see some animals, be outside in the forest and mountains, and have an American western outdoor experience. I told him about the SuperTour races that were being held up on the plateau the next morning and offered to bring him up there with me. It’s pretty cool up there as it is forested, has enough snow, includes cool mountain views, and … yes, there’s a SuperTour ski race! He readily agreed and the next morning we headed up. I was afraid that the 10f early morning temperatures were going to put him off, but he was as excited as could be (I set him up with some gloves etc). We hiked to the area of the course where I was going to take photos (needed images for our softgoods catalog) and then we stood there for 4.5 hours taking it in. The entire time he had a huge smile on his face and was very enthusiastic about watching the ski race. He had never seen Nordic skiing before. Since this was a point to point race, we were only able to see the skiers once each. As far as Nordic ski races go, it was not very exciting. Nonetheless, Adriano our new Brazilian friend loved it! Adriano provided us a reminder of how cool our sport really is to those who love the outdoors and fitness.
