USWE Introduces POW Series Backcountry Hydration Packs

USWE, a leader in packs for action sports, today announces the launch of its new POW hydration backpacks, the ultimate backcountry pack for any winter sport, and features USWE’s proprietary 2.0 NDM + Snug-Me harness system.

The POW series are designed for the alpine adventurers and excel in all winter conditions. Equipped with a CE-Certified full back protector (Lev.1), that’s made of flexible viscoelastic foam with memory effect that returns to its original shape after impact or deformation.

The POW Series comes standard with the 4-point harness and waist belt system, known as the USWE NDM 2.0 (No Dancing Monkey) + Snug-Me harness system, deflecting any possibility of your pack bouncing around regardless of the intensity of the activity or terrain you’re on. They are made to be 100% bounce free from which the “No Dancing Monkey” technology was born. They  engineer a suspension chassis and craft theirpack designs based on their own experience and knowledge.The USWE packs are suited for backcountry skiing/snowboarding, nordic, snowmobile, fat biking, or any other activity where adrenaline leads the way. In addition to the revolutionary NDM tech, the POW series has both a ski and snowboard carry systems integrated into the pack, a quick access pocket for avalanche gear, removable helmet stash carrier, and a dedicated pocket for snow goggles.

Knowing the winter adventures come with varying and inclement weather, USWE has integrated the Thermo Cell insulation pocket. This pocket harnesses the heat from your physical activity to protect the hydration tube from freezing even in the most extreme winter conditions. These pockets are also perfect for storing snacks. 

The USWE POW series was made to extend the adventure, and keep you and your gear out in winter’s wonderland playground.
