There’s no one better to collaborate with for building a backpack for snowboarding than a professional snowboarder, so Nixon consulted Nicolas Müller when building the Summit backpack. Plenty of backpacks have features built with snowboarding and skiing in mind, but how many of them can actually help when worse comes to worst? Nixon’s Summit backpack is equipped with RECCO® technology which makes you searchable to rescuers with its special reflective beacons, as well as an attached rescue whistle. The pack is made with a technical coated cotton to keep your equipment safe and dry out on the slopes, but its low profile is also perfect for carrying your day-to-day belongings.
