The idea of carrying a hefty camera bag on the slopes probably hinders the careers of many would-be shooters. But this modular system shaves bulk by allowing you to build a custom pack. A variety of pouches accommodate any camera, and it’s all bombproof, so your fantastic deep-powder pictures won’t be lost in the fantastic deep powder. Because it hugs the body so well, I didn’t feel it when I launched a 20-foot cliff (okay, only 10 feet) editor’s note: five feet.
