OGIO Flak Jacket

This new piece from OGIO is very well thought out from an R&D perspective.  Tons of great features like lined ‘Goggle Pocket’, ‘Radio Pocket’, water proof zippers, shovel blade and handle specific sleeves, along with a probe sleeve to keep your gear stowed away for safe keeping!  The vest also has storage for tools, food, or other things you take with you sledding into the backcountry.

Have a peek at “What’s in your Vest?
