Snokart has a wide range of bags and luggage for skiers and snowboarders. The UK company makes tough, stylish and uncompromising products that come in either singular or modular pieces. We tried them out this year on a variety of trips and found them to be very useful.
The system consists of 3 bags that can be combined together to make a larger bag including a ski\snowboard bag which sits on top of the 2 other bags. This makes it a lot easier to carry all your snowsports gear as it is all in one big bag with wheels.
We have tested the Kart 6 luggage system out on various ski trips, utilising all three of the bags – two wheelie bags and a ski bag.
The first thing that strikes you is the tough feel. These are bags to last, not just a season but much much longer. For anyone who skis on a regular basis, this will make a big difference as some luggage just can’t take the pace and although we have not had the bag long, it’s clear it will stand up to some heavy duty usage. Exactly what skiers need.
I’ve recently been on a short three day ski trip where I didn’t need skis as I was renting in resort. I managed to pack my ski boots and everything I needed for four nights and three days skiing into just one of the bags. I had a backpack for my helmet, but nothing else. That’s just one check-in piece of luggage.
The bag is pretty straightforward, no little pockets or hidden compartments, but functionally it’s excellent, with an easy to use handle and of course good, solid wheels. The zips are sturdy and strong enough to handle some over packing – something I had to do on my return journey due to extra’s picked up on the way.
I’ve also used the system in its full glory – two wheelie bags attached to a large double ski bag on top. There’s a lot of kit you can get into this and the beauty about it is being able to un-attach at an airport so you have two parts and then re-connect afterwards, making it easy to transport everything around.
It all fits together very easily.
The ski bag is designed to take two pairs comfortably, which it does and I even managed to squeeze in a third pair, although I wouldn’t advise travelling by air with three.
I’d really recommend the Snokart and I’m seriously impressed. Regular skiers and seasonaires will get huge amounts of use from it and anyone else considering a ski trip could do worse than investing in a proper piece of luggage that is designed by skiers, for skiers.
