For any parent who finds it necessary to occasionally drag his children from A to B, the Snowmule Backpack would undoubtedly come in handy. Designed especially to hold extra clothing, equipment and provisions while on cross-country skiing trips, this shoulder-worn bag makes family excursions easier -- in some ways.
Both the 15-Liter and the 25L models of the Snowmule Backpack come with a pair of retractable cords that have handles on the ends. These can be pulled out of a pocket at the bottom of the sack and passed to a youngster or two who are struggling to keep up. Mom or dad can carry on ahead, offering some assistance to the kids in tow. The arrangement encourages everyone to keep moving so that refuge is reached sooner.
