02 Mar What’s in Your Pack: Erik Dalton, Owner, Jagged Edge Mountain Gear

I go backcountry skiing at least a few mornings every week throughout the winter, so this pack and accompanying gear see a lot of use.  Everything included in my backpack I carry every time I go into the backcountry.  All this gear can be found at Jagged Edge Mountain Gear. Not mentioned is an avalanche beacon, which I am always wearing!
