Press Release: Kulkea and Nick Goepper Introduce Limited Edition Käydä Travel Backpack

Kulkea and Nick Goepper Introduce Limited Edition Käydä Travel Backpack
WESTWOOD, Mass. — September 22, 2021 – In partnership with freestyle skier and Olympic medalist, Nick Goepper, Kulkea is proud to announce the newest addition to their travel collection: the Nick Goepper Kayda Travel Backpack. The versatile bag will be Nick’s first ever signature product and it’s everything he could want.

“I personally like the durability and waterproofing,” said Nick. “ I can toss it on the snow, in a puddle, or pretty much anything and the contents of the bag will stay clean.''

This bag is a limited edition version of the Käydä Travel Backpack with a whole different style and profile handpicked by Nick himself. The design offers powerful red accents and a camouflage interior with plenty of purpose-designed pockets - an external helmet/jacket sling, zip-out liner for separating well-traveled footwear from clean apparel, pass-through luggage straps, and magnetic water bottle holder.

The bag also sports a Travel System which smartly separates into two units - the 40L Travel Backpack and the 5L Travel Kit, which organizes small essentials — a tablet, backup battery, book, cords, snacks, keys and pens. The Travel Kit works perfectly attached or by itself as a cross-body for quick commutes.

Nick Goepper is a two-time Olympic medalist for Team USA in the men’s slopestyle event. Additionally, he has the record for the most slopestyle gold medals (four) at the X-Games. Currently, Nick is training for the Olympic qualifications in hopes of participating in his third games.

About me: "Do what you love, love what you do" are the words I live by. Skiing became my passion from the moment I turned 18; a little over 25 years later, I moved to the Lake Tahoe Basin to make skiing my life and career. Along with helping skiers face to face, I am the site manager and owner here on pugski.com and review product for various manufacturers, both hardgoods and softgoods as well as work with manufacturer focus groups to help improve ski gear for women.


I am not aware of any special pricing. I can ask.
Thanks. I sent a message to them too. However, it shows they haven't been active since May of last year.
They have a new social media person, so now I do the communicating when asked these questions, though I don't log in as them.

Hi Tricia, do you know if Kulkea is offering any special pricing on this bag to skitalk members?
Hold tight, I just hear a rumor that there will be a holiday special for this particular bag.
Great. Thanks.
