You’re life has just vastly improved.

How could I have known how prescient you would be.

The bag was delivered yesterday by the Swedish Bikini Team, and they left this morning.

Then I heard a knock at the door, and - you guessed it - Publishers Clearing House!

So I called a realtor and bought a little slope-side crib on Ajax.

Amazingly, my knees feel like they are 17 years old again! Not to mention....

And I have to buy new ski clothes, because my pants are now 4” too short, and my jacket is waaaay too big. Go figure!

It’s been a transformational time, but I am adjusting to my new life.

Hang on, there’s someone at the door. Just Blanton’s dropping off a fresh barrel.

I think I am down to one more wish. Does every Kulkea bag come with these amazing powers?

I sure hope so

Doh!

Ok. I give up.
Where is the "ID Panel" on the Thermal Trekker?
The Transpack bags have a clearly visible ID panel for a business card.
Is that too much to ask of a $240 ski bag?

It's the white patch on the goggle pocket I think.

Oh, that's classy. I always mark my luggage with magic markers.
Seriously, for $240 is it too much to ask for something like the ID window that the Transpack offers?

Note to Kulkea: sew one on right here!

Love this bag. With the car as base lodge, the bag has been a welcomed addition to my ski gear. I heat up bag/bootsfor 30 min before leaving the house, and then plug into car for 40 main drive to mtn. Boots (and everything else) are toasty warm when putting on in the freezing parking lot. Very happy with this purchase.

It's been my experience as well. This bag was a present to my daughter end of last season, and she loves it that all of her gear is toasty warm when we get to the mountain.

As an aside, the car/base lodge deal really shows the benefits this bag. I’ve been putting a couple of Arby’s regular roast beef sandwiches in the heated boot compartments while skiing. Damn if they’re not toasty warm when I’m ready for them. Bean and cheese burritos do well too. I believe a key being foil-type wrappers.

Will these go on sale in the spring? I just got ZipFits, which are not cheap, and need a heated boot bag again. My Hot Gear Bag crapped out a few years ago, and I never looked into getting the heating element replaced. I don't care for having my boots and helmet and all other stuff crammed into the same compartment anyway.
