  • Monkey backpack vs boot bag

    Monkey bag backpack vs standard boot bag backpack?

    After seeing some of the posts on Facebook the other day regarding the monkey bag backpack, the pics have me intrigued...

    I like my boot bag(fits boots, helmet, clothes, goggles,etc)but looking at the monkey bag backpack just seems a lot more versatile than the standard boot bag

    I like the option of being able to throw a pair of boards on it and go, if I’m just running up the mountain quick after work and don’t want to take all the boards with me.

    Thoughts?

    Itís the best money youíll spend bro! Great capacity, and the ease of carrying everything and having your hands free. The best.

      I have the Monkey bag and a high capacity Avalon boot bag. There is a lot of crossover between the two bags, with the best choice coming down to specifically what you are using the bag for. I like that my boot bag has separate pockets for each boot, my helmet/gloves/mask/goggles.layers and a place for valuables, but you have to carry your boards separately. The Monkey bag allows you to strap your boards and boots to the outside of the bag, but makes it somewhat bulky and awkward to move around. As I am usually driving to the resort and using my ski rack for my skiboards, I tent to use my boot bag for my boots and gear. I especially like keeping my boots warm in the bag prior to use, then isolating them after use when they are dirty and wet. I use the Monkey bag as a mid sized back pack, but not for skis and boots.
      Just these, nothing else !

        My biggest criticism of the Monkey backpack is that it does not have a hip belt. Besides that it is a pack with great features.

        (Unfortunately some of the stitching on the webbing at the back has come undone on mine. I wanted to discuss that with Greco whilst in Tahoe, but forgot).

          Mine have waist straps... ? Or a strap across the front, at least.

            I like the concept, but I find it rather unwieldy when you want to put it down. When loaded up, it works, but it is a handful. I generally like using a boot bag, and a separate ski bag. I think this well suited for back county skiing. I can fit everything in one bag that I need for a ski trip, however it would not be good for airline use. I don’t use this as much as the Sbol long ski bag or the padded monkey bag as they are easier to pack and I can throw them in my car. With the backpack, I need to be concerned with what my skis and boots will tear up, and what will tear up my skis.
