FrictionLabs Secret Stuff Liquid Chalk from Bent Gate Mountaineering

“Secret Stuff is an isopropyl alcohol based liquid chalk. Rub a small amount on your hands, let dry, and a perfect layer of the highest purity Magnesium Carbonate magically appears. The perfect “clean” alternative to loose chalk. Use Secret Stuff as a total chalk replacement or as a mid-session refresher. Whatever the use, you can be sure you’re getting the highest quality, most hygienic, longest lasting chalk anywhere.” (Copied from website — needs to be revised and linked)

The middle child of Dakine’s Heli Pro packs, this 20L pack is ready to tackle the backcountry. With a few design updates for the 2021 ski season, the Heli Pro 20L now contains a larger fleece lined goggle pocket, quick dry mesh padded back panel, and a larger hip belt. Carry your skis in a diagonal/A-frame uphill while storing your beacon, probe, and shovel in a pocket designed to hold these backcountry necessities. Fit a hydration system inside to keep you hydrated as you work up a sweat. Hip wings and a web belt keep the pack upright and level out the strain from your back and shoulders. An easily accessible rescue whistle sits on the sternum strap to keep you safe when needed.
