These packs, gloves and mitts include inspiration from Sam Taxwood, Louif Paradis, Jill Perkins, Karl Fostvedt and Sammy Carlson.
Sam puts his gear and body to the test while riding, and his signature series holds up to his high standards. This series consists of the Team Baron Gore-Tex Mitt and Team Mission Pro 18L backpack. The mitt is available in dark olive and constructed with Gore-Tex technology that has the highest combined levels of waterproofing, breathability, durability and softness available.

Louif is a versatile rider, channeling his riding creativity into his signature series. It includes the Team Excursion Gore-Tex Mitt and Team Mission Pro 32L backpack. The Team Excursion Gore-Tex Mitt features a waterproof-breathable Gore-Tex liner, supported by a water repellant goat leather palm and a 4-way soft stretch glove. Louif’s Team Mission Pro 32L backpack has plenty of storage space and compartments to organize belongings.
Jill is a powerful force in the snowboarding industry and did not hold back when creating her signature series. It’s a universal glove with a collage-style Dakine logo which captures Jill’s spirit.
