Backcountry Access Alpine Trekker Adaptors

Posted

Pros: Compatible with alpine equipment

Cons: They're not that heavy, but they require the use of heavy alpine gear for going uphill

Trekkers are a good choice if you want to get a taste of the backcountry without going bankrupt.  They are a catch-22 type of purchase: if they work for you, you will catch backcountry fever almost immediately and will be scheming on how to sell your trekkers and a) how to budget for a full-on AT setup or b) how to get your telemark skills dialed in so that you're not thrashing around in less-then perfect conditions.  So buy used trekkers if possible.

Backcountry Access Alpine Trekker Adaptors
Description:

The Alpine Trekker from Backcountry Access is the world's best selling ski touring adapter. That's not the biggest feat as it's the ONLY alpine touring adapter on the market. But that's not to diminish the quality or performance of these awesome tools. Alpine Trekkers adapt alpine bindings for touring by offering a releasable heel to facilitate climbing. Heel elevators, called Mega Climbers, facilitate steep climbing.
