Upcycled ski touring bag

The UBACK TOURING 30+7 liters La Virgule X ZAG skis: the first upcycled ski touring bag in the world, a co-branding that combines high standards and creativity, technicality and responsibility.


More than a year and a half of prototypes and exchanges between Chamonix and Lille were necessary to arrive at a bag that is technical, robust and intensely eco-responsible. Our mountains need it!


♻️Upcycled, puncture-proof and will withstand your outings in any weather. See all upcycled materials below.


30 liters + 7 liter thanks to the roll up system, perfect for all your ski touring trips, up to 2 days (or more if you go light). Technical details below.


Made in Slovakia at MKM, the mountain backpack expert for 30 years!

Upcycled materials:

It was all going to go up in smoke, they will soon go on an adventure on your back:


  • Reformed lifeboats for a waterproof and robust outer fabric.
  • Self-inflating mattresses from Quechua lined with 3D mesh (not upcycled for the moment), ensuring comfort and breathability in the back
  • Internal lining made of F-One kite, light, resistant and above all unique for each bag
  • Probe pocket and shovel handle made of kitesurfing wing flange.
  • Petzl ice axe holder in rope chutes and Simond crashpad.
