NEW for 2019 high rise aluminum racheting buckles. Universal Blackout Heavy Duty rack improves on the great versatility of the original but makes it nearly indestructible. The blackout rack boasts 1in straps and 1in aluminum mate black or Silver ratchets. Not only are these much stronger but they are also much easier to use with those bulky gloves on. To insure a nice clean fit we have also added a strap guide to keep everything nice and tidy. Back Country Skiing will never be the same.
