Prized Possessions is a space for riders – both pros and Joes – to wax lyrical about their favourite pieces of gear from over the years. We promise you these are genuine and in no way paid for by the brands behind them.
This week our in-house filmer Sam McMahon is here to tell you about, of all things, his most favourite bag.
I have a problem. My problem is bags. There, I’ve said it now. That was my first step.
I get a lot of flack from friends about the amount of snowboard gear that flows through my flat – hey, it comes with the territory – but even my nearest and dearest probably don’t know the scale of my problem. I have a lot of bags.
Bags to go places, bags to take snowboarding, bags to haul cameras up mountains, bags I don’t really need but do one specific thing so well one time I can’t not use it. Small bags, big bags, giant bags, bags for other people, bags for the dog, bags to go in bags.
I’d like to think it’s down to finding the perfect bag for each situation rather than having some sort syndrome common amongst lonely heiresses and divorcees, but the reality is probably as simple as that.
