I'd pick stabbing leg with said instrument BEFORE riding and tucking it into the pouch gash created

Even shops out here in Atlanta carry those. Maybe all the shops by you were sold out?

lol @ people who use backpacks and "leg pouches" at resorts. Unless you are in utah or colorado and about to drop in to a gnarly chute and need to quick fix your equipment or you could fall and die...i see no reason to have any kind of backpack or carrying device. I realize everyone has a choice and why should i care what they wear blah blah whatever, save it. If you are at a resort i would say on average you are never more than 20-30 minutes from the lodge, so what do you need to carry that is so important it cant wait 20 minutes? I could never snowboard with a backpack. It just throws off your balance and weighs down your heel edge and is unnecessary. So you want a leg pouch to carry a fixy tool (thats what i call it) i guarantee it will fit in any side pocket of your jacket and you will not feel it.




(i have this one, works flawlessly)




HOLY SHIT, that's genius. I doesen't look like it has enough leverage though. Must be pretty weird seeing someone on the hill whip off their belt and procede to fix their board with it

I've put bindings back together and swapped out shit takes a bit more work but for a quick fix where my bindings are wiggling around it works. Then again every resort I've ever been to has a whole tool bench at the base area.

x2 for the work benches at every resort, but every now and then someone finds a way to gnaw through the steel cable they attach the tools to the work bench with and steals it...why. I dont get why people do such ridiculous things.

that would happen all the time at carinthia, nothing like needing a screw driver the one time you forget your tool and the screw driver on the bench is missing.

The only place worse on the east coast for having the tools stolen then Mt. Snow is Hunter... I don't think I've ever seen the screw driver there when I needed it.
