USWE Pow 16




What we think

USWE (pronounced - YOU-SWEEE) makes one thing: phenomenal product. 

Lately, if you've been paying attention to some of the racing scene, you've seen these on some world-class athletes crushing events like Leadville 100, UNBND Gravel, or SBT GRVL.

USWE makes bounce-free action packs that provide the perfect fit on an individual level – developed and tested together with top athletes, pro mountain bikers, and core weekend warriors since 2007. Their mission from day one is to design packs that you can wear in action with a super-snug race fit.

What makes this pack different?

Tailored for the aggressive winter adventurist, the Pow 16 is your dependable companion for protecting your back and gear on ski adventures and rugged terrain.

As part of the Protector Pack series, this is a practical Ski backpack that instills confidence and safety through the removable multi-compliant CE-certified SAS-TEC central back protector (SC-1/CB52). Crafted from flexible viscoelastic foam with a "memory" effect, it quickly regains its shape after absorbing impacts or deformation, ensuring your safety during unexpected challenges or falls.

This pack was designed to make your backcountry days easy, too. You can climb up the mountain a lot easier by attaching your skiis or snowbaord to the back of the backpack. It also incorporates many features of the winter packs, including Thermo Cell technology to insulate your items and hydration against the cold weather. They've thought of it all with this one.


  • 16L total volume
  • 3.0L / 100 oz hydration capacity (not Included)
  • Weight:  1210g (*excl. protector)
  • Certified back protector
  • Thermo Cell technology for insulation 
  • Avalanche Equipment pocket for better access
  • External helmet carry system, a snowboard carry system, and the ski carry system on the side
  • NDM 2.0 + Snug Me Harness System 


This is a one size fits most, in Carbon Black or White. For torso length: 43 - 55cm / 17 - 22". 

Setup Step 1: The harness is attached to the backplate using velcro, detach the harness to reveal multiple harness size markings stemming from 1-10. Taller or bigger people usually find the best setting around 5-10 and shorter people usually find a good fit at 1-5

Setup Step 2: Use the Snug-Me System to set it up around the whole torso for a secure and bounce free fit.

How do I use it?

Use this for your days in the backcountry when you need to travel light and when tackling aggressive terrain for more peace of mind.
