This new model, the 2020 TrailMaster TekVest was inspired by smart phone cold weather performance, or rather the frustrating lack thereof, that we have suffered through for years.
It seems no matter what smart phone device we have, no matter what their specs say, cold weather performance degrades quickly when snowmobiling.
Even with a new, fully-charged battery, the screen on most phones will often shut down to protect the phone in cold weather. No battery boost can overcome the screen shutdown.
Everyone’s had that moment when the perfect shot arises and you whip out a non-responsive frozen phone and get maybe one picture before it dies. Grrrrr.
We know that batteries and screens will perform better when warm. So where’s the best place to carry your device? On your body or on your sled? With these experiences in mind TekVest has figured out a solution. We think the best place to carry your phone, and maybe even your emergency devices (Spot/InReach), is on your body. If you’re ever separated from the sled your devices stay with you. Therefore why not carry these devices in a TekVest?
So, we took our long-serving SuperSport chassis and upgraded the 2-stage pocket system to work with the typical media devices in use today. We vented the armor plate immediately behind each of the 2 pockets. This will enable enough of your own body heat to escape into the inner pocket system and warm your devices. This inner pocket is top loaded and is insulated to retain heat. There are 2 vertical slots in each of the 2 inner pocket big enough for today’s devices. The outer pockets utilize our long-established, reverse-entry, zippered design for quick trail side access. To increase the heat source one can easily use one of those chemical pocket warmers. All in all we think it’s a logical way to make use of your own body heat and our insulated pocket system. The pockets are roomy enough to hold up to 4 smart phones/battery boosters in a vertical position. A perfect spot for Go Pro batteries, etc. and still leave enough room for a small wallet or trail map. Lots of room for those personal medications that must stay warm. We have also included some D Rings and other attachment points that can be used if you want to tether or mount a device to them.
