Product Spotlight: Shovel Pack

(8/16/2016)

Arctic Cat Shovel Pack for M and XF snowmobiles.

 

There are dozens of different snowmobile tunnel packs to choose from. (You could even choose the one that launched off the back of my sled a couple years ago on the North Shore, but first you gotta find it.)

Arctic Cat brings a new option to the mix that eschews the untidy strap-it-down method in favor of a Cam-Lock design.

I like.
