Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome light ski pack A nice comfortable fitting bag good for weekend warriors needing to fit all your layers while hiking with enough space that you don't need to cram everything in. The only problem is the sinch, if you ski lifts it can get caught on the chair. at some point and you will fall get dragged and embarrass yourself , it's happened to me and I've witnessed the exact same problem happen to someone else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for day tours, but don't load it down Overall, this is a well thought out pack. The cinch closure system is fast and easy to use, the side pocket provides quick and easy access, the separate pocket for the emergency stuff is great for that (or your wet skins). The swing arm configuration really moves with you -- the pack feels really natural when it's not heavy. Despite having ample capacity, this is not a good pack to load down -- don't even think about walking with your boots attached to your skis or buying the 45. The lack of load lifters plus the narrow strap puts the hurt on your shoulders. After 10 hrs of hiking, my shoulders had minor bruising -- something that's not happened with my other packs. A frame carry was so tight with my skis and didn't feel good, so I went diagonal carry. My Hammerhead binding cut through the fabric on the first trip which while long doesn't speak well to its toughness. BTW, this fabric wets out easily. I would have preferred a tougher pack with wider shoulder straps and load lifters. Although that would add noticeable weight, I think it would be worth it. However, I think most people will like this pack

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ski Pack Live in NW Cascades at mountain pass at 3000 feet. Ski most days in and out of bounds. Can be wet even when snowing up here and the dedicated act pocket with drain hole is really nice for a wet shell and equipment. Not an insignificant feature here. Enough volume in the 35L for me on any day trip and it collapses nicely for inbounds skiing with kids hot chocolate, extra mittens, tissue, snacks, etc..... Just a versatile pack for snow stuff. Really like the lid design for repeated in/out access. Recommend it, will buy another for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple functional if you are looking for a pack with out too much going on this is a great one. a basic top loading pack which carries weight well. sheds snow. my only minor complaint is that the one external pocket on the top of the pack is too small for googles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack Great pack. I'm using it for patrolling, teaching avy courses and guiding. Clean, good size. It carries well fully loaded and near empty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid pack I use this pack touring, and it works great. Good size to fit everything for a day long tour (or a little more) and carries skis well. The trick is using the small pockets effectively, which takes some practice. The hip pocket is great for sunglasses. Can't speak to its durability yet, but it seems to be well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Backcountry Bag The Cirque 35 is perfect for long days in the backcountry. Well designed and thought out. Plenty of room for layers, food, emergency supplies, snow safety gear, and anything else you might need. The diagonal ski carry was really secure when bootpacking. I especially love the separate compartment for shovel and probe - nice to have those separate to keep everything else dry, make them easy to access, and keep them off your back. Overall great simple design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite pack! What I like: Lightweight Durable Shoulder straps & hipbelt minimal but super comfortable Carries skis better than any pack I've owned - no swaying once secure Rotating shoulder straps are NOT a gimmick - moves with you while skiing and climbing; not against you especially when carrying skis while booting up sketchy couloirs Side zip is a must to access gear quickly Large shovel pocket - plenty of room for skins to keep items in main compartment dry
