Dawn Patrol™ 15 Pack is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-Use Pack I bought this pack about a month ago and have loved it during every activity I have use it. It is extremely light weight and great for day hikes. It can fit everything you need for a day hike or day on the hill skiing. It sits so lightly that you forget it is there and most of the weight becomes focused towards the center of your back due to the tapered bottom design. Perfect for holding skis and a Hemet at the same time with no ling straps hanging to get caught. It has enough external loops that I can bring it climbing and it holds all my gear perfectly with extra spots for an ice ax and other clip able items. My only complaint is there is no designated water bottle / bladder spot so sometimes it takes a little fenagling to make the bladder work or pack where your water is easily accessible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for essentials I’m sure you could use this for light off-resort exploring, but I got this for resort essentials. A shirt, spare goggle lens and hat, snacks and a 1.5L hydration pack fit perfectly. It’s kind of long for a 15L pack but it’s low profile and seemed really well supported. On lifts I didn’t feel like I had to sit on the edge of my seat. The helmet carrier was clutch, the insulated hose pocket kept my hose from freezing and it has a lot of inside pockets to keep things organized. Couldn’t be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet, small pack I got through a lot of backpacks ski touring and I'm pretty finiky when it comes to what I want on my back for a 7 hour skin. Amazing adjustability, love the way they divided the avy gear from other pockets. However, I wish I went with the 25L. I can carry bare bones equipment, but I can get a small puffy or anything "excess" in there. It's still an incredibly designed pack, just make sure you know what kind of gear you usually carry and how much space you'll need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patrol Pack BD products last forever and are ALWAYS well designed. I bought this to use as a Patrol Pack. Its perfect, except.... My only issue is that the ski carry holds on bottom of pack are too narrow to slide a modern ski into and are not usable for a ski other than something from 1982. There are two opening instead of one wide one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Ski / Mt Bike Patrol Pack! Perfect for the essential items Patrollers need to carry. The large main compartment is divided to help keep first aid supplies separate from tools/ extra clothing. While listed as 15 liters, this pack seems much larger! It holds a lot, but still maintains a very low profile - excellent quality. While I originally purchased this to use just for winter, I think it will be perfect for mt. bike patrolling too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good product I bought this recently and am generally pleased with it. It performs as advertised and doesn't interfere with skiing. The only problem I have is getting it off. The shoulder straps could be a little longer to make removal easier. I am 6'. It would probably be fine for someone with a smaller frame.
