Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff from Pretty much the perfect pack... Bought the 15L instead of the 25L because the latter was out of stock. Glad I did! While "perfect" is highly subjective, I found this size to handle more than I expected. Extra layers, a 48oz Nalgene, snacks, hats, glasses, whatever... pretty awesome. I use this as an inbounds/sidecountry pack and it sustains me for whatever may lay ahead. Of course, the 25 will hold more but for lift serviced skiing and less than epic use, bigger would be detrimental and excessive. The internal avy equipment slots work well for other things (like holding a Nalgene stationary within the pack) and the small zippered pocket on top holds a beanie, sunglasses, wallet, more than you might expect. Shoulder straps are very comfortable, waist belt is low profile, and its avalung ready. Super nice, lots of stoke, disappears while skiing or trekking. Totally dig it. BD has produced yet another winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by steve 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.
