Rated 4 out of 5 by jpdwyer14 from Good for Splitboarding Solid backpack for a splitboarder. Side straps are spaced right for use with compactor poles. Board can be attached to bag in ski mode or one piece. Wish the avalung could be mounted on both sides. It's on the left. So for regular-footers, the mouth piece is right in front of your face when boarding down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kenny355 from Has It All This was the perfect choice for backcountry travel in winter conditions. Avy gear compartment, insulated hydration sleeve for bladder and tube. Great fit and support and room for all your clothing, food,water and tools. I'm impressed, for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Simon from Solid backcountry day pack This is a well engineered backcountry day pack. At 32 L it gives me just enough space for all usual avalanche safety gear, basic additional layers and I can squeeze a set of skins in. Only downside is I carry a 320 cm probe which hardly fits, but I can jiggle the zipper closed. Would be nice to have a little more room there. It sits great while riding though, and that is always my primary concern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren from A Necessary Purchase If you’re in the backcountry, you need this bag. The design is perfect for all day riding or mountaineering. The construction makes it move really well with your body and you don’t feel bogged down, even turning on fresh pow. The only flaw I found is the lack of pockets in the main back compartment. It’d be nice to have one spot back there to put a snack or phone for easy grab. I thoroughly tested this pack against the Osprey Kamber, and this is far superior.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luc514 from Stable, light and well populated Great pack, pretty light and roomy. I've carried skis in diagonal, very stable, the skis are out of the way (Helios 95 173cm). The external avalanche pouch is roomy enough for the shovel skins but a bit snug in terms of length for the avalanche probe (Carbon Probe 240). I would love to see a drain hole added there since this could be considered a "wet" pocket and a larger pull tab in red. The top pouch handles goggles, snacks and other trinkets. The inner pouch is roomy enough for mitts, puffy and a lunch. The zipper snags/jams in a couple areas though. Inserting a water bladder in the inner pouch is pretty complicated, especially if you have items in the top pocket, the Source 3L doesn't fit, it's too long, maybe a net/ straps would be lighter and easier. The threading of the drinking tube is easy (don't forget to blow back water to the bladder to prevent it from freezing). Overall, good pack, more visible colors would be welcomed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimbo from Love this pack. Bought this to use as a ski patrol pack but now also use it for backcountry. I like the features, especially the big zipper access to the main compartment. Wish the belt pockets could be opened with one hand, but they are still useful. This was the lightest pack I could find compared to others with similar features.

Rated 2 out of 5 by wbigall from Fit Issues Nice pack overall, good weight, pocket design seems good, BUT..... I could not get this pack to fit well for me. I am thin but fairly broad in shoulders and chest and the straps were too short. Fit issues are obviously very personal so this might be great for less wierdly shaped bodies than mine.
