Dawn Patrol™ 25 Pack is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bag for dawn patrols! This bag has been great for dawn patrols(I guess that's in the name). Holds all the essentials and the organization system is perfect for what I need. Separate storage for quick and easy probe and shovel. Hydration sleeve for bladder and ability to run hose to the shoulder strap is cool. I know most aren't fans of bladders for touring but it works well for me. A-frame and diagonal carrying system for skis is solid and easy to open back panel is clutch. I have taken this pack out about 20 times this season( only got it in January and have loved it each time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nit-picking (attention to details/refinements) This is not intended as a product review (though I am very pleased with the pack, the construction and function) but as feedback to the product design folks. The small webbing tabs on the zipper pulls are difficult to grasp with cold fingers much less with gloved or mittened hands. Frustrating to open zippers when fingers slip off pull. So many simple alternatives are available. Probably will replace with a knotted cord, but quickest was to fold tab ends over and heat seal (melt) a knob at the ends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of space for a smaller sized pack Got this packed for shorter tours and skiing at the resort. the ample amount of storage in this 25l Pack makes it easy to fit all your gear essentials.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly Perfect Day Pack I bought this backpack because it was listed as one of the best backcountry packs on Outdoor Research and am not regretting it. It is a wonderful day trip backpack. One thing that seemed a bit strange was that the zippered pocket on the right shoulder strap where you can feed a water bladder tube through zips from the top and not the bottom. This means that the pocket has to hang open when I want access to my water bladder tube. A small thing but being able to zip the pocket nearly shut would give the pack a cleaner look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and tighty pack! I take this pack on the days when I can go light. This pack has all features you can possible ask for, from ski attachments to helmet carrier, and all these attachments stash away neatly and disappear from view or snagging when not in use. Storage is minimal, but it fits the necessities plus the emergencies just fine. This simple looking pack is actually quite versatile, as it has 2 methods to attach skis, takes 2 ice tools if needed and probably the best feature, the helmet carrier that holds the helmet securely on the outside of the pack versus it taking up tons of space inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect pack I recently bought this pack for my wife and myself. We used the pack on an all day backcountry tour and it was perfect. Easy to adjust and comfortable even when fully packed. Large enough to carry everything we needed for an all day tour including shovel, probe, extra clothing, water, and food. All the pockets are very accessible. The pack was well balanced for skiing.
