Rated 5 out of 5 by from industructable I have had this pack for probably closer to 5 years half of which was just hard skiing and then transitioned into my go-to everyday adventure bag, dirt biking, day hikes, river adventures , summer or winter this pack hardly looks like i use it except for a few high wear spots.i will be buying one the instant they tell me there stopping production so in ten years when mine dies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from above average day pack Great pack for day missions. Two gripes though: One, the diagonal carry system doesnt really work. I wish it had a dedicated loop for skis instead of using the pack tightening straps. Two, I broke the zipper on the hydration sleeve the first day I used the pack. Not cool! Other than that, I really like the pack. It skis well. Is not very heavy. Handles abuse. and is not too large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 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 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 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 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.
