Here's what others have to say...

Is this bag completely waterproof?

Best Answer Responded on

I would call it highly water resistant. The fabric of the pack body is urethane coated making the material waterproof, however if you were to submerge the pack in water, the contents of the pack will get wet. It has a lot of features to keep snow out and the pack can be set in the snow without absorbing water through the fabric. It will also keep light rain out.

Responded on

Water will seep through the fabric eventually. Not bad though.

First impressions

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Lets start off with saying this is an out of the box review, haven't taken it in the back country yet. As always the bag is extremely well made, typical Arc'teryx craftsmanship. The layout seems to make a lot of sense, everything you need and nothing you don't. I really like that the lid comes off and the pack is still very well sealed. This will be nice for shorter day hikes or inbounds riding. The side zipper can be hard to close if the pack is loaded up, especially with gloves on. But that's common with side access zippers. My main concern is the waist and shoulder straps, which have ZERO padding. I'm not sure what the designers were thinking. It's not really a problem when you have on a ski jacket and a fleece or something similar. But if you just have a shell on, or maybe just a t-shirt, there in no padding and the waist especially can uncomfortable quickly (even with <20lbs in the bag). I'm interested to see how with will play out after wearing the bag for a few days in the backcountry. I will follow up when that happens.

Why do you write a review when you haven't really tried the pack yet?

Does anyone know what the little zipper...

Does anyone know what the little zipper pocket at the bottom of the pack (on the inside) is for?

Responded on

from what I can tell it is for a first aid kit/keys. Things you *knock on wood* don't need very often.

Responded on

Hiding your (now legal in some states) items from nosy park rangers and ski patrollers.
I think its meant for your keys\wallet kinda thing. I did stuff my 1st aid kit into it. Otherwise its pretty useless, if anything it could be under the brain or inside the "Wet" pocket.

How do you fix skis diagonally on this...

How do you fix skis diagonally on this pack, specifically the top attachment?

It isn't very intuitive but there is a strap to do it both bottom and top. Reinforced loop bottom and fastex buckle nylon strap on top. Still have to take your pack off and on to use it. Trying to do it with less effort..when I do I'll update. Not very well done on an other wise awesome ski pack.

Responded on describes how to do it - once you read it, it makes sense.
