- 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.
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?
Is that the advertised "hidden" pocket?
from what I can tell it is for a first aid kit/keys. Things you *knock on wood* don't need very often.
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.
