Will the Arcteryx Silo 18 and/or Silo...
Will the Arcteryx Silo 18 and/or Silo 30 fit a Blackdiamond Deploy 7 shovel in the shovel pocket without detaching the handle.
The pack is meant to carry a shovel and or skis on the the outside of the pack.
Simply run the shovel with the handle side down through the top gear loop then lower it down and tighten the shaft with buckle straps to keep it in place.
thanks mitch, i appreciate the answer. personally i like to keep my avi gear inside the pack. i usually use an arcteryx borea, but im considering this pack as a general-use daypack that might see snow/ski gear from time to time. have a good one.
