How is this pack for activities other than backcountry skiing/ hiking? Has anyone used it in warm/hot weather?

Best Answer Responded on

While I haven't used this pack in hot weather, I have used it in warmer weather for activities besides skiing/snowboarding. Because of its lack of separated zippered pocket for a shovel and probe, it converts over to other activities rather well. The multiple compression straps help stabilize any load, regardless of the conditions or activity. I wouldn't worry about it making you too warm - sure others with airflow this and mess panel that might do better - but this is still a great all around pack.

I've day hiked, skied, climbed, ran with this pack. Plenty of room, just enough features. Comfortable in all of these situations, Arc makes great shoulder straps.

The ice axe loops work great for ice axes obviously, but are infinitely useful.
