I noticed that this bag has straps across the back. Are these strong enough to used cary a snowboard? I have been trying to find a pack that I can use for backpacking in the summer, but that has a verticle snowboard carying system so I can use it for backcountry riding in the winter. Thanks.
should carry a snowboard, but this is quite a big pack for backcountry snowboarding unless you are doing a multi day tour
My favorite pack for backcountry snowboard touring and hiking is the Dakine Poacher. Designed to hold your board, and a great pack for weekend hiking in the summer. Not as light as this Osprey pack, but the Poacher was built for what you're looking for.
