I'm looking for a pack for alpine skiing....
I'm looking for a pack for alpine skiing. I was hoping to find a pack that could carry my shell and a day of consumables, etc., that won't get in the way on the lift. Can this bag be worn high on the back? Can you easily swing it around to the front prior to loading?
Mountainsmith's lumbar packs sit a the waist. They can't be worn high on the back. You can undo the waist belt and spin it around to the front easily.
However, My dad skis with this pack frequently and I know there is no way you can fit a ski shell and a day's-worth of food inside it. You need a bigger pack.
