Gear Question

Is this pack big enough for avy gear?...

Posted on

Is this pack big enough for avy gear? Mainly concerned about shovel and probe packing up...thanks!

Responded on

Size wise it should, as there are smaller CU IN packs that are designed to hold avy gear. However...

If you are intending to ski with this, I do not think this pack would work well for that use. It may fit a small shovel and probe, but this is a light weight packable pack meant to be used more as a rucksack and stuff bag. Not a lot of padding between your back and the avy gear.

If you are looking for a small ski pack to hold avy gear may I suggest checking out:
