Amazing and Versatile

Most people complain that the carry system is flawed, but is there any better system? The pack is definitely the best day pack I've ever owned. It distributes weight in amazing Arcteryx fashion. Pockets are amazingly placed. Fabric is urethane coated for water resistance.
Two complaints: No stays to maintain vertical integrity and the snow shovel pocket is a little annoying for day to day

The Silo 30 has 2 alu stays, that can be removed for custom shaping.The pocket on the outside is designed to carry skins, not a blade; that should go inside between the handle and probe sleeves.

Hey thanks Brandon! That makes sense. I'm going to start using it for my skins. Your site at arcteryx has a picture of a shovel blade in that outside zippered pocket.
