Decent Pack (not great for snowboard)
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The Covert Avalung pack is great for day trips when I want that extra comfort of having an avalung out. Although there is plenty of room in the main pocket, I've found the avalanche gear pocket (the outside pocket) to be awkward and too tight. After about 2 months, the tube pinched - when I was breathing through it I sounded like some sort of wild beast. I took it into Black Diamond and they were happy to talk to me and fix it. For carrying a snowboard, the straps are pretty wimpy and I had to bulk them up so they wouldn't tear.
