Good back country day pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a good little day pack for backcountry outings if you are one of those who doesnt take much with you. It gets pretty tight after avy gear, a bladder, extra layer and lunch. I like that because I cant take too much! Note- I always carry my skins in my jacket. If you tried cramming them in on top of what I just listed, they would not fit. The "insulated hydration hose" deal works about as poorly as they all do in cold conditions. The avy gear is quick to get to with the internal partition and it carries skis well enough. The ski carry isnt why you buy this though. You want this pack because it skis really well and seems like its durable enough for many seasons.
