Great pack for backcountry or inbouds use
The Black Diamond Covert Avalung pack is terrific. It is great for big hikes up bowls or backcountry skiing. There is plenty of room for extra provisions and supplies. There are also designated pockets for backcountry tools such as shovels and probes. The Avalung adds additional support for the threat of an avalanche. Another thing that is really useful, is that one of the straps is built for a hydration system which can be stored in one of the pockets and brought through the strap so you have easy access to it like the Avalung. This is a great back for venturing into the backcountry or skiing adventurous terrain inbounds. The ski carry is good too.
