Perfect for slackcountry or small touring trips.
This pack held all of my avy gear (bca tour shovel with probe, foldable saw) and my skins in the wet/avy pocket. In the dry pocket it held my bulky sweatshirt and food. holding skis or snowboard aren't a problem. It's very easy to put things on. Fat pow skis are a bit tricky to get through the loops for the A-Frame option, but they will fit, my Mr. Pollard Opus fit after some coaxing.
Great pack for small tours!
I highly recommend it!
