Nice pack! Fits snugly and has enough space for my daily junk (left over breakfast posing as lunch, fleece, beer tokens etc) even after my probe and shovel are stowed away. I love the housing in the right hand shoulder strap for the hydration tube.. some great forward thinking form BD! Just need a thermal pocket for ya MP3 player in the belt strap and BINGO!
My only gripe, as a snowboarder, is that there are way too many dangling bits! Being as this pack will be used (by me) on the lifts a fair amount, I am always conscious that one of the loose straps may get caught up in the chair and leave me hanging! I note that the 2 bottom loops can be partially pulled into the avalanche equipment section.. but they are not completely flush with the packs exterior. You are however, able to remove the 2 bungee things from either side, which is nice. Now I just need some kind of loose-end tidy to keep the lengths from the side fasteners blowing around in the wind!
Other than the above niggling problems I think this is a great pack and I can't wait to put it to some good use (avalung excluded!).
