too many useless pockets
Big with too many features. I split board and I wanted a bag that could carry a board in ski or board mode and be able to carry my overnight gear. I have a variant 55 that works well for gear and skis but fails in carrying snowboard. So I bought this to see if it would work. Would not fit puffy system, -20 down bag, bivy sack, gore-tex, multi-day food. Shovel pockets with zippers are also a no go for me. I like to access my shovel without A.) using zippers and B,) not having to put it together which wastes time and can get clogged with ice and snow.
