My Lot in Life!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought this pack for my wife, whose "lot in life" is never finding a
pack that fits. She's 5'0" with a torso length of 15". I got her the sm/med which fit comfortably in shoulders and hip (Dawn Patrol 32 is too big). The shoulder straps are 1/2" narrower than most packs, thereby not cutting into the shoulders. The hip belt has more webbing to cinch. The sm is actually 23 liters and has a nice narrow profile. Elbows have less chance of hitting the pack when using poles. If you're going light it's great, but for what my wife wants to carry it is too small. Biggest complaint is the location of the zipper for the main compartment. It's on the back panel, no access for a friend to pull something out, you need to take the pack off and the shoulder straps get in the way. The zipper has a slight curve (which makes the profile nice and narrow), but if you are overstuffing the pack, it is hard to zip up. Also, in the avy tool pocket, a 10" wide shovel blade barely fits, and everything needs to be less than 17.5" long (BD 230 probe barely fits). There is enough room for skins in this pocket.
Hello there, I have 2 questions. Does this have "Insulated hydration sleeve and port" likeit deos in Dawn Patrol 32?(http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-dawn-patrol-32-backpack-1953cu-in?rr=t)
and is it capable of 2L reservoir? Thank you.
Hey Soo K. - This Dawn Patrol 25 Backpack has an insulated hydration sleeve on the right shoulder strap for your hydration reservoir hose. Also, it can accommodate a 2L reservoir no problem. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

i have a question about the compartment access on the dawn patrol 25. i know there is a zipper accessible front avy compartment as well as a back panel accessible main compartment. however, there appear to be three zipper tabs on top of the pack. what do they access? one for the avy comaprtment, but what are the other two?
Can this hold probe shovel skins and Bd compactor poles? Looking for a small inbounds quick outa bound lap
Or 2 pack & I'm a split boarder so not sure if I can fit poles this pack as well? I'm sure it's fine for skiing that style but poles can suck up some pack space, & I hate having them outside my pack if I'm inbounds. Cheers Jim
