Works Well

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this pack for three years on ski patrol and have been impressed. This this has not even torn yet. It is very durable and can carry everything I need. This usually consists of avalanche gear, medical supplies, and lunch. The goggle pocket is also useful. I wish this pack had a way to hold a helmet more efficiently though. It would come in handy when hiking. I tend to over heat. It's a great pack.

It Can Do That?!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Carries everything I need on a long day tour or a short hike out of the resorts. Easy carry system for the skis, fleece-lined goggle pocket, avi gear fits snugly in external pocket, and I have room for extras. I love the pockets on the waist belt for snacks/ accessories on the hike.

I'm 5'9" and use the S/M

It also creates insta-Pow. Not sure how BD pulled that off, but when you wear it, you ski pow.

Poor back access

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I did a lot of research and decided on this pack. One of the most important features of a ski pack for me is the back access. I was immediately dissatisfied when I examined it and found a very small back access. I decided within 5 minutes to return it, which I did. I ended up buying the Deuter Freerider Pro, which so far I love. Great back access for one thing.

Does it work with a camelbak bladder?

Yes......the CB bladder will fit perfect. I use one in my Bandit and Covert packs.

Is there a lined pocket for eyewear (sun glasses, goggles) and is it large enough to fit Smith I/O goggles? Also - can you hang a helmet somewhere on the outside of the pack?

Responded on

Just bought this pack, and there is a fleece lined goggle pocket, in between the two pannels (wet/dry) and although there isn't a helmet carry you can use the top two snowboard-carry straps to fix a helmet

Impressed

Impressed with this pack. A-frame, vertical and side angle mount for skis, you could also get a snowboard on here. Nice internal frame to help keep pack sturdy with skis on it. 2 small waist belt pockets for tool or head lamp. Separate compartment with organizer slips for probe, shovel handle, snow saw, and shovel blade. Nice room in main compartment which can be accessed by padded zipper area thats against the back with a small slip for hydradtion system. 1 small fleece lined top pocket for quick access to snacks etc.. I find the pack to be light and has many adjustments to dial in for fit. I run the smaller size and get alot of gear in it. Well done!

Does Anybody make a backback, around 48L (not the Dakine Poacher) that has a dedicated snowbord carry? I need on that size for overnight splitboarding missions.

Responded on

Hey there, you might be tough pressed to find one only "specifically" for snowboarding, especially in that size... You could try the Arc'teryx Miura 50... I personally use my Osprey Argon 110 when splitboarding since I can carry in ski mode or together (horizontal)...

Responded on

The Arc'teryx Arrakis comes in a 50L and it has a dedicated vertical snowboard carry.

Nice, but not that hydration-friendly

Being able to carry liquids is important to me, so while this pack seemed really solid and well-put-together, the hydration features were not where I want them to be. The sleeve was really small and kind of flimsy, and I could not locate a port anywhere. It ended up going back, but if you're looking for a solid winter pack, it's worth considering.

Responded on

it took some searching but the sleeve holds up very well. But it isn't compatible with Dakine\Nalgene bladders

My best piece of gear. Ever.

This by far has been the best pack I've owned. Period. I've used it for back country skiing, snowshoeing, alpine climbing, hiking, and even mountain biking. I purchased the pack in January of 2009 and still am using it to date. Not much wear or tear after several thousand miles and well over 500,000 vertical feet of use since the purchase. I run mine with a 6 liter MSR Dromedary hydration bladder, custom axe/trekking pole attachment system on the left shoulder strap. I've also added clips to stow the trekking/ski poles to the sides of the pack as well.

The main drawback I see with the pack is shoulder/back venting. I understand that the pack is primarily used during the winter season, though I've seen the Deuter equivalent (Freeride 30) rigged with breathable mesh. If this pack had that feature incorporated in the future I'd be the first in line for one.

As far as longevity, the nylon materials the pack is made of have withstood the elements incredibly well. Minimal signs of wear after being used for long periods several days a week. I did snap the frame about six months ago, however I was able to purchase some aluminum rod about the same diameter as the existing frame and bent/shaped the rod pretty much to the exact dimension as the original. Works like new again.

Everytime I find myself looking at packs it has been hard to find anything like this Outlaw. It's been an excellent piece of gear for the last couple years.

My best piece of gear. Ever.

Found that this is a great winter pack and also great for lugging snowshoes, my axe, crampons, and a bunch of other stuff as well.

Outlaw Pack

This pack is obviously made winter-specific because it has everything you need to go to the backcountry. Pockets for everything, goggles, probe, shovel, and hip belt pockets for snacks, burt's bees, a knife or whatever else you want. The insulated hydration sleeve seems a little short for when a Camelbak hose is out, it probably leaves 5-6 inches dangling out, but definitely enough to keep the water from freezing. It's very comfortable...so much so that I actually use it for climbing as well!

Diamond pack!!

I use this pack with the avalung function for all my backcountry boarding needs. Safety and reliability, along with lots of useful functions makes this a very handy pack indeed. Carries all my avy gear,extra clothes liquids and snacks and has space to accomodate snowshoes as well.

BD's only Snowboard pack

So despite what Backcountry says, it does have a snowboard carry, a very effective one at that. So the pros: the fit, I'm 6' 2" 180lbs, with the adjustable hip belt and shoulder straps it fits in the right spots unlike some dakine and camelbak packs that are too "one size." The hip belt pockets are not right against your hip bones, which I find uncomfortable most occasions, and fit anything from phone, camera, tools to chapstick. The back access is great with the internal frame supporting the load of board or skis, while the hydration pocket located on the panel it pulls the bladder out of the way for even easier access. great avy tool pocket with still some room to spare for extra straps\biners\layer. The internal frame is my favorite feature, with A frame ski or board strapped on it feels so stable and won't do the obnoxious fold like most vertical carry packs do. the size is both a pro and a con, almost too large if you just want a small load like avy tools and a snack but it does compress down. when you're going big in the back country the size is perfect, I've fit splitboard crampons, poles skins tools, layers and still felt like I had extra room.

Cons: the top strap to carry the snowboard has a durable rubber sewn onto the inside to grip the board, well if your edges are even slightly sharp it will cut the threads, I will take mine to get a patch put over the whole section to prevent it from actually tearing.
I highly recommend this pack to any backcountry snowboarder or skier. Next season I'm getting another with the Avalung.

Nice design, poor quality.

I really like the design of the pack. I fondled it in the store for a while, and because it seemed to suit all my needs: back access, hydration, ice axe carry, etc, streamline design, I bought it.

Well, a few weeks into it, the lockable compression clips have broken, the frame is always bending out of shape and becoming unusable, as well as constantly unclipping from it's worthless internal fastener.

The load adjustment (wast and shoulder) straps on top are not well designed and often become un-tightened or come out all together. The one above the hydration sleeve doesn't even rest on the strap itself: a complete lack of obvious r&d.

I am once again disappointed by an obvious lack of field testing and use of cheap materials and overseas production.

Responded on

I've had the same problem with a lot of adjustment straps and buckles (not just BD packs) and have found that wrapping rubber bands around the strap will prevent them from slipping. Otherwise I have yet to experience any of the other problems, granted I do wish they were made in America again.
