Ride with the blissful Nirvana.
Mammut designed its Nirvana Ride 30 Pack to keep you comfortable while you cruise over corduroy at the resort and gave it enough cargo space for a day of touring in the backcountry. Its V-frame suspension system transfers your load onto your hips to give you the freedom of movement you need if you're in tight trees. The EVA back padding gives this pack a surprising amount of comfort. You can carry your skis both diagonally or at the sides, and vertical snowboard straps keep the board out of your way while you hike up the terrain park.
Mammut made the Nirvana Ride with highly eco-friendly Cyclepet fabric that has waterproof qualities to keep your gear dry. A U-shaped zipper provides a large opening to the main compartment so you can get your extra layer out of the bottom of the bag quickly. The pack also features a waist belt you can remove when you don't need the extra support. Its hydration compatibility has an insulated sleeve that prevents your water from freezing up. Store your avy gear in the front pocket to leave room for your helmet and goggles in the inner compartment.

Splitborder's pack; ordered two more
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
If you don't need an airbag pack, this is a great option for splitboarders! Plenty of room inside and ultra-accessible avy pocket.
- Love the A-Frame carry; the straps will come completely off, so no sliding your boards into place. I was able to lay the pack down on the ground and attach them when I needed to A-Frame.
- Very compact when full. I filled mine to the brim with avy tools, a mid layer, snacks, water bottle, a Grand Trunks hammock, and 1L thermos of tea (with more room for skins if I decided to put them into my pack); when full, it still retained a very slim look and didn't look like a huge bulgy bag hanging off my back. Not sure if it would have also fit my outer layer if it was hot though.
- Comfortable straps and a hip belt that actually works, unlike some packs that are just straps and don't actually spread the weight.
- Great helmet carry that keeps the helmet on the outside for more room inside.
- Hydration bladder compatible, with insulated sleeve, if you carry one.
- Avy pocket- even when my helmet was cinched down all the way, I was able to grab my probe and shovel with ease. The avy pocket even has a special metal zipper pull. I hope I never need to use it, but good to know it's there. I have a larger shovel (Voile Telepro) that hasn't fit in some bags I've used, but there was plenty of room here.
- Ski carry was great for my poles on the way down.
Just bought two more of these, one for my girlfriend and another one as a back up since they were on sale.
Perfect split touring pack
I use this pack for splitboard touring. The Avalanche pocket works great to keep shovel and probe at easy access. The board holder is secure and you can fit the skis on the sides of the pack for quick transfers from boot packing to skinning while going up. The bag is super durable material with a nice soft Google pocket for stashing them separately. The added helmet holder that stashes away is perfect for protecting your helmet.
Good winter travel pack
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is for last year's version, which doesn't cover the snowboard straps. But the frame, back, etc are the same. The U zipper is awesome and you can quickly get access to anything if packed right. Probe pocket barely fits a 300cm BCA probe, which many packs don't. Heavy, but so far durable and rather water resistant. Will fit smaller AT boots and light overnight stuff for a yurt trip, or everything for a day of filming in the backcountry, or your clothes for a foreign or Alaskan trip.
