Simply brilliant, perfect size too
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Simple, elegant, and smartly designed. This pack is the perfect size for long day trips, ski mountaineering, overnight hut trips, and whatever else you can throw at it. I've taken it up several 14ers for skiing. It performed well carrying skis in A frame mode. Really well. It is simple and fast to set up. It holds ice axes well. The hydration pouch works well. I like the volume. It's big enough for a big down coat, 3 liters of water, enough food for a big day, and all the miscellaneous items you need. It’s a top loader with a dedicated external shovel blade pouch. The only thing it lacks is an airbag. (Always something else on the wish list)
