Nice jacket, however Burton didn't get it's warmth rating right on this one. Rated at 12, feels like a 3. In northern Japan, this jacket doesn't work for an everyday without a fleece underneath. The sleeves have no insulation. I bought this for a snowboarding, so with layers, this jacket is nice since it is very nimble and it has plenty of pockets in the right places. As far as the unique black two tone color (hard to see in the pics), durability and style factor, I really like it. I'd buy it again.

I purchased this pack with the intent to snowshoe with the board strapped to my pack. The board carry system works either vertical or horizontal, and once I took my board off, I could cinch my snowshoes onto the vertical carry strap. My shovel fits inside perfectly and the pack has room inside to carry stuff for a days' ride. Only thing I had trouble with was finding a good place to put my extendable trekking poles. Not really any good spots that make access easy should I get into a flatter area where I don't want to unstrap. All in all, I think this bag is worth it. I'd recommend it to anyone.
