All the Stuff in the Pack

Now when I fill the pack up like this, it seems that the helmet on the top making the bulge would hit your head. I can honestly say that's never happened. I have full mobility when the pack is filled to its capacity, and I have actually fit another set of BD Camalots .1-3 on top of what you see. Seriously an awesome pack!

The whippet will remain unchanged, they do make it in a carbon version. I usually don't ski with this on moderate terrain. I just am using my regular Black Diamond poles without the pick on easier terrain. If I know I am getting into steeper terrain then I bring it along and swap out one of my regular poles. When I am in really steep terrain I forgo the whippet all together and just ski with a true mountaineering ice axe in my hand. If I fall Ill drop the pole and actually self arrest with the axe. Since they are only sold as one they are kind of an add on anyway. We are getting more in stock.
