I imagine the HDPE frame sheet is removable; can anyone confirm this? I'm am looking to use the Silo as a summit pack, and will need to be able to fit this pack easily into my larger approach pack, so I would appreciate input on any other bulky features (such as foam built into the back panel).

Also, any word on how well it carries an ice axe?

Thanks for the help!

I love this layer. This is my goto layer for alpine/trad when the wind isn't kicking too much, and for cold weather aerobic workouts on most all days when a vest just won't do. I have yet to find any cons with this light layer, although it does not block the wind quite as well as the MH transition pull-over, but that is to be expected (the MH top is made with Windstopper).

The deep zip allows for adequate ventilation as well as helping put on and take off the layer easily.

The fit is athletic, but not overly snug, as the MH transition can be. I'm 5'7, 135, with a typical climber build, and the small fits me just perfectly.

There is only one small pocket that is sized well for keys.

The quickdraws are hard to touch. They are super lightweight, and I really like the action. I have heard some comment that the action is a little stiff, but I think it's right on.

The only con is the price. If money is no object, or if they’re having a killer sale, I say go for it.

Nice tarp and easily holds my 10.2 plus draws. The only flaw I have found is in the strap. If you are hiking any distance, the strap is not very comfortable and will work loose if you have a heavy load. You can tie of the loose ends of the strap, but this is a pain in the neck when you want to make adjustments. Overall it’s okay, but I was hoping for a better product from BD. The Metolius or newer pack-like bags are a better choice from what I have seen.
