Streamlined and simple. Way good.

There are only 2 things I would change on it:
1: The clip for the rope strap is in this really little pocket. When your pack is full, it is super hard to get your fingers in there to clip or un-clip the rope strap. Add 2 or three inches to the webbing that the clip is on!
2: I would like to see reinforced ski straps like on the Mission 50. This would prevent the side straps from getting beat up when hauling your skis in an A-frame.

Both of the things I would like to see changed are super minor and I still give this pack 5 stars.

Great as a one tool fits all solution; from vertical ice to long alpine climbs.
Only thing that will most likely eventually break on you are the adjustable-height grip rests. These need a re-design. If you hit them on a bulge of ice, they lever and crack at the bolt. This doesn't affect the integrity of the tool, just the grip rest.

These are such an upgrade over my heavy gloves and or my liners for ice climbing. Your hands will definitely get cold at times in these things, but they grip so well. I just always have a pair of heavy gloves for belaying tucked in my shell or clipped to the back of my harness and switch to those when I finish a pitch.

I got the #4 Big Bro to expand my gear range. At its smallest it is like a tipped out #6 cam (BD or Wild Country). Sometimes it is just what you need!
