I bought the Men's version of this pack looking for a smaller winter pack option for my kids that included a snowboard carry set-up. The packs are pretty nice and seem well-built. Unfortunately, the straps are not even long enough to attach a kids' snowboard (120cm Burton Custom Smalls) let alone an adult board, as advertised. Burton is investigating a fix, which is great, but be forewarned that these packs are set up for skate carry, not snowboard carry. :(

This is Nick R. with an update. I received the packs and they are not designed for snowboard carry- not at all. They are neat little packs, with a skate carry option. Skate carry straps are not big enough for even smaller snowboards (anything >110cm). Plus, there is no hip strap, so hiking with a snowboard would not be a stable process. I've decided to order the Burton Day Hiker 12L pack. Even though these aren't designed for kids, I'm hoping they will work decently since they are very small. I'm looking to do some mellow backcountry day trips with my kids. I will try to update this and/or give a review of the Burton Day Hiker for others who may be looking for a snowboard carry backpack option for young shredders.

How baggy a pair of pants seem to you is a real personal thing and popular opinions/styles seem to swing like pendulum on this issue. Judge the bagginess of this pant by the photos, which are accurate representations. Personally, I think the bagginess of the backbowl is just about right. I bought a pair this week and they look like a great design for backcountry or sidecountry exploits. Beacon specific pocket, highly breathable material, well-placed thigh vents, articulated knee, strategically placed reinforcements, etc. However, I may be returning my pair because the Men's mediums have a longer inseam and slimmer waistline than I expected. I measured the inseam and it is 33.5 inches. Waist is about 32-33". The inseam is at least an inch longer than what I expected. I am 5'9" and wishing they made a short version!
