Patrick O'Learywrote a review of Mountain Hardwear Wayback Backpack - 1800cu in on January 10, 2011
Strap this thing on your back and you'll feel right at home skinning up any valley. The two ways to carry skis really help when switching from touring to boot packing up steeper slopes. The outer pocket always stashes my bulky gear, probe and shovel, while the inner large pocket stashes my food, beverages (those of your choosing), layers and even has a clip to hang some hydration accessory. The goggle pocket in lined in fleece and store up to two pairs in case the light turns for the worse. The upper pocket is perfect for anything small and not heavy, it might start to bonk you in the head on your ripping turns down the hill. The straps are very well padded and fully adjustable. The rear entry system MH has developed this pack is genius, you can just throw it down in some snow and not have to worry about any extra white stuff getting in there. The back padding is a semi-frame for the pack but is still soft enough to allow you to wear this pack all day long. The hip straps are great and each side has its own pocket for lip balm or whatever you can find a use for. The MH logo bottle opener is an excellent touch, especially when you wanna enjoy a nice frosty one at the end of a long day. Overall, best winter pack I have and the options are endless as to where you can use it.
