Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I had the opportunity to use this bag a lot last winter, it is now my go to for slack country, snowmobile, cat and heli access skiing. I think everybody can relate to wanting the smallest, lightest pack possible for the situation and this pack is excellent in that regard. For most ski touring missions I would recommend the 22, this pack has built in space for your shovel and probe but doesn't leave a lot of room for tons of extra items. Skins alone take up a lot of the cargo space so for longer missions where lots of liquids, food, and clothing are required consider the 22. For everything else, I highly recommend this bag.
