The pack has the right idea, but as others have said, the probe pocket is too short. Also, the avy pocket is not roomy enough for a mid-sized shovel--it fits, but distorts the pocket as a result. Otherwise, it seems like it would be a good option. I bought it but sent it back. Now I am considering the Mammut Spindrift 40 or the Deuter Guide 45. I have also heard good things about the Millet ProLight Tour 38+.

is this a good boot for an AT skier who may want to try tele skiing in the next few years? I am upgrading from the original Struktura but want a boot that is more focused on backcountry than sidecountry. This boot seems like a good weight and stiffness despite the bellows, but if someone else has 'experience' with the boot, that'd help. I have only tele skied a couple times, but am interested if I could score a set of skis/bindings that I don't have to buy another pair of boots for. Also, can you kinda-sorta tele ski in Dynafit AT bindings?
Thanks!
