Bought on this pack for day ski trips to Tuckerman Ravine on Mount Washington. First impression is that this a very cool pack. Ski boots (size 9.5) fit fine, with planty of room for extra layers, etc. The internal compartments will let me get at essential gear without rumaging through the entire load. The ski carry straps are straightforward & very easy to use.
Unfortunately work prevented me from making the trip, so I can't tell you how well it works in actual use. It looks great!
