Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've taken a couple spills with these gloves and kept the snow out fairly well. I got the correct size but in temps below 15 or so, my fingers get numb after a bit. There is enough room in the palm to sneak a hand warmer for the cold days so thats not a big deal. The snot pad on the thumb is decent. My only real/semi complaint is the finger insulation properties. This is my main glove for what that is worth.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

So this pack is truly meant for resorts and lift serve. BCA says that it is 16 liter, but it feels a lot smaller than that; basically the pack isn't deep, which makes it great for the resort and being on the lifts since it doesn't make you feel like you are riding the edge of the chair. It is at supreme capacity with a shovel (I have used a friends Voile Tele and BD Deploy3, both fit well) probe, extra base layer (choose top or bottom, can't bring both), small snack, and a super basic first aid kit, now that I write all that it seems like a lot of stuff. Organization in it is pretty good though for a no-frills pack. The bladder works like its supposed to, I just don't like how much line tension there is in the hose, it wants to not be in your mouth. I do like the three way lock on the mouth piece though, if the bite valve is in line with the hose nothing will flow, but as soon as you put it perpendicular to the hose you can bite down and get some flow. Yeah right if the goggle pouch will fit anything but sunglasses though. I have the BD Bandit (11 Litre non-avalung version) and I can fit just as much stuff in that as the Stash OB. Bottom line - I guess its just another pack...
