Everything about the pack is nice - except for the ski carry system.Pros - It sits on your back nicely, I like the helmet carry, ice tool carry is good, the pockets are nice, and the avy pocket is easily assessable.Cons - The ski carry system on this pack is absolutely horrific. I have trouble even imagining what Black Diamond was thinking when they designed the monstrosity. Sure, the pack does other things just fine, but the reason I bought this pack was to have a pack with a diagonal ski carry system (it will do A-frame just fine). The reason the ski carry doesn't work is because the skis are at about a 45 degree angle and sway a ton. The top attachment strap for the skis is too low on the pack and/or too short. No matter how I had the two ski carry straps adjusted the pack could not adequately carry skis - and I tried a few pairs.
