warm on the fingers and the pads were nice. Too bulky for me and the construction isn't the quality that I am used to receiving from BD. The wrist strap is ready to break after a weekends use. I wore them on a ski day and the air blows right through from bottom of the palm to the end of the wrist where the glove ends. I wear a watch so my left wrist was ok, but my glove covered right wrist was cold.

I will have to agree with the review entitled, "Great pack for grandmas, horrible for outdoor enthusiast".

The neck on the straps is too narrow....I've tried adjusting every strap on the pack to aid in this issue to no avail so it is very body type specific.

The above description says...
- Stow anything from a jacket to a bike helmet to your snowshoes in the welded stretch woven front pocket. Removable sleeping pad straps and dual ice axe loops speak to this backpack's versatility—spend the night in the woods in summer or ice climb in winter with the Atmos 35.

I WOULD NEVER PUT SNOW SHOES NEAR THIS PACK, ICE AXES ARE A WORSE IDEA. THE MATERIAL WILL SNAG, RIP, TEAR, FALL APART.

My biggest issue with this pack was that they say it would be good for ice climbing. Nothing on this pack says cold weather, The straps, buckles, zippers, and adjustments CAN NOT BE MANAGED with gloves on. I just got back from Ouray, CO. and avoided putting my tools on the pack b/c I'd have to take my gloves on and off to make the switch, so I was always hiking around with the tools in my hands which made moving from climb to climb difficult.

Pack sucks get a different Osprey or BD pack.
