As a confirmed dirtbag who refuses to spend any more than necessary on gear, I think these are great. They're not the fanciest goggles or even the best optics, but they work, and they won't break the bank. Never had trouble with fogging, and mine with goldlight lenses work in a variety of light conditions, from just barely light enough to ski dawn patrols to full sun bluebird days. I've thought about upgrading a few times, but why?

Great for climbing and skiing in no-fall terrain or on hard snow above exposure. Im kind of a ninny when it comes to walking on knife-edge ridges and the like, so having a whippet in hand to me is sort of like having the tattered stuffed pink elephant is for my 2 year old. Most of the time the comfort is just knowing its there rather than anything its doing. That said, having something to reach and grab with while climbing steep stuff is nice. One star off for being silly expensive.

I've got the avalung version of this pack, 32L size. Just enough room for everything you need for day tours. I carry avy gear, a helmet, camera, goggles, spare mittens, water, and a softshell in mine. If it's cold, I'll stick a down vest in there too.

The avalung gives added piece of mind, though I hope to never need it. I like the separate pocket for shovel and probe. Nice to keep that stuff separated from things you get all the time. I carry my helmet with me and don't like it dangling off the back, so having room inside is a plus.

Carries skis well, though you can tell it's a light pack not designed for large loads when they're on there. The rest of the time, fit is comfortable. When I first got it, I wanted more small pockets to keep things organized, but after using it, I haven't missed them.

Overall, great pack. And when you can get it on tramdock, it's that much better.
