Perfect daypack for resort skiing

I've used it several times

This is a great daypack for skiing at resorts and for day hiking. Sits flat on the chairlift and is very light weight. At 18L pack is large enough to carry water, lunch, an extra layer, a spare goggle, emergency tools, etc. without getting bulky. Hip belt pocket and mesh pockets on side are super convenient for quickly stashing items. Have not taken pack into back country, but there are straps for vertical ski/snowboard carry for bootpacking. Sternum and hip straps are secure and comfortable and can accommodate slighter guys without any issue (I’m 5’ 9” 140lbs).

Thanks for the review Eli! I'm glad to hear this pack covered all your bases!
