Ultimate performance in the resort and beyond.
You're a woman who sends the biggest lines far past the resort boundaries, and the Burton Rider's 22L Backpack is probably the best thing you could strap to your back while you're shredding. Vertical and sled-friendly snowboard carry options mean you can transport your board with ease whether you are bootpacking, touring, or snowmobiling in to the stash. An easy-access internal shovel and probe pocket keeps avy gear close at hand, and a separate external shovel pocket gives you the option of freeing up some extra space in your pack. The women-specific shoulder harness keeps you comfortable all day, and the fleece-lined goggle pocket and dual side accessory and beverage pockets give you that extra bit of storage you need on long days.

- Q & A
Good small backcountry pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This has worked great to carry a solid board up peaks, including strapping snowshoes/crampons to it in addition to the board. It is a streamlined design but has a good amount of separate compartments to hold water, gear, and small items. The shoulder straps could be a little more padded, the waist belt a little wider, and I wish it had an ice axe loop, but for a basic pack to accommodate day trips, it has worked great. If you are planning multi-day trips or need a lot of gear/water, you may want to look for a slightly larger, more technical pack. But this one definitely has done the trick for me this winter.
Is this bag waterproof (aside from zipper portion)? If it rains or sits on snow, will the contents of the bag get wet?
Hi Jackie, This bag is not 'waterproof' and it doesn't have a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating on it. That being said, the cordura that the pack is made out of should keep things inside fairly dry in a quick light rain. You could always pick up a NikWax treatment to beef up the waterproof properties of the pack. http://www.backcountry.com/Store/catalog/search.jsp?s=u&q=nikwax.
