Touring for days — or ducking out of bounds.
Whether you're heading out for a long tour, or a quick dip out of bounds, the Mystery Ranch Women's Patrol 35 Backpack is a sturdy and ready-to-rock option that packs all the essential features plus a few surprises along the way. The specially designed avi-tool compartment keeps your most important gear close at hand in case of a slide, and the rip-zip back panel yields quick access to the pack's main compartment when it's otherwise rigged up with gear. The A-frame and vertical ski and board carry options let you strap up your planks when the going gets steep, and an interior compartment readily couples with a hydration bladder so you can get your sip on without constantly de-rigging. Plus, the whole bag is constructed from a tough CORDURA that pushes back against the harsh conditions and won't lacerate every time it deflects a ski's sharp edge.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have the 15L version of this pack and it is really great for quick tours with the pups where I just need basic gear and it isn't super cold or heavy weather. The 35L would be perfect for every other kind of touring I do. Keep a puffy layer, warmer gloves, goggles for the way down, some emergency stuff, and a few snacks is all you really need. The diagonal carry will accommodate for some really fat skis (at least 116 waist) The shoulder pads aren't the most comfortable to me but they are great for a quick before work dawn patrol. It would also be a great side country pack if you're accessing good snow from a resort!
