The Best Ski Pack Available
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have been blown away by this pack from the minute I saw it. I was looking for a pack that would carry my skis diagonally or on the side (A-Frame). This pack does both incredibly well.
It is made of the highest quality materials, unbelievably comfortable and have all (almost all) of the bells and whistles you need. More on that later.
The outside pocket carries your shovel and probe. The large compartment is accessed from the back of the pack, and is large enough to carry essencials (not too big...not too small). The middle zipper area is large enough for a pair of gloves, hat, whatever you may need at a moments notice. (NOTE: I do wish this packet with fleece lined to protect my goggles).
The options to carry other items on the outside of the pack is where this backpack shines. To carry your skis diagonally, there are two loops tucked inside zipper compartment, and to strap your helmet to your pack, you open a zipper at the bottom of the pack and pull out the mesh sling. Perfect size for strapping on your helmet.
I love this pack, but almost don't want to let everyone know how great it is, because then everyone will have one.
Best piece of gear I have bought in a long time, and the best ski pack I have ever used. So good...now my wife wants the Haute route 30s. Thanks Ortovox!
