Sopris 30L Backpack
You might be surprised to know the minimalist-looking Osprey Sopris 30 Backpack is fully featured for backcountry touring up summits or through trees on a powder day. It's the bigger of the two Sopris Backpacks, and it can hold more food and layers for longer tours, or you can cinch it down tight for hot laps before work. The front panel delivers quick access to necessary avalanche gear like a probe and shovel, and the back access allows you to reach the main compartment with skis or a snowboard still strapped to the pack. Osprey fabricated it out of water-resistant materials with snow-shedding padding at the back, shoulder straps, and waist belt.

No hydration storage?
- I returned this product before using it
- 5' 4"
This could have been a great pack. I really wanted to like it. It is lightweight and contoured to my back perfectly. It had the perfect amount of storage for all the backcountry essentials. There were just two things I could not look past. The first issue was the helmet holder. It's not held to the pack, only connected through cheap plastic pieces that are tethered to a fabric loop. I am imagining them plastic pieces coming out as I am moving up the mountain. Not well thought out at all. The second issue is the lack of hydration storage. There is nowhere reasonable to put a bladder setup. No insulation storage in the shoulder strap to keep the hose from freezing. I ended up returning for a different pack.
