Snow Drifter 30L Backpack

For long days in the backcountry and minimalist overnight missions you've got the Patagonia Snow Drifter 30L Backpack. Designed to work seamlessly with you during touring expeditions, this pack provides efficient storage and backcountry-specific features to meet the demands of human chairlifts everywhere.

This mountain-ready pack has multiple carry options that accommodate both skis and snowboards, so you can keep your hands free when you're making your way up steep summit bootpacks. Burly ripstop fabric ensures long-lasting durability in rough terrain, while the PU coating and DWR finish keep your gear dry when unexpected snow hits. The U-shaped lid makes packing and accessing gear easy, and when you've got something buried deep in your pack there's a zippered back panel so you can quickly find it without having to root through your whole bag. There's also a spacious avalanche-tool compartment for quick access to your most important gear, and an external helmet carry that lets you bring along your headgear with no extra hassle.

Mesh on the shoulder straps, back panel, and waist belt promotes breathability to keep you from getting drenched with sweat when you're huffing it to the top, and the hydration-compatible design lets you bring along a water reservoir to keep yourself hydrated as you're working hard. This pack also has plenty of extra space for backcountry meals, extra layers, and whatever else you need for all-day missions in the mountains.
