Ben Stonewrote a review of Millet Steep 30 XTD Backpack - 1830cu in on December 11, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This packs versatility really make it shine and makes it much easier on somebody who is a little indecisive on which pack to take out for the day. You can get a full days backcountry gear in there, and a glacier kit/small rack if you pack it right, but also have it real thin for resort days. The features on the pack are pretty extensive, with super secure Ice tool attachment, and options for both diagonal and a-frame carry. I use to be strictly an A-frame carrier, but the ease of the diagonal system, particularly the secure upper strap, has me a believer. I only have two small gries, namely the hipbelt. For one thing, the left side hip pad has nothing on it, would be great to have a gear loop or ice clip placement and wouldn't weigh that much. Also, the hip belt attaches to the pack wide, which can leave an odd gap if packed full, but is not that noticeable with layers on. Overall a killer day pack, has been a brainless go to when packing because I know it will fit!
