Familiarity: I've used it several times
Purchased this pack to replace mine that had been going strong for over a decade, so expectations were pretty high for quality. Overall the construction feels solid and comfortable, and I like how the outside is very simple which prevents you from having multiple pieces of gear hanging off unnecessarily. The interior fits a shovel well, but a probe sleeve might have been a nice addition. A few zippered and open pockets to keep items organized is well thought out, and again simplicity takes over. The goggle pocket is nice for long hikes, but the vertical snowboard carry straps seem to be a bit short, and might not fit a wide board where you want it to sit.
