flan-manwrote a review of The North Face Patrol 35 Winter Backpack - 2260cu in on June 29, 2010
This has proven to be a very well thought out pack. TNF did a good job designing this. It's great for bc skiing in, with plenty of room for short or long days. The coolest feature that really stands out is the skin compartment on the bottom of the pack. It's really nice to not stick wet/snowy skins in ontop of your coat.
The only reason I'm giving this 4/5 is that it's not a top flap/lid, the top zips. This makes it a little less versatile for carrying a rope along or quickly stowing a coat. Overall a great pack, that I would recommend.
