Savor the splendor.
There's no day like a snowday. So, find your line and go the distance in The North Face Snowmad 34 Backpack. Made for those magical, extraordinary moments spent sweating it out, skinning up, and skiing down, this pack is the ultimate touring bag for long days spent puttering around the backcountry.
This bold booster flaunts a gemini-tote capability with its reinforced, vertical or horizontal board carry—or you can keep it decidedly traditional with an A-frame or diagonal ski haul. The ABS modular routing tunnels, fortified spring steel frame, and quick-access avy tool pocket ensure that you're outfitted for whatever adventure or obstacle the snow gods have to offer you. Outfitted with an integrated helmet holder, accommodating main compartment, covered-tip ice-tool holster, and multiple stash pockets, this huzzah-worthy-hoister keeps you covered when the going gets gone.

Not for avy gear
Great pack in many ways, but the avy compartment is too short for my probe and also my shovel handle. No reason not to have made it taller; the helmet carry flap comes up higher. So unfortunately I am getting a different pack.
I saw a review that said the 300 cm BCA probe does not fit in the probe pouch. Is that true for the L/XL also? And if so, can you fit the probe in the pack anyway?
Is their a place for hydration bladder and tub hole?
Is the main compartment of the pack only accessible from the back or can it also be opened from the top?
