I'm really interested in Northfaces Abs powder guid vest. Not loving the price, but my main concern is that it is not hydration compatible. Has anyone had any experience with this vest? Are the pockets big enough to store a decent amount of water or could you squeeze a bladder in somewhere?
I should also mention that I do have experience in the B.C., I have all the necessary gear, and I always tour with other experienced climbers. So this purchase is just an extra precaution, and I'm not someone from New Jersey looking to go into the backcountry for the first time thinking this vest is all he'd need to save himself from an avalanche.
