not really, but for a little while last year my gay friend wore a g-bag on some park shreddin days and it was pretty fun to hear music playing all the time... even though I had other music in my headphones...
well i skied with a camalback for a week when we were in Utah but that was partly because i was sick and needed a drink every minute. But it worked nicely on powder days because i carried an extra pair of gloves and things like that when mine got wet.
I have a Heli Pro I wear 90% of the time inbounds. Avy gear is required for part of the mountain I'm usually at, so I almost always have a shovel, beacon, probe, etc. For backcountry I have a 32L anarchist with all my stuff I bring out in the mountains. I must look like a TOTAL fucktard with that thing on!
i used to wear one all the time with a shovel and food in it. i hate it though (wearing it in the park and stuff, not the pack itself - arcteryx M20; id recommend the M30 for sure). now i only wear it if i absolutely have too, like when doing bc or have a camera, even with a camera though, i leave it with a lifty a lot so that i can have some fun runs too. basically essential if you're doing out of bounds; please take a probe, shovel and beacon... be good with them. if youre just doing in bounds bc, it depends if you want to just build a booter and sesh it all day, or just hit big lines i guess, and if you're willing to head down for lunch at the chalet or whatever.
spark notes: id avoid it wherever possible, but if you have stuff you need to carry (probe, shovel, food, camera), i think the answer is kinda obvious.
i only use one when i have to carry a shovel but mine has a hydration system where a camelsback fits in this inside sleve and goes up the strap to your shoulder. its a dakine pro2 matchstick productions special edition. my brother won it at the seven sunny days premier. i also use it to carry my skis while i hike or sled.
DOOD ITS SO SICK HITTIN THE PARK WITH YOUR BACKPACK ON!! YOU LOOK LIKE SUCH A G! BECAUSE PEOPLE LOOK AT YOU AND ARE LIKE OMGZ LOOK AT THAT PRO! WHEN YOU ARE JUST BRO CHILLIN STOMPIN 180s OFF THE HUGE KICKERS!
yea same here, I have the northface offchute but i only use it in backcountry. I used to use it on groomers becuase i thought i looked cool, but i figured out that i looked liek a fagoot. it is nice to cary food and water though.
