AlexDesignssHi! I am a young product designer currently doing a project for Lowe Alpine. I would love to hear some issues you face and what adaptations to the components on your backpack could be made. This could include changes to clips or buckles and even a separate product that can be part of your bag. Thanks in advance!
mystery3I have a couple Lowe bags, an ancient daypack and a camera bag. Good stuff.
One issue I have with backpacks with a lot of features is a lot of straps hanging off, potentially interfering with chairlifts and other interfaces. It would be nice if some of the straps could be retained, concealed, or otherwise made safer while still providing a lot of utility in compact designs.
QuaffLots of wear and tear from carrying skis on my pack, especially diagonal carry. More burly straps and material on the bag would help this a lot. Even dakine doesn't have this figured out.

ACID_Just tape those straps up with med tape, so you look operator asf.
mystery3This is a good idea, but it would still be cool if the had a little pocket or clip to clean up the straps.
AstroKushSometimes the materials on backpack straps would rub against my neck leaving rubbed/red mark from walking movement while strapped on my back, its noticeable during warmer t-shirt wearing weather. I have couple of Dakine backpacks. It's a small hassle Im dealing with for few years.
