Looking for perfect ski pack
- Low profile (would like it to sit as close to my back as possible w/ minimal bulk)
- Waist and chest straps
- Ability to carry skis
- Ability to carry shovel and avy gear (doesn't matter if it carrys shovel on inside of pack or outside)
- Preferably a hydration system, but not a must-have
- No more than 25-30L, the smaller the better
Thanks all. I've perused previous threads and found some good info but I'm just looking for more info.
I have an osprey kode 32 packs that fits all of the requirements listed above! When I don’t need it to get up, I just use it to hold whatever I want on the hill. For those spring shenanigans it holds 28 beers comfortably.
Edit* there is also an Osprey kode 22

For maximum durability and class-leading suspension: Mystery Ranch Saddle Peak 20L
For lower weight and more inbounds use where you're not carrying as much weight: the new Patagonia Snowdrifter 20L
Both of those packs hug my back perfectly and don't flail around while skiing very fast, which, for me, is a top priority.
