This pack was designed for skiing!
It fits every necessity for staying safe in the backcountry effortlessly with great flexibility so it hardly feels like you're carrying it.
It has a beautiful low profile fit so you don't need to take it off if you hop on a chairlift.
The bag also has an individual compartment on the backside that will keep extra layers and equipment dry in any condition. Both compartments fold out wide enough to hold all the essentials: jetboil stove, water bottle, helmet, extra layers etc etc.
Even comes with a backcountry check list which I thought was a really nice touch
This bag is build with reinforced fabric in every location it's needed. I only got once season on with thisbut I can' tell I won't need to replace it for years to come. With classic TNF 600D Farpaline Coating this bag can withstand the elements and the sharks. You can strap your skis and adjust the tightness so they don't move around. The buckles are not standard buckles they have additional reinforcements around the clip section allowing for additional durability.
Special features I loved about the bag:
-Dedicated goggle pouch for eyewear
-Dedicated coms pocket with egress for your mic
-Dedicated avi tool pocket so everything fits perfectly
-Triple zipper tech - that what you can always access your tools if though you're carrying skis
-Ultra durable and adjustable clips
Overall this is a A+ backcountry skiing bag. Perfect for small strike missions in any type of mountain condition.
