Pack seems nicely designed and fairly robust. I personally do not intend to use the pack off piste so some of the features I will never use. I understand the design of the lower outside pockets and why they have the zippers going down versus going up but for my purposes I would have perferred to have them going up so I do not lose anything if the zipper partially opens. Possible dual zippers would allow you to zip it either way. I always like to check my zippers and have them all up so when I get on a lift I can easily see them and close them before I lose something.
Seems roomy enough to hold a lunch, a pair of dry socks, some extra clothing and some emergency gear. Water bladder is nicely designed and suspended from a plastic clip. Hopefully, if I end up on my back the clip does not get broken but it is padded so we shall see. Color is not too bad and I like it because it will not show dirt if I use it during the summer on canoe trips and short hikes.
