Comfortable, plenty of room for boots and gear.
External pockets and tabs all over the place.
Loops for carrying skis or board.
The mesh helmet stowage unzips from the low rear end of the pack.
Fully adjustable shoulder, chest and waist straps.
Elastic drawstring and fully overlapping closure.
Three shoulder and waist pads with vented back.
Expands to about 24"h x 22' w x 10' d.
Durable zippers and material
Definitely larger and heavier than a conventional day pack, but I wanted room for boots.
Durability of plastic snap closures (I've had similar closures break on other packs).
Water resistance of outer cover (there's a zippered compartment across the top; nothing a piece of plastic coudln't handle.
