Verified Buyer Reviewed by Newfy2011 from Buffalo NY on Friday, January 27, 2017I purchased this pack for ice climbing. It is near the perfect size, (not too big, not too small). Being able to have access to the main storage compartment from the harness side is really useful. I offers a great deal of versatility when storing things like Ice Screws, securing Ice Axes with a very durable Hypalon pouch (you're not going to rip or tear that). I can even carry a few ropes by utilizing the well designed tie-downs on the top and sides.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Scott from Santa Cruz, California on Wednesday, December 14, 2016This pack has everything needed for the mountains. It has many different compartments and will easily carry skis, ice tools, poles, shovel, helmet, or whatever else you may need. This will be my go to pack since it is not too bulky, and feels comfortable even when full of gear.
Reviewed by SGregory from Vermont on Saturday, April 6, 2013Pack seems to be built well. Also seems to be a "small" 35 liter's. Once avy gear is packed the additional compartment for clothing, etc is a little smaller than I would have liked. The ski attachment system is simple and works well, whether you use A-frame or diagonal method's; it is worth mentioning you can only carry up to 135mm tip skis in A-frame mode. And if you want to carry skis diagonally, you won't be able to use the helmet holster. The helmet net clips to the front of the pack instead of the top like other packs. This is fine and it works well but it does limit the way you can carry skis. I have a size XL helmet and it fits with not much room to spare. The pack carry's really well, its very comfortable. The only serious gripe I have is the rear access zipper is hard to open sometimes, it seems to want to snag. Once you adjust your self to the best way to carry your gear in and on the pack it works well.
