by cornholiofromPretty GoodI bought this pack to use on Ski Patrol. The pack fits gear nicely, holds my ski and has internal storage for avalanche rescue gear. I like the functionality and rear entry access. My only complaint is that it has no internal support and must be packed perfectly to be comfortable.

by IloveslopersfromSolid pack but no attention to detailBought two of these backs for myself and my girlfriend checked them out in the store. The carry systems (both diagonal and a frame) have been excellent and the pack hasn't shown any wear after more than a dozen days out. The pack has a low enough profile that I will also wear it resort skiing and be perfectly comfortable on the lifts. The main panel can be accessed with the pack still on your back if you leave the zippers in the right location.
I've only discovered a few minor flaws... The pack material became quite wet after a few hours out in snowy warm conditions. I would have liked to see more protection on the top. Also, the hip pocket has a bit too much extra material and it is difficult if not impossible to open with one hand. The shoulder straps are a bit short and do not like in place as much as they should. Overall though, really nice piece of gear.
