PROS – This was my favorite episode to date. I got to test this pack in the Wasach Mountains of Utah. We hiked up Maybird Canyon to the base of Mt Pffierhorn. This pack performed great. It is very well made for back country day trips in the winter. I had my board strapped on the outside and it carried very good. Cool features include: Camel Back Insulation, Fleece Lined Goggle compartment, Helmet Net, Belt Pockets. The straps that carry your board are reinforced. All the zippers have bungee cord to be easily used with gloves.
