It's not very practical to have a designated pack for every activity--a skiing pack, a climbing pack, a trekking pack, and a mountaineering pack--which is why the do-it-all Camp USA M4 Backpack is a multi-sport adventurer's dream. Kitted out with A-frame ski carry, ice axe loops, trekking pole holders, a rope strap, and stow-away helmet carry, it can load up all the gear you need for a day or two of skiing, climbing, or backpacking, and it'll save room in your gear closet when you get back home. The steel wire frame stays support your load comfortably while still flexing, and the ventilated EVA back panel and shoulder straps carry well and help you stay cool. To handle both approaches and technical climbs, Camp USA designed the M4 with a padded waist belt that can be removed to lighten things up for the summit push, and it hooked the waist belt and chest strap up with EZ OP buckles that are easy to work with gloves on. The M4's also compatible with your hydration bladder, so you can keep your gullet moist. It has handy pockets on the waist belt, shoulder straps, and lid to keep your camera, GPS, phone, and snacks easily reachable when you're on the go.
