Price Paid: $235
Best winter pack ever!
It's light but durable. Simple but highly customizable.
All straps are possible to move into a plethora of combinations. Whatever you want to attach on the outside of the pack, just move the straps to fit your desires. Need to attach more stuff, just order more straps, though you'll get a ton to start with, I only ordered the specific ski carry straps, but I'm sure you can make some out of the straps you get with the bag, I was lazy.
It comes in different lengths which is good since I'm 6.4 and needed a taller than standard pack. The back plate is very easy to bend to fit your back and carries very comfortable. Has all the adjustments you need, but nothing more.
Perfect for a setup where you want to bring crampons, shovel, probe, skis or snow shoes, water bottles, pad and ice tools.
It's made by a small company in Oregon and for the price, without being arrogant, I can't see why you would bother to look at another pack. This is the only time I have really been sold on an outdoor product, without anyone trying to sell it to me. I found it randomly looking around and wondered where it had been all my life.
