The Contrail rucksack is a versatile and a durable winter pack. A person can carry skis, snowboard, or even snowshoes. Furthermore, the material and zippers are great. The only aspect that needs to be improved is the plastic clips. These clips need to be made out of a stronger material such as lexan or ABS.


This is the pack I've been looking for for years.

This is the pack I've been looking for for years. The Contrail is a perfect backcountry pack. It can hold skis, ice axes, shovel, snowboard, snowshoes, all tight on the pack. The rear panel is easy to get into and the top pocket is great for small items.

It's a great winter pack.
