I have used this pack all winter long on my snowshoe adventures in the north Cascades. It is a fantastic pack. Hugs my frame with no sway, easily held all of my gear for day use and extra (I am a novice at snowshoeing and always pack heavy).
At some points I forgot it was even on my back! Another fine product from this manufacturer, I got caught in a near blizzard conditions and did not have a rain cover over it – there was no problem none of my gear got wet.
If you can find this bag buy it.
