Here's what other sites are saying:
For those that like to earn their turns in the backcountry, REI Double Diamond pack offers technical functionality and hydration compatibility. Zippered backpanel entry lets you access your gear and hydration system while keeping the backpanel dry and free of snow. Top lid pocket can hold snow-study tools and small items; outside of pocket features a bungee system for lashing on climbing skins or extra clothing. Flip back the top lid to access main compartment with room for safety essentials, food and extra layers. Inside the main compartment you'll find a clear accessory pocket and a tool sleeve for a probe or snow saw. Front pleated outside pocket is sized for a shovel and other avalanche gear, and it can be used as a stash pocket for climbing skins. Pocket offers enough room for a shovel blade and a shovel handle. Snow-resistant buckle closure is used on the front flap opening. Zippered hydration pocket is designed to accept most hydration reservoirs, sold separately. Insulated sleeve on shoulder strap stores the hydration hose to help prevent freeze-up and is large enough to accommodate right angle shut-off valves. Safety whistle is integrated into the sleeve's zipper pull. Diagonal or traditional A-frame ski-carrying system accommodates wide skis and bulky bindings. Lightweight spring-steel fram offers load-bearing structure and remains flexible while skiing, and ergonomically sculpted shoulder straps enhance the fit. Backpanel material sheds snow and dries quickly. Hipbelt snugs comfortably to help distribute weight to your hips, not your back; hipbelt features two pockets for easy access to small items. Hipbelt webbing system adjusts with a forward pull, creating ergonomic adjustment for a secure fit. Features side compression straps to secure the load for stable carrying. Snow-specific buckles are designed to work well with gloves on and to prevent clogging with snow.
