Good little pack.


  • Fits in overhead bin on airplanes


  • Lashing straps are short

I bought this because a) I had a gift certificate, and b) I was leaving on a flight the next day and needed something that wasn't a suitcase. I now fly with it all the time, plus I have a day-pack when I get to my destinations. I've hiked and snowshoed with it. Sorry to see it discountinued.

I have been looking for a backpack for some time now and found this on clearance on the REI website. I have enjoyed the space and stability this pack provides. Although it does have a pocket for a water bladder, I would have like to have water bottle pockets on the sides. But I can't beat the price or the quality.

It's a great pack that I have used over and over, and I love the side pocket opening. I can get to the things on the bottom without having to go through the top of the bag. So that you can get to rain gear, or the food, or anything else that you need to get to.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Technical top-loading daypack with side zip access features a unique compression flap and strap system for carrying skis, snowboards and other gear. Fabric flaps and webbing straps hold a snowboard, snowshoes, shovel or other gear--or, flip to the side for securing skis. Fixed top lid has two zippered pockets to keep essentials close at hand. Main compartment features a large hydration sleeve (reservoir sold separately) and plenty of room for hiking or alpine gear. Molded foam backpanel features suspension mesh that is cool and comfortable, plus it sheds snow and leaves the dirt behind. Curved, padded shoulder straps with sternum strap, padded hipbelt with stabilizer straps. High-density polyethylene framesheet curves to fit the shape of your back and protects it from bulky, pointy loads. Along with the HDPE sheet, providing frame support is an aluminum Y split mono-stay. Two adjustable ice axe loops, two side tool loops and a daisy chain let you attach an assortment of gear. Closeout.
