Black Diamond Halo 28 JetForce Avalanche Airbag Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great evolution on the airbag concept with terrific selection of features. So I got to take this pack out for a spin the other day on a Ski Mountaineering objective. It was a pretty short day and we didn't get into any terrain that we felt was particularly risky, so I never felt the need for its key feature. The pack is accurate to the rest of the BD M/L sizing. It's surprising comfortable, and breathable for a winter pack. I certainly found it rather enjoyable to wear. The bag is burly, and feels… Full review

Jones Snowboards Higher 30 Backpack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great bag. It doesn't look that big, but you can fit a ton of gear in it! Love the helmet strap and probe sleeves. I took up splitboarding this year and my wife, knowing that I desperately needed I new bag to hold all my gear, got me this bag for Christmas.  I have been very impressed with this bag. It has plenty of room for all of my gear and everything is easily accessible. I really enjoy the stowaway helmet sling so that I don't have to wear my helmet during ascent. I also like the… Full review

MFH German Winter Tarn Rucksack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It is a sturdy and roomy 65-liter pack for the winter traveler or hunter with plenty of extras including pockets and tie downs. I like to travel in the winter woods mostly unseen and this German made WinterTarn Rucksack military pack helps me do that. It is an official military pack and is made with quality. It has five external pockets and two main inside which can be separated by a drawstring cover. The main compartment also has a drawstring to close it all up from the outside. This is especially… Full review

Deuter Pace 36

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Pace 36 is a weight-shaving daypack with a very light frame and wide mesh hip belt. I applaud Deuter for figuring out how to make a bag this light that is also quite comfortable. The pockets and features are things people can actually use; I would take this along as a winter day/summit bag. The Pace 36 can carry a surprising amount of weight comfortably, but it would not be my choice for consistently carrying more than 30 pounds on a regular basis. The simplicity that helps make this so easy… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Snowtastic 28

rated 4 of 5 stars The Mountain Hardwear Snowtastic 28 pack is a good idea that just wasn't executed very well. Some of the flaws can be fixed with very little time and money, others leave me scratching my head and asking "why did they choose to do it that way?" As far as carrying capacity, I'd say it's great for day trips, but accessing your stuff isn't the easiest. I bought the MH Snowtastic 28 because I want to get a little more adventurous in my snowshoeing this year, and my Camelbak pack doesn't hold much more… Full review

Mystery Ranch Sweetpea

rated 3 of 5 stars Bomber construction, with decent features, but lacks in carry comfort. I have long been a fan of Mystery Ranch products, and the earlier incarnation of Dana Design when they were still made in the U.S. It's difficult to find a brand more dedicated to amazing quality and innovation in a fairly stagnant industry. The three-zip design makes for easy access to contents within, but takes a bit more effort to open and close than a traditional panel or top loader. Classic 500 D Cordura means durability… Full review

REI Pinnacle 35 Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pack for rock climbing or other alpine adventures. It is also comfortable on long outings. I initially didn't think I would like this pack.  I waiting until it went on mega sale to purchase it as I wasn't sold on the roll top closure. It turns out the roll top is actually much more functional that a regular lid for a climbing pack. I am able to get all my gear in and out easily. The packs fits fairly well and the shoulder straps and hip belt are padded sufficiently. I wouldn't throw a 100lb… Full review

CamelBak Hellion

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had this pack for about 4 months now. I bought it at an estate sale for $15 brand new with tags! When I bought it I didn't know what it was worth but I knew the CamelBak name and figured it was worth more than that. I was right! I have been using this pack for the last 4 months, and last month I went on a two week prepper's excursion and we tested our gear thoroughly. I accidentally dropped this thing out of a tree almost 20 feet fully loaded and it's still just fine. This is a great pack! Full review

Arc'teryx Quintic 28

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent all around pack. Great for skiing, day hikes, travel, class, etc. I would definitely recommend this pack! I debated whether to get this pack when it came out. Did I need it? Was it worth the price tag? I got this pack for skiing, and have now since used it for everything! to day hikes, up an avalanche, to traveling state to state, to exploring a glacier for hours walking along on the ice crawling into caves, and just walking about the city. It is so light and well constructed. Weighs next… Full review
