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

DaKine Frontier 36L

rated 4 of 5 stars Awesome, durable, full feature winter pack. I use the Dakine Frontier with my K2 Panoramic Splitboard.  It doesn't have a dedicated snowboard carry, but both the cable carry and A-frame carry methods work for me.  In most cases, if I'm carrying my split, it's because I'm on my way up and it's too steep for my skins to grip.  I rarely have a need to carry it otherwise.   The hydration bladder tube is a little hard to get into the shoulder strap on mine because there is a plastic panel going across… Full review

Mammut Trea Guide 40+7

rated 4 of 5 stars A good pack for ski mountaineering. Durable material, nice equipement-specific features and comfortable carry system. Recommended for women who want a fairly large pack for day trips or long weekends. I bought this pack specifically to use for ski mountaineering, although I'm hoping it will be good for some hiking in the summer as well. In the store, I was specifically looking for a pack of about 40 liters, with a good ski carry system and a 'wet' pocket to separate out skins, shovel and probe. Full review

Osprey Kode 30

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A decent sidecountry pack, but a little too small for full-day backcountry tours. I have used this pack for a couple of seasons, mainly on backcountry ski tours as it is designed for, but also for some day hikes. It's at its best for spring tours when I don't need to carry a lot of extra bulky clothing, but is space-limited for winter tours, especially if I need to carry crampons. I am tall with a long back, but the pack fits me well, and I like the minimally padded shoulder straps and belt, which… Full review

Arc'teryx Quiver

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great left-sided pack for snow, Fast and Light, or school. Somewhat stiff, very durable. This pack is designed to slide in front while you are on the chairlift. That is the number one feature for the Quiver.  The zippers are easy to undo, and you can access your stuff without taking off the pack. I bought this pack to replace the removable fanny-top of my Bora 80 which I use as a fast and light day pack. The disadvantage of this pack is that it is designed for one shoulder use only, and the right… Full review

Lowe Alpine Fall Line 35

rated 5 of 5 stars I have had this pack for four seasons now and this unit is awesome. This pack will haul any type of winter gear that you want to put on it, skis, snowshoes, poles, climbing gear, shovel, etc. It also takes one hell of a beating out in the forest. If you're doing backcountry tele there's not a branch that can hurt this thing. This is a great day pack. Full review

Arc'teryx Silo 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great backpack for winter hiking/ski touring. I've used this pack on a variety of trips and it performs well all over. Winter is where it shines. The fabric + zippers are waterproof so snow and rain roll right off. The internal organization makes packing easy. Tools have their place with plenty of room for extra clothing, food, and survival gear. I have not carried my skis but the straps feel very durable. Hip belt is not much, but since I carry less than 15 pounds it is not critical. Shoulder straps… Full review
