Here's what other sites are saying:
A streamlined, lightweight top-loading ski pack for gram counters, the Alias has a pro-level avy-tools sleeve designed to organize your probe, shovel and snow saw, as well as a zippered top pocket with slots for keeping all of your accoutrements dialed in.
Stripped of all unnecessary features, the streamlined Black Diamond Alias Avalung Backpack provides serious backcountry skiers with everything they need and nothing they don't in a reliable and lightweight pack system. When you have the breathing tube in your mouth, the tested and proven AvaLung system pulls fresh air from the snow pack and directs exhaled CO2 away from your body, providing nearly an hour of oxygen supply if you get buried in an avalanche. The reActiv suspension system moves with your upper body for improved agility and balance, enhancing your performance while you navigate technical terrain on the way up and rip elegant turns on the way back down.
For long tours and technical ski mountaineering objectives where the ascent is as involved as the ski down, the Black Diamond Alias AvaLung combines the lightweight, technical prowess of our climbing packs with winter-specific functionality. Our reACTIV suspension moves with you, whether you're hop-turning down a couloir or booting a knife-edge ridge, and the tuck-away rope strap and ice-tool PickPockets(TM) secure your gear during the approach and the descent. reACTIV suspension with SwingArm(TM) shoulder straps and breathable, hydrophobic backpanel Top-loading access and floating top pocket with skirt closure High-tenacity 210d Dyneema ripstop side panels Enclosed A 1/2-zip avy-tool organizer pocket and hipbelt stash pocket Tuck-away rope strap and ice tool PickPockets Insulated hydration sleeve and A-frame ski carry Volume : [S/M] 33 L (2,014 cu in) [M/L] 35 L (2,136 cu in) Average Stock Weight : [M/L] 1.69 kg (3 lb 12 oz) Materials : 210d nylon SIL ripstop, 840d Ballistic nylon
