This is the best ski/snowboard/mountain pack that I've come across. Perfect for Tucks. Perfect size to carry everything you'll need for a long day of climbing and skiing in the backcountry. Perfect set of external attachment points to carry your skis, snowboard, shovel, ice axes, snowshoes or other snow/ice gear. Excellent suspension system and waist belt provide great support for slightly heavier loads without becoming too awkward whilst actually skiing. Newer models have a sleeve for a hydration system. Mine's a bit older and doesn't have that feature. Bombproof fabrics and construction. All ski/board attachments are heavy-duty voile material.

On top of this long feature list, the features actually WORK well! Wow. I've tried a couple of different packs with ski attachment points; but none have been as secure, trouble-free and robust as this one. Also, when you are done climbing and it is time to ski back down, it skis well. The compression straps allow you to cinch it all down tight, and the narrow overall width means you can move your arms back and forth without hitting anything.

2 Big Thumbs Up from me on this one.
