Patagonia.com says:
Built for quick descents into the backcountry, the ambassador-driven SnowDrifter 20L has a close-fitting, freeride-oriented design that stays steady (and comfortable) on the wildest descents. It opens via a long clamshell zipper that provides fast access to the main compartment, which includes individual sleeves for your snow safety tools. Sized to carry extra layers, extra calories and other short-tour essentials, it also provides multiple ski and board carry options (including a helmet) with front compression straps for boards and skis, and side compression straps for skis-all with locking cam buckles. A separate microfleece-lined pocket keeps your goggles handy and protected from sharp edges. The clean suspension system incorporates heat-venting, snow-sloughing mesh on the shoulder straps, back panel and padded waistbelt for all-day carrying comfort; zippered stash pockets on the waistbelt hold all the items you want to keep close at hand. The top-mounted haul handle is reinforced and sized for gloves, and the hydration-system compatible design has an insulated hydration sleeve to keep liquids from freezing. Made from 100% recycled fabrics including burly 420-denier 100% recycled nylon plain weave for puncture and abrasion resistance and a lining of 3.3-oz 200-denier 100% recycled polyester plain weave. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
