Great suspension pack that is ideal for overnight or two-night stays. Packs snowboards great, and if snowshoeing in, packs them for the down. I can fit my bivy, bag, clothes, stove, food, snowboard, ice axe, rope and avy gear in this bad boy while snowshoeing in or riding a sled to the wilderness boundary.

Just the right size, and great attachment features that allow you to put it where you need it. Oh, and the compression options are numerous allowing for a very low profile pack for day yo-yoing in the backcountry from your camp.
