First real ski pack
This is my first real ski pack. Used a make shift camelbak for a while but it's simply too small. Just started to ski with my 5 year old so now I have her junk to carry. Goggles sun screen, hat gloves....... Have a osprey eclipse but don't want to look like I'm going to some hard core back country skiing going up the bunny slope chair. This is just the right size. Nice and compact on the lift. I can use the ski cables to hold my skis and carry her 90 cm skis in my hand for the short walks. Tons of straps and cables and small pockets. I love it. Awesome price too. Best price on the web.

This is an GREAT backpack, it's light and has many awesome features! The only thing I would complain is that there isn't a very clear instruction given for the backpack

Great Bag if you are looking for something smaller . it isn't very deep which makes riding the lift much easier. It has enough room for essentials and is loaded with nice technical features.

Very Good Pack
Bought this pack after doing a ton of research. I like to hit big powder runs along with groomed, and this bag is perfect for such. It's not too big, and only weighs 2 pounds. Added bonus is the hardened polyester it's made out of, compared to it's competitors and even the larger DaKine packs, which are made out of Nylon. Polyester is more water resistant. Has built in hyrdation sleeve for water packs that can be worked through your shoulder. Compared to most other packs this size (11L), this one takes the cake by far. It's lower clasp that fits around your waist is padded along with the back plate and shoulder straps. Overall, a very great purchase for anyone looking to ride regular big mountain/groomed trails who doesn't want the bulky backpack feel that you'd get with a lot of other packs.

The Heli Pack is perfect when you only want to carry a few things to the mountain. Enough space for a hydration pack plus a few other things. The waist belt, snowboard carry, and goggle pocket make this pack perfect for a day on the slopes. I usually carry an extra layer or two plus all my tools and some extra food as well and the pack handles everything pretty well. When your riding you can barely tell its there. I would recommend this pack
