This pack is super light and holds a huge amount of gear. The side access is awesome and I love the design, as there are no extraneous features - designed with a “form follows function” philosophy.
I bought this pack for backcountry skiing, but ended up using it for summer hiking as well. Spacious enough for multi-day ski hut trips (if you use the pull-out designed for helmets for a food pack). The belt side pack is perfect for snacks. In summer, it can hold my 100oz water bladder with ease and comfort. It bows off my back for ventilation. I am very happy with this pack.
Nice light pack for spring tours, has just what you need without extra bells and whistles.
