I've written about how the BD Dawn Patrol 25 as one of the best backcountry skiing packs out there. Now, I need to include the BD Dawn Patrol 15 as the best "sidecountry" pack made. It has diagonal or A-frame carry, helmet storage low or high, goggle pocket, avy gear storage and enough room for an extra puffy or set of gloves and some water. It's not really big enough to handle backcountry equipment, but that is beside the point of BD taking their ideas for the perfect-carry pack and putting them into a 15L size. Lastly, I need to mention the bomber construction and the way that each feature has been thought through in terms of the eas of use. In the Aspen valley, we could call this the perfect Bowl Pack.
