Day touring only - this pack or the Powder 15, and why?
I use the 25 Liter (DaKine) as main day ABS cover, for full day/multiday trips, I use a 40 Liter. I've had smaller packs in the past & I think 25 is the way to go.
You can store bc gear, skins, a small med pack, snow study kit, snow saw, some extra gloves, smith hard case (I keep replacement lens in), plus room for 2 or so canned beers for victory drinks.
