I am just getting into the world of "beyond the lift lines"....I am looking for a backpack ...hate wearing backpacks.... ..but....the "lesser of the two-evils"...... what backpack would y'all recommend for me, if, all I am looking for is storage space for 32 oz of........water.......yes, let's go with water as well as external straps that I can attach my avie probe and ascent poles (to assist on the ascent).... at the risk of sounding redundant ... I am a knuckle dragger....full disclosure....so I am most concerned with being able to securely stow my shovel in addition to an undisclosed volume of "personal items " for my ascent
re-reading the above collection of words, to the best of your best focus group's ability... what backpack best fits my highly specific specifications?
I used this pack for day trips last year in the backcountry. Fit my shovel (internally), probe and beacon. I still had room for lunch, an extra layer, and my Osprey bladder. This bag does not have a strap for Poles... which I would also like for my poles.
Overall its a good low profile pack. Just have to pack smart.
Pray for snow
I'd Go for the new paradise bag. I have this one the new one is 18L instead of 15L and better designed pockets. The Comfort of this bag for day trips is unbeatable, if you want to carry more than just the bare essintials I would suggest another bag.
I use it for split boarding fits perfectly on the way down as thats when is most packed. shovel, probe, skins, Poles, sunglasses, 1 L water, Hoodie, and snow study kit? and some perkiest just incase haha
