Would a pair of skis that are 177cm long and have a waist width of 88mm fit well on the side straps of this pack? just wondering.
88mm underfoof skiis should fit just about any ski carry, so, yes
I have thrown skis on this pack and I had both longer and wider skis in there. The only problem with using the side straps for ski carry is if you have the side pockets stuffed (which is where I jam two nalgenes), it'll get in the way of using it as a ski carry system. Relocating any bulky side pocket items to the main compartment if you have room solves the issue.
