Better than a pack mule.
This pack hauls. It has tons of space without being bulky, and is really comfortable. It does what it should do, plain and simple. It's pretty adjustable, carries skis nicely, and has enough room for whatever you're carrying. The internal bladder pocket is great and the zippered strap compartment for the mouthpiece keeps the tube from freezing. The straps are all rather long, but a pair of scissors or some duct tape fixes that and allows you to dial in your fit. Great colors too. Overall great pack.
