This pack is sweet for snowboarding. Very comfortable I hardly even notice it. With the waist and chest straps it make this pack a very versatile pack, nice for day hikes, snowboarding, riding motorcycles, and even walking around San Fransisco. I never had my water freeze even when I was at Whistler. The felt pouch for your glasses is very nice, though i wished it was bigger for my larger goggles. I recommend this pack to everyone that love's the outdoors.
