A smaller alternative to backcountry backpacks.
If you want a small backpack that will be adequate for dawn patrols or sidecountry, check out the Oakley Snowmad 20 Backpack. This pack will hold the avy gear you need for quick tours or short hikes outside the resort, and it'll have a bit of room leftover for a few snacks. And its shoulder strap offers convenient access to a phone so you don't have to go digging through the rest of the pack.
