This is a solid bag for just carrying your stuff to the mountain or carrying your backcountry gear. The nylon fabric on the inside feels a little flimsy, but so far it has held up to some abuse. The little pocket inside one of the two main pockets is the perfect size to hold sunglasses, my wallet, cell phone, camera, keys, and any other smaller things you don't want swimming around in the bottom. Perfect size to fit a probe and a shovel as well as your jacket for those big hikes. My one qualm: the straps that hold the snowboard loosens pretty easily, so I just tie a loose knot at the base.
