I got this for my wife, based on outdoorgearlab's review & her short torso. The backpack is high quality, plenty of space in the main compartment.
A note on gear fitment:
- Backcountry/G3 240cm probe **barely** fits, I exchanged it with Blackdiamond 265cm, which fits much better.
- Blackdiamond Deploy 3 also **barely** fits, I exchanged it with G3 Speed Tech Elle. I could have gone a little bigger than the G3 if I want.
Kept it on my STI all winter, carried snowboard >30 times.
It get the job done, and the price is reasonable. There're wind noise but I don't care that much.
I wish they made it easier to adjust and take-off (like just unscrew one not two screws), thus minus one star. But once you put it on, it's solid.
Better design than Flow's. The lift relief not only help while you're on the lift, but also helps getting in easier and buckle tighter than Flow's. Highly recommend!
