Rucksack specifically conceived for snowboarders, free-riders and snowshoers. Reinforced side and front compression straps carry board, snow shoes and skis securely. Reverse panel-opening style allows you to place the pack down on the snow and access the contents without removing the snowboard or skis. Of course the front pocket is big enough to hold a shovel (and some helmets). Features include an internal pocket for Hydration Bladder, padded pocket for goggles, internal mesh pocket, internal gear loops. The waistbelt is padded but flexible to allow maximum freedom of movement. It is removable. Shoulder straps are contoured.
