Damn good pack!

Essentially the best ski pack I've used to date. Super light, more spacious than you'd think, and tons of great features. The best - the gear garage and skin pocket. Perfect for having your key items stashed and ready to go in either transition direction. Back panel access is well designed (no having to unstrap/unclip anything to open).
Only nitpick I could make so far is that I wish the stretch zip pocket on the right hip strap was slightly bigger/baggier, and the waist belt buckle takes a few goes to get used to with gloves. If it was 0.5" bigger it might be a bit easier.

Love my new ski pack!

I fumbled w the waist belt buckle, but got used to it after awhile. I still switched it w a fastex buckle. I am 5’4”, my pack is a Small/Medium, it fits pretty well, but my load adjustment straps are maxed out and my shoulder straps are within 1” of being maxed out. I feel like the helmet carrier could be a little wider. All of that being said, I love the compartments, load size flexibility and the way it looks!

Mega Cool Product

First of all…I just love the bag! Great work Kyle. Thank you.
The only thing i‘m unsure about is the waterpoofness because of the (super nice) back access and the seams are not sealed. I couldn‘t test that out but actually in the winter it shouldn‘t even rain right;)…
Besides that its a fantastic product and i have a ton of fun with the backpack.
Thanks again.

Just when I thought I’d never find the perfect backcountry ski backpack I did. Couldn’t be happier with this pack! It has a spot for everything and it’s lighter than anything else I’ve tried. Also skies incredibly well and is extremely durable.

Best yet!

Definitely the most feature-rich, dialed pack I've had the pleasure of using so far! The front stretchy pocket is perfect for stashing hardboot split bindings and skins. The diagonal carry works with super wide splitboards (~130mm skis) which is awesome!

I would have never thought the back panel access would be so game-changing! It's integrated well and those zippers are butter. The pack carries weight really well, and I can see it performing well when loaded for an overnight.

A couple of quirks I have found so far:
- I'm not a fan of the hip buckle, but that's easy to swap out
- Due to the width and helmet on your pack, it's kinda hard to get the tips together for an "A" frame split carry (it's still secure enough without a ski strap)
- If your booting up with a split assembled on your back you lose access to the dedicated ice axe carry

Keep up the good work Kyle, can't wait to see what comes next from Raide!
