Versatile!

Bought this pack for multiway backcountry tours this winter with the plan being to get two or three trips in with it. Super stoked to find out how versatile it is - with the roll-down top and side compression straps, it's ALSO a great pack for single day missions! Took it up yesterday for a six-hour trip and it was an absolute pleasure to carry. LIGHTweight and the fit is perfect. I measured at 19" (which is right on the border between Medium and Large) and went with the recommendation to size up. I was nervous that the city would be off, but it's just right.

Overall, very happy with this pack.

Best Ski Pack Yet

This is the bag I've been waiting for. I used to ski with the Prism having my avy gear inside (less than ideal) but it was my favorite fitting and functionality pack I had ever used. No with the HW55 it takes this to another level needing to make no sacrifice and more room.
