Rated 4 out of 5 by from 12 Days in JapanTook this pack to Japan for almost two weeks of resort skiing and touring. Really happy with it's performance, burly material and construction give a lot of confidence, never worried about tossing it around or loading it up. Big outer stuff pocket is great for shoving layers on the skin track, roomy top zip pocket holds most everything you need to access quick, and goggle pocket is handy. The tool pocket is just barely big enough for a good shovel and probe, but it works. The full back opening takes a little getting used to, but works too. No obvious place to stick your helmet, except inside. Also the waist belt adjusters tend to suck back into the waist band itself, making it difficult to tighten/loosen the belt with gloves on. These are all minor issues, great pack overall that I'm sure will last a long time. This is not a lightweight pack, but it can take a beating and hold up when you need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable pack I have skied withHave gone through a couple of other companies packs and never was satisfied. Got this pack just before the season and broke it in during an avalanche class and used it extensively all season. By far the most comfortable pack that could carry a large load for a full day in the mountains. It could only get better with the addition of an airbag. Otherwise it has been a bomber pack. Extremely well made of course and withstood a lot of abuse this season.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shroud coverageThis pack is comfortable and durable. As are all of the Ranch's packs. However the only issue I have with the pack is that I find unless the bag is packed to the top the lid tends to slip down past the vertical frame stays. Which allows snow/rain to run right down into the shroud. A simple fix would be to just to sew the retention straps a bit lower on the frame side of the pack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good pack but.......I bought the 45 Patrol Unisex sized pack. The primary reason I bought this pack was due to the ability to adjust the torso length and I have not been disappointed. The overall carry is comfortable when all is going well. However, as a 5' 11 150 pound woman the unisex yoke is too large, and the result is that the pack is too loose and moves too much making it difficult to upright myself when I fall and reduces my nimbleness when I find myself in awkward situations. I like the spaciousness of the pack with a pocket for my googles/sunglasses, space in the main compartment for my clothes/lunch/helmet, the separate avy gear pocket, and the hip pockets. However the hip belt is problematic, the strap gets twisted and the release buckles hide behind the hip pockets making it difficult to adjust the hip belt - and this does matter on a touring day that involves cold weather and lots of transitions - I find I have to take my gloves off to tighten up the hip belt. The pack is durable but it needs some refinements and for us women, a better fitting yoke. Another improvement could include loosing the odd gear attachment on the back and adding a more convenient ice axe holder.
