Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pack, but could use a couple key improvements.I purchased this pack primarily for lift accessed and side country skiing. MR hit the suspension on this pack out of the park, which they always do and this was the key deciding factor as to why I chose this pack over the Dakine HeliPro. The pack stays where it should when loaded down, does not bounce or move side to side. The zipper quality and placement is outstanding. The side zipper that allows access to the main part of the pack even when skis are in diagonal or A frame carry is very well thought out. Waist belt pouches are very handy and can be opened and closed easily with gloved hands. Recommended Improvements: 1) The hydration integration seems like an after thought and is not well executed. The hydration port is too small to fit the drink tube of a camelbak through, which makes me wonder what system they had in mind when designing this pack as Camelbak is the industry standard. Would also like to see the drink tube routed through a shoulder strap somehow to protect it from the elements. My water was frozen in the tube after my first run (temp 20 F). 2) Strap reinforcement. The side compression straps that hold skis in A Frame carry should be reinforced with Hyphalon or some other material in the areas where edges contact the straps and the pack. This can be done without adding too much weight. The way it is right now I probably will not even attempt this as I know the edges will cut through .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A triumphant return for the Saddle Peak.As far as storage and fit goes, it's pretty much perfect. It's roomy, but low-profile enough that it doesn't push me off the lift. After adjusting, it fit like a glove and stayed locked to my back without moving or bouncing. I've got a long torso, so I took some time to really dial it in. Following the fitting guide helped a lot. The waistbelt pockets are a highlight for me. They're perfectly accessible without getting in the way. As another review mentioned, the hydration integration might not be the best, but removing the Camelbak bite valve first worked fine for me. I do wish that there was a webkeeper or some other system on the shoulder strap for securing the hose. I'm a little bummed out that there isn't better snowboard carry integration built-in, as with previous iterations of the Saddle Peak. They sell the add-on little strap things, they're kind of the worst. I'm mostly in-bounds, though, so it's not a huge issue, but for others, it could be a dealbreaker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent pack that needs a bit more developmentI have skied ~150k' of backcountry in 5 mountain ranges this year with this pack. I love it. The two simple compartments--one large open compartment and one with dedicated organization for avy tools--are exactly what I wanted. The suspension system and overall build quality are unrivaled, and I like the fit and aesthetics as well. I also love that the pack is relatively small. I tend to fill most of the available volume in a pack, and this pack really forces me to pack thoughtfully, which always pays off. I also love the cross-carry loop, and cross-carry my skis exclusively now (and have even begun to wear through the durable material on the face as a result).However, it is about two liters too small. The brain and 10 additional liters of the next size up in MR ski packs is overkill for day tours for me. But, when I have avy tools (I rock a 240 cm probe and the BD Deploy 3 shovel in this pack, since most other shovels are too big to fit), ice axe, boot + ski crampons, skins, layers, gloves, food, goggles, helmet, 2 liters of water and miscellaneous stuff, and am switching items in and out throughout the day depending on whether I'm climbing or skiing, it is simply a bit too small. I am constantly forcing the zippers closed. Also, this pack really should have a dedicated external helmet stow (even if it is just toggled shock cord, as I have rigged) and an attachment loop for at least a single ice axe, perhaps like a smaller side-mounted version of the beefy, durable cross-carry ski loop. Overall, love this pack, and hope you guys can bump it up to 27 liters and design cool helmet/axe attachments. And maybe a rad new color! Would definitely upgrade if you do.
