Sized for a full day in the backcountry, the burly SnowDrifter 30L has a close-fitting, freeride-oriented design that complements the demands of moving through the mountains under your own power. The large main compartment opens two ways - via a fast U-shaped zippered lid or a zip-open back panel that provides instant access to all your gear without unloading the pack. A second pocket, dedicated for snow safety tools, has individual sleeves for your probe, shovel, snow saw and more. A separate pocket keeps your goggles handy. The suspension system incorporates heat-venting, snow-sloughing mesh on the shoulder straps, back panel and padded waistbelt for all-day carrying comfort; zippered stash pockets on the waistbelt hold all the items you want to keep close at hand. Front and side compression straps with locking cam buckles provide numerous carry options for your skis, board and helmet. The top-mounted haul handle is reinforced and sized for gloves, and the hydration-system compatible design has an insulated hydration sleeve to keep liquids from freezing. Made from 100% recycled fabrics including burly 420-denier 100% recycled nylon plain weave for puncture and abrasion resistance and a lining of 3.3-oz 200-denier 100% recycled polyester plain weave. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
