Black Sheep Adventure Sports

A fully featured ski/snowboard/snowshoe pack that fits a ton of gear despite the modest advertised size. A great option for ski mountaineering, touring and short ski traverses.

I think that this would be a great pack for a snowboarder under 6’ that is doing mostly slack country and/or side country riding.
