Reviewers like these things about the Exped Glissade

  • Best suited for skiing or uphill tours as it holds your back tightly.
  • Provides enough support and comfort by carrying up to 30 pounds thanks to foam back panel and two aluminum stays. It’s perfect for backcountry tour.
  • Fits well to long or average torsos as it comes in one standard size.
  • Main compartment has enough space to stuff your jacket, gloves, fleece vest, DSLR and other heavy items, making it the best choice for day tours.
  • It holds contents so well that they won’t spill out when you open the bag. You can easily access anything you need on the side, thanks to full-length zipper.
  • Front snow tools pocket is best suited to hold a probe, a saw, and a full-size blade shovel.
  • It features fleece-lined, roomy goggles pocket which fits sunglasses and goggles in hard case.
  • It is made of water-resistant nylon material. This 630-denier material is strong enough for daily use.
  • Secures helmet thanks to the front removable netting.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • It is not large enough for most tours as it can hold only limited stuffs that are sufficient for your backcountry tours.
  • You need to work little hard to pick items out on the side as you can open it just halfway when your goggles pocket is stuffed.
  • It allows you to carry ski on A-frame or diagonally but A-frame may obstruct access to main compartment of the pack.
