“Size is perfect for a tent & blow up mattress.”
”Super comfortable women’s specific fit makes this one of my favorite packs. I use it for in-town and wilderness adventures. Even good for packing essentials for base-camp camping.”
There are a host of features in this carryall, including reflective webbing for visibility, full-trampoline back panel for breathability and comfort and a hydration sleeve.
“This pack is great for day trips. Comfortably fit a light jacket, picnic blanket, flip flops/water shoes, small water pack and light lunch. The pockets are so deep that you may have to turn it upside down and shake out any hidden lighters or baggies before taking it as a carry on when flying! Only downside would be the support cords can making it a little clumsy when taking off. Would recommend to a person wanting to get into enjoying their state parks in a slightly more than casual way.”
“Great for use during backcountry ski trips or hikes. I looked at a ton of other bags before buying this and don't regret my decision at all. One note is that it's not big enough to use as a true ski backpack, if that's what you're in the market for. It won't fit a pair of Aki boots. Perfect if you need a day pack.”
“This new Snomad 23 pack is a great size for day-long trips when you don't need an airbag. I can fit all of my avalanche tools, first aide kit, skins, extra base layer, extra mid layer, gloves, thermal emergency blanket, and even has a soft fleece lined goggle case on top. There is an external helmet carrier on front as well. Extremely capable and durable material, ready for abuse on the mountain and the bright red is a great color to be seen. I hope to see more bright color options in the future for this pack.”
